Welcome to Cloud-Based Remote Sensing with Google Earth Engine: Fundamentals and Applications
This book is the product of more than a year of effort from more than 100 individuals, working in concert to provide this free resource for learning how to use this exciting technology for the public good.
The book includes work from undergraduates, master’s students, PhD students, postdocs, assistant professors, associate professors, and independent consultants.
About the Book
The book is broadly organized into two sections:
The first half, Fundamentals, is a set of 31 labs designed to take you from being a complete Earth Engine novice to being a quite advanced user.
The second half, Applications, presents you with a tour of the world of Earth Engine across 24 chapters, showing how it is used in a very wide variety of settings that rely on remote-sensing data.
We encourage you to try out these labs! You can start at the very beginning, or go to any other section you like. Each chapter can be done independently of the previous ones.
