Google Earth Engine Series 2 - Active fire mapping using GEE

GDG Cloud Edmonton
Wed, Aug 24, 2022, 5:00 PM (MDT)

84 RSVP'ed

Google Earth Engine (GEE) and the Earth Engine data catalogue provide easy access to active fire products from regional and global fire products. In this session, you will be given an overview of how to access these fire mapping datasets using the Code editor and existing user apps. This presentation will build upon Event 1’s Introduction to GEE and Event’s 3 Introduction to User Apps.

About this event

Fire monitoring across the world benefits from raw satellite imagery and processed fire-mapping datasets. Google Earth Engine supports fire monitoring throughout fire seasons with satellite data from sources like Landsat 8, Sentinel-2, and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and by hosting multiple fire datasets from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) and the Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS).

This session will present chapter A3.1 co-led by Dr. Morgan A Crowley and Dr. Tianjia Liu from the recently submitted open-access text book: “Cloud-based Remote Sensing with Google Earth Engine - Fundamentals and Applications.” From this presentation, you will learn how to access, process, and explore three fire monitoring datasets available in the data catalog. By the end of this presentation, you will learn how to use the Code Editor and user apps created by co-author Dr. Liu to summarize and compare the characteristics of fires, fire seasons, and fire monitoring datasets.
