Timelapse Google Earth Engine

A)Timelapse Google Earth Engine. B)Timelapse Google Earth Engine. In 2013, we released Google Earth Timelapse, our most comprehensive picture of the Earth’s changing surface. This interactive experience enabled people to explore these changes like never before—to watch the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier and the impressive urban expansion of Las Vegas, Nevada. Today, we’re making our largest update to Timelapse yet, with four additional years of imagery, petabytes of new data, and a sharper view of the Earth from 1984 to 2016. We’ve even teamed up again with our friends at TIME to give you an updated take on compelling locations.

C)Leveraging the same techniques we used to improve Google Maps and Google Earth back in June, the new Timelapse reveals a sharper view of our planet, with truer colors and fewer distracting artifacts. A great example of this is San Francisco and Oakland in California:

D)There’s much more to see, including glacial movement in Antarctica, urban growth, forest gain and loss, and infrastructure development:.

E)Using Google Earth Engine, we sifted through about three quadrillion pixels—that’s 3 followed by 15 zeroes— from more than 5,000,000 satellite images for this latest update, we had access to more images from the past, thanks to the Landsat Global Archive Consolidation Program and fresh images from two new satellites, Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2.

F)We took the best of all those pixels to create 33 images of the entire planet, one for each year  we then encoded these new 3.95 terapixel global images into just over 25,000,000 overlapping multi-resolution video tiles. Made interactively explorable by Carnegie Mellon CREATE Lab’s Time Machine library. A technology for creating and viewing zoomable and pannable timelapses over space and time.

G)To view the new Timelapse, head over to the Earth Engine website. You can also view the new annual mosaics in Google Earth’s historical imagery feature on desktop, or spend a mesmerizing 40 minutes watching this YouTube playlist. Happy exploring! Landsat imagery courtesy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and U.S. geological Survey images also contain modified Copernicus Sentinel data 2015- 2016.                                                                                                         earthtopomaps

B)Global Forest Bring the world’s changing forests inside the classroom May 25, 2016.

C)Forests are the mighty lungs of our planet. They absorb carbon dioxide, and emit oxygen on which all people and animals on Earth rely. For the sake of our future, it is critical that all people including the next generation, understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably. Today, Science in the Classroom,Dr. Matt Hansen of the University of Maryland, and Google Earth Engine are presenting Global Forest.  Change Explorer to help engage young people in forest conservation.                              Change Explorer website contains maps that are available for interactive analysis as well as an accompanying activity worksheet.

E)Change Explorer website contains maps that are available for interactive analysis as well as an accompanying activity worksheet. Explorer Tool allows students to quickly visualize trends in forest loss and gain. Compare different countries and ecoregions and apply the forest data to try to predict underlying causes where there is significant change in forest density. Explorer Tool relies on open data that is used by remote sensing and GIS professionals in their work. Global Forest Change Explorer website contains maps that are available for interactive analysis as well as an accompanying activity worksheet.

F)Fly to different parts of the world and compare data.
A number of years ago, Dr. Matt Hansen and a team of researchers at the University of Maryland turned to. Google Earth Engine to map high-resolution global forest cover with Earth Engine’s cloud-based image processing. global forest

 

G)The team mapped global forest loss and gain from 2000 to 2012 at 30-meter resolution for the entire globe. In 2013, the methods and results were published in Science Magazine and online for everyone to explore. These findings are now an important part of the website. Global Forest Watch, which gives governments. And decision makers free access to the data and tools required to monitor and manage their forests.
