Google @ Yale: Geotechnology Workshop
February 21 & 22, 2013 -- all day
Yale University (Primarily TEAL Classroom, 17 Hillhouse).
What will you learn?
You will get hands-on with two of Google's new geo tools: Google Maps Engine and Google Earth Engine. These two tools have different, but complementary, uses in research and education:
- Google Maps Engine is a scalable, powerful and secure platform for building and publishing your maps using the power of the Google cloud. Realize the full potential of your geospatial data by securely sharing your maps with anyone over a variety of devices. Learn more at http://www.google.com/enterprise/mapsearth/products/mapsengine.html.
- Google Earth Engine brings together the world's satellite imagery — trillions of scientific measurements dating back almost 40 years — and makes it available online with tools for scientists, independent researchers, and nations to mine this massive warehouse of data to detect changes, map trends and quantify differences on the Earth's surface. Applications include: detecting deforestation, classifying land cover, estimating forest biomass and carbon, and mapping the world’s roadless areas. Learn more at http://earthengine.google.org/
Who should attend?
Researchers and educators who meet one or more of the following should attend!
- Are currently working on GIS or remote sensing projects, or have datasets they want to map.
- Are teaching or developing curricula for GIS or remote sensing courses.
- Have intermediate-to-advanced technical experience in one or more of the following areas:
- Remote sensing
- Web/multimedia development
