Event: "SCGIS: Earth’s vital signs: Planetary-scale monitoring with Google Earth Engine".
When: May 15, 2019 @ 11AM PT
Where: Online Webinar
Satellites have been systematically collecting imagery and scientific measurements of our changing planet for more than 40 years, yet until recently this treasure trove of “big data” has not been online and readily available for high-performance data mining. The Google Earth Engine platform (earthengine.google.com) was developed to facilitate “turning pixels to knowledge” at global scale for societal benefit. Earth Engine hosts online a multi-petapixel public data catalog, updating daily, together with tools that support massively-parallel geospatial analysis on datasets such as satellite and aerial imagery, weather and climate.
As initiator and leader of Google Earth Engine, Rebecca Moore will describe the experiences of applying Google's mapping tools to the world's pressing problems in areas such as environmental conservation, human rights and creating a sustainable society.
The Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) presents this webinar in partnership with the Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS).
