“Google Earth Engine Workshop”
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Date & Time: 9am to 4:00pm PST, Oct 8
Seminar Title: “Google Earth Engine Workshop”
Speaker: Xiao Yang
Location: ZOOM meeting information coming soon.
There is a 1-day, virtual Google Earth Engine workshop that will run Thursday 08 October 09:00-16:00 PST. Registration is free and will be capped at 15 participants. Please follow this link to register (https://forms.gle/a5zd1xsKfAdkhmeXA).
The workshop will be given by Xiao Yang from the University of North Carolina. (https://geosci.unc.edu/people/postdoctoral-scholars/xiao-yang/).
While the current material for the workshop is still under construction, the workshop will broadly pertain to the key commands, tools, and functions of Google Earth Engine. While the workshop will cover syntax and fundamentals of the Google Earth Engine framework, the workshop will also include case studies, so as to demonstrate applications of how others are using Google Earth Engine for their research.
For those who may be curious but less familiar, Google Earth Engine is a cloud based platform that enables global scale analysis of geospatial and remote sensing data. Unlike other geospatial applications (e.g., ArcGIS, QGIS, DIVAGIS), Google Earth Engine leverages the computing power of Google servers to efficiently scale analysis across large regions and over decades.
No experience with Google Earth Engine is necessary to partake in the workshop, although it will be assumed that participants are at least familiar with a coding language.
