Intro to Google Earth Engine: Tracking a Forest through Time
Thursday, July 9, 2020
10 a.m.-12 noon

(Register for workshop here; Register for Earth Engine account here)

This workshop will introduce participants to Earth Engine, a cloud/browser-based platform that enables large analyses in very little time. It's most relevant for people who are interested in using satellite and aerial imagery to study large areas, long time periods, or both. Earth Engine is home to hundreds of public remote sensing/geospatial datasets totaling more than 30 petabytes and growing by thousands of images daily (it is continuously updated as images are captured).

Using a case study of drought mortality in an island forest, we will explore a new tool for time series analysis in Earth Engine: LandTrendr. Using this algorithm, we will track the heartbeat of a forest over many years. This workshop is intended for two broad groups – people with some initial geospatial or GIS knowledge who are interested in learning to use Earth Engine, and people with some Earth Engine experience who are interested in applying LandTrendr to time series analyses. This workshop will hopefully serve both groups by empowering those in the more experienced group to jump ahead within the detailed workshop handout and in the Earth Engine repository as they see fit.

You must preregister for an Earth Engine account here with a Gmail account. Allow about one week for account approval. Register for the workshop here
