Abstract
In this clinic we will explore how to use the new cloud-based remote sensing platform from Google. Our hands-on clinic will teach you the basics of loading and visualizing data in Earth Engine, sorting through data, and creating different types of composite images. These techniques are a good starting point for more detailed investigations that monitor changes on earth’s surface. Prerequisites:
1) Bring your own laptop.
2) Chrome installed on your system: It will work with Firefox but has issues.
3) An active Google account - Register for an account with Google Earth Engine (https://earthengine.google.com/signup/)
