Google Earth Engine (GEE) in the Environmental field: applications and feedback

On The June 21, 2022

2pm - 4pm
Webinar in French and English

Open seminar/webinar about Google Earth Engine.

This open seminar aims to provide feedback on the use of Google Earth Engine in the environmental field. Based on examples of practical use cases in France and abroad, we will address different topics, from the local to the large scale, in order to demonstrate the interest of GEE, the results that emerge from it and the possible limits of this increasingly used tool.

Audience: the H2O'Lyon community (researchers, doctoral students and students), members of EVS (Digital Spatialities & Geomatics and Socio-Ecosystems workshops), H2O'Lyon partners and all interested people working on water and the environment.

The webinar is in French with a live translation into English.
Registration is free and compulsory
