The application of satellite-derived datasets and geospatial analysis techniques in ecology and conservation has grown substantially over the last decade. With the emergence of cloud computing platforms that facilitate big data analysis, researchers, resource managers, and remote sensing enthusiasts are now able to interrogate petabyte-scale datasets with ease. Owing to new server-based infrastructure built by Google, anyone with an internet connection and a basic computer can conduct sophisticated spatial analyses. Via online lectures, hands-on practicals, and discussion sessions, this short course will teach you the foundations of applying Google Earth Engine to answer a range of ecological and conservation questions.
