ICIMOD Conducts First Training on Google Earth Engine in Nepal

Published: Jun 13 2017

Thirty-eight participants—13 of them women—from Nepal and Kenya, convened for a four-day training workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal, on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform. The participants were selected from an open call for applications that received over 250 applications from professionals and students interested in learning more about GEE. The training was organized by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD)/SERVIR-Hindu Kush Himalaya in partnership with Google Earth Engine Outreach. Over the course of the training, participants were provided an introduction to GEE; an overview of the many applications that can be developed using the GEE platform and Google’s public data catalogue, which holds over five petabytes of data; and participated in hands-on team development of their own prototype applications.
