Google is planning some exciting activities at the upcoming Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June! Coming up first is our SD-Learning Event, a 2.5 hour technical training on our cutting-edge mapping technologies.
Led by the Google Earth Outreach and Earth Engine teams with nonprofit partners Imazon and Amazonas Sustainable Foundation, this training presents a new set of technology, tools, case studies and partnerships in support of sustainable development. Participants will gain an overview and hands-on technical experience with the full suite of Google mapping tools “from the ground to the cloud”, including Google Earth Engine, Imazon's Deforestation Alert System, Open Data Kit on Android, and Google Maps Engine. They will learn how to leverage these tools to manage and promote sustainable development. Google along with Brazilian nonprofit partner organizations will share best practices and success stories in the use of these tools to build an Amazon Deforestation Alert System powered by Google Earth Engine.
