Earth’s vital signs: Planetary-scale environmental monitoring with Google Earth Engine
Free and open to the public. Reception from 6-7:00 p.m.
Google Earth Engine was developed to “turn pixels into knowledge” by serving as an accessible public repository for massive amounts of geospatial data and large-scale computation. Scientists and practitioners are now developing Earth Engine-powered applications that map and monitor global environmental change, from surface water to forests to biodiversity to crop yields, in unprecedented detail.
Rebecca Moore is Director of Google Earth and Earth Engine. She also leads Google Earth Outreach, which supports nonprofits, educators and indigenous communities in applying Google’s mapping tools to the world’s most pressing problems. Moore was recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change for Open Science, and she is the recipient of the 2016 Rachel Carson Award from the National Audubon Society.
