International Technical Webinar: Forest data and free open-source solutions for Climate Action

A robust national forest monitoring system (NFMS) enables countries to align their forest policies with up-to-date, reliable, transparent and accessible information. NFMS knowledge and results support countries in their efforts to build confidence in climate actions, and increase the effectiveness and transparency of those actions under the Paris Agreement.

ARSET - Using Google Earth Engine for Land Monitoring Applications

Google Earth Engine (GEE) for remote sensing applications is quickly becoming one of the most utilized tools in the scientific and decision-making community. GEE provides unparalleled access to large-scale data analysis through cloud computing technology. The online interface allows users to access and analyze stores of NASA Earth data without the need for any locally stored data or software. This training will cover the GEE Code Editor, hands-on exercises on change detection, time series analysis, land cover classification, and accuracy assessment of optical imagery.
