Summary: Google Earth Engine is a cloud-based geospatial processing platform that unites multiple petabytes of publicly accessible imagery and a massive computational infrastructure with a web-based integrated development environment (IDE). Users can harness the unprecedented combination of data and computing resources to conduct complex geospatial analyses on planetary scales.

Speaker: Jessica Walker is a postdoctoral researcher with the USGS Western Geographic Science Center in Tucson, AZ. Her research investigates the recovery of post-wildfire landscapes in Alaska and across the southwestern US using time series of remote sensing imagery
