Explore Google Earth Engine

Google Earth Engine is an online environment monitoring platform that makes available to the entire world a dynamic digital model of our planet that is updated daily. It stores petabytes of satellite data and allows high-performance tools to analyse and interpret this information that can then be visualised on a map, ranging from rainforest changes in the Amazon to water resources in the Congo.

Congratulations to the Landsat programme on 40 years of continuous earth observation! Since July 1972, the Landsat satellites have gathered images over the entire Earth, creating the most complete record ever assembled. These reveal dynamic changes over time due to human activity and natural processes. Now, Google Earth Engine allows researchers and the public to easily view and analyse this treasure trove of planetary data.

Google Earth Engine is a platform that can be used for monitoring deforestation. Now operational in Brazil, additional tropical countries who need technology to preserve their forests are learning from this model.

Learn more about Google Earth Engine, a new platform that puts an unprecedented amount of satellite imagery and data -- current and historical -- online for the first time and enables global-scale monitoring and measurement of changes in the earth's environment.

Learn how the Surui people in the Amazon are using Google Earth Engine and other Google technologies to protect their forest and find a sustainable future for their territory.

Google Earth Engine is releasing an API and working with partners. Learn about these partnerships with this video.
