Google Earth Engine for burned areas
Google Earth Engine ( GEE ) is a cloud platform for processing satellite imageries.
Examples of GEE
A great example of using this servic is Global Forest Watch. The main task of this service are interactive maps of deforestation and reforestation. I really advise you to look up on this resources if you does not heart about them already.
Project with GEE
Now, I want to describe my practical experience using GEE. This is related with my master project. Topic of the project is “Determination of burning area in Arkhangelsk region (Russia)”. The Arkhangelsk region covers half million km². Creating a cloudless composite covering the whole region is not a simple task and very time consuming if it is done manually: You will spend more time on downloading images and picking up images in the composite.
