Land Use/Land Cover mapping and change detection with Machine Learning in Google Earth Engine
I’m very excited that you found my Google Earth En gine course. This course is designed to equip you with the practical knowledge of unsupervised and supervised classification strategies for Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) mapping, which is one of the core skills for any Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing analyst. By the end of the course, you will feel confident and completely understand and apply advanced Geospatial analysis including performing Machine Learning algorithms for land use and land cover mapping and spectral indices calculation and change detection. All this you will be able to carry out on the real (and open) data in Google Earth Engine.
This course is different from other training resources. Each lecture seeks to enhance your GIS and Remote Sensing skills in a demonstrable and easy-to-follow manner and provide you with practically implementable solutions. You’ll be able to start analyzing spatial data for your own projects, and gain appreciation from your future employers with your advances GIS skills and knowledge of the cutting edge LULC techniques.
In the course, you will be able to learn how to carry out all stages of LULC mapping from acquiring satellite data to assessing the accuracy of your map and design a beautiful change map readily available to be inserted in your document or report.
The course is ideal for professionals such as geographers, programmers, social scientists, geologists, and all other experts who need to use LULC maps in their field and would like to learn fundamentals of LULC and change detection in GIS. If you’re planning to undertake a task that requires to use a state of the art classification algorithms for creating, for instance, land cover and land use maps, this course will give you the confidence you need to understand and solve such geospatial problem.
One important part of the course is the practical exercises. You will be given some precise instructions, codes, and datasets to create LULC maps and change maps using the QGIS software and Google Earth Engine.
In this course, I include downloadable practical materials that will teach you:
– How to sign in to Google Earth Engine
– Google Earth Engine interface including its main components and plug-ins
– Learn how to preprocess data on the cloud and calculate spectral indices
– Learn the theory behind machine learning and machine learning in GIS
