Google’s Noel Gorelick: Public lecture

Thanks to all of  you who attended Noel’s lecture on Tuesday and training on Wednesday.

Noel has provided us a shareable link to his presentation here.  We are not able to provide the video recording of his talk — my apologies.

For those of you who were in the training, here is a link to a page with examples of Earth Engine scripts.  Again, you’ll want to sign up for Earth Engine to be able to access your own account to run these.



Learn about Google’s Earth Engine, a platform for scientific analysis and visualization of geospatial datasets at petabyte scales. It provides an easy-to-use, cloud-based processing environment that enables access to a Google-scale computational capability co-located with a massive data catalog. This talk will present an overview of the Earth Engine platform, how it is being used to help solve planetary-scale challenges such as deforestation, disease prediction & drought management, and how you can get started using it in your own research.

When:  Tuesday, February 10th, 2-3pm

Where:  Burt Hall, Room 193

Reception to follow 3-4pm across the street in the CEOAS Admin Building.
