Google Earth Engine (hereafter called GEE) is a Google’s new platform designed for global-scale data mining, petabyte-scale scientific analysis, and visualization of geospatial datasets comprising satellite imagery (such as Landsat, Sentinel, MODIS), DEM, land use, surface temperature, and many more. The GEE’s public data archive includes historical Earth imagery from the early 1970s onwards, and new imagery is collected every day. The GEE also provides APIs in JavaScript and Python, which enable multi-scalar data processing (see https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fearthengine.google.com&data=01%7C01%7Cjglover%40gsu.edu%7C6552cd60e6e64478d19b08d3f3d2c0f4%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0&sdata=06fV20xetLWaWDDsxGCYosOCfxaQrCZrOtEmPxIzXF8%3D&reserved=0 for the original description and more information). It is available at free of charge for academic and non-profit use. Overall, the GEE has great potential for applications in archaeology and cultural heritage management services. This workshop provides a full-day hands-on GEE tutorial, followed by a discussion with the participants on how they can use this platform for their own research. In the workshop, participants will acquire the basic skills required to explore the GEE platforms (TIMELAPSE, EXPLORER, and CODE EDITOR) and gain insight into its potential applications in archaeology and heritage management.
