Kelvin Fong recently presented a webinar titled “Scaling up Spatial Analyses: Using Google Earth Engine for Satellite Imagery Retrieval, Processing, and Analysis,” described as follows:
Environmental epidemiologists often use spatiotemporal data for exposure assessment (e.g. air pollution, temperature, greenness). Faced with the challenge of processing large datasets, often from different sources, traditional workflows using desktop applications are limited by computational power and memory. Participants will learn to address these analytical bottlenecks using Google Earth Engine, a publicly available cloud-based tool for spatiotemporal data collection, linkage, and analysis. This tool is free, requires only an internet connection and a browser, and makes collaboration and reproducibility convenient.
