EarthEngine@SG connects Google Earth Engine users from academia, industry, public sector and non-governmental organisations in Singapore and beyond.

Google Earth Engine (EE) is a powerful cloud-based platform used to process remotely sensed satellite imagery and conduct large-scale land cover mapping on-the-fly. The applications of EE are numerous and cover a range of topics such as urban expansion, deforestation, and mapping of hazards, just to name a few. The user community in Singapore has grown over time and we would like to bring the community together through a one-day virtual symposium.

We are excited to host EarthEngine@SG during the SG Geospatial Festival and allow this event to be a platform for connecting with users of EE from academia, industry as well as public sectors and non-governmental organisations. The one-day virtual event includes a keynote talk, parallel talks on different topics, a networking breakout session and hands-on EE workshops.

This event is organized by Janice Lee (Assistant Professor at the Asian School of the Environment, Earth Observatory of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore),  Jose Don De Alban (Research Associate at Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions, Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore), Sheryl Rose Reyes (International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Student Consortium - ISPRS SC), Sabrina Szeto (Geospatial Consultant at Sabrina Szeto Consulting and Executive Board Member at Women in Geospatial+) and Minerva Singh (Research Fellow, Imperial College London).

Here are some useful links and resources for each of the sessions. The recordings and slides are archived permanently on the ISPRS SC website. 

Planning for follow-up event in next year during the week of 28 Feb to 4 Mar 2022. Likely a one-day in-person event in Singapore where participants give lightning talks and get together for networking and brainstorming activities.
