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

License renewed for Qualtrics online survey software

ANR is renewing the Qualtrics license for another three years. The 2015 pilot year was successful, resulting in more than 60 new accounts or accounts transferred from other university accounts, said Kit Alviz, Program Planning & Evaluation analyst. Surveys have been created for research, administrative, needs assessment and program evaluation purposes.

Unique Qualtrics features include the ability to create mailing lists and schedule individualized invitations and reminders, create display/skip logic so that questionnaires can be tailored to each participant and utilize Qualtrics' many options for response types and scales.

To register for a Qualtrics account, ANR staff and academics can complete this survey. For more information about ANR's Qualtrics account, please visit

ANR has purchased the Offline Surveys feature, which will allow Qualtrics users to download surveys to smartphones and tablets for offline data collection. Learn more about the Offline Surveys feature by clicking on this link.

Technical assistance will continue to be provided by Qualtrics at (800) 340-9194 or Qualtrics has online trainings and tutorials that you can take at your convenience.

  • Visit Qualtrics' Getting Started website to “Learn Qualtrics in 5 Steps” via five short, recorded webinars
  • Their Support website lists even more training offerings, including weekly live webinars and recorded sessions.

Qualtrics survey software available for ANR staff and academics

ANR is providing Qualtrics online survey software to ANR staff and academics at no cost this year as a pilot project. 

Agricultural Experiment Station faculty who are affiliated with UC ANR will be eligible for one Qualtrics account through ANR, however the Division will not be able to provide licenses to the staff or students of AES faculty. 

This is not a replacement for the ANR Portal survey tool, and the Qualtrics account does not currently allow for workshop payment processing. Suggested uses for Qualtrics include workshop evaluations, needs assessments and data collection. Program Planning and Evaluation will manage ANR's license during this pilot year and Qualtrics will provide training and technical support.

ANR staff and faculty can complete this survey to receive a Qualtrics account.

For more information, contact Kit Alviz, program policy analyst in Program Planning and Evaluation, at or (510) 987-0027.
