#maptimeDavis Mapping Surface Water Change with Google Earth Engine

greatsaltlakeIn this special 3 hour #maptimeDavis session, Ani Ghosh will teach attendees how to use Google Earth Engine for spatial analysis questions related to mapping surface water. Google Earth Engine code editor uses Earth Engine JavaScript API to access various datasets, perform spatial analysis and data visualization in your browser.
