#maptimeDavis Workshop: Earth Engine & R for presentation-quality contextual maps
Jan. 12, 2021, 10 a.m. - Jan. 12, 2021, noon
DataLab: Data Science and Informatics
We will combine the power of Earth Engine with the user-friendliness of R to generate beautiful, presentation-quality contextual maps. The workshop will focus on Landsat imagery, but is generalizable to other remote sensing products. Creativity is encouraged! We will use Earth Engine to access, filter, and crop data for download, and then use R to wrangle our dataset and generate beautiful, high-resolution plots.
Attendees will need to have a Google Earth Engine account prior to attending the workshop (may take a few days to process a request for a new account), and have R installed. Attendees will also need to have the following R packages installed: tidyverse, raster, sf, rgdal, RStoolbox.
No experience necessary, but Earth Engine and R exposure are a bonus!
