This course will introduce you to Google Earth Engine (GEE). Google Earth Engine is a cloud-based platform that enables large-scale
processing of satellite imagery to detect changes, map trends, and
quantify differences on the Earth’s surface.
The study area for this course is the Urmia Lake Basin (ULB) in northwestern Iran.
After this course you're able to:
Use the Google Earth Engine Code Editor interface
Read and execute simple scripts in Google Earth Engine
Perform spatial analysis in Google Earth Engine
Apply thresholding and export raster data from Google Earth Engine
Visualize time series plots in Google Earth Engine
Apply filters to imageCollections
Map functions to collections
Perform and assess supervised image classification
Build and publish an app for end users
Knowledge of GIS, remote sensing and programming languages is required.
Computer hardware and software
Google Earth Engine runs from an internet browser. No specific software needs to be installed. For best performance the Chrome browser is recommended. Furthermore an internet connection is required, because all work is done online.
