What you will learn

Sign up Google Earth Engine

Write JavaScript to analyze spatial data

Access global scale geospatial data on Google cloud platform

Visualize and analyze satellite data

Apply GIS techniques to process and analyze various vector data

Master JavaScript programming language to process Earth observations data


Do you want to learn how to access and analyze geospatial data on the cloud?

Are you interested in writing JavaScript programming to process satellite data?

Do you want to get the next cool GIS technology job which requires new cloud based analytic skills?

Enroll in my new course to master geospatial analysis with Google Earth Engine cloud computing.

I will provide you with hands-on training with example data, sample scripts, and real-world applications.  

By taking this course, you will take your geospatial data science skills to the next level by gaining proficiency in satellite remote sensing and geospatial analysis with Google Earth Engine JavaScript API, a cloud-based Earth observation data visualization analysis by powered by Google.


What makes me qualified to teach you?

I am Dr. Alemayehu Midekisa, PhD. I am a geospatial data scientist, instructor and author. I have over 15 plus years of experience in processing and analyzing real big Earth observation data from various sources including Landsat, MODIS, Sentinel-2, SRTM and other remote sensing products.

In this Introduction to Google Earth Engine course, I will help you get up and running on the Google Earth Engine cloud platform to process and analyze geospatial data In the course, we will introduce you to the Google Earth Engine cloud computing platform. Then we will cover a range of topics on Earth Engine including image visualization, image metadata, mathematical operations, filtering image collections, geometric operations, filtering feature collection, plotting histograms and time series charts.

I have designed the course to teach you JavaScript from scratch and no prior programming experience is necessary. I will also provide you with practical exercises so that you will get hands-on experience.


One of the common problems with learning image processing is the high cost of software. In this course, I entirely use the Google Earth Engine JavaScript API open source cloud platform. Additionally, I will walk you through a step by step video tutorials to process and analyze Earth observation and geospatial data with GEE. All sample data and script will be provided to you as an added bonus throughout the course.

initially i only knew few functions of the GEE but this course was helpful in making me realize that there are great potentials to be derived from GEE. Thanks

The lectures are very superficial with lots of obvious pronunciation mistakes (eg. composite) which shows that the lecturer has done very little effort to augment the quality of the course he provides.

I'm only a few lectures in, but there's already been enough to make this course worthwhile. This isn't the first course I've taken from the instructor. I've also taken so many course from this instructor in the past. Good stuff!

This is very short and sweet videos all over. Explained things very slow and steady voice. Accent is very clear. Videos are very informative and supportive. This helps me to learn things in a enlightening way.

This is a good and well-explained course, I really enjoy it and gained a lot, I recommend this course to everyone who wants to learn about How to program with Google Earth Engine, I'm saying Big Thank you to Dr. Alemayehu Midekisa for your good explanations as usual, "please keep it up".

Just like other courses from Dr. Alemayehu Midekisa, this one is standing on the top for me. The easy explanation and only relevant information needed and required for a student level is what this instructor always includes in his lectures. Exploring Google Earth Engine is an outstanding experience for me. Thums up!

So far I've learned how to sign up and part of lesson two was just reading things off a web page anyone can access and read themselves. I hope this get's insightful. Having finished the course I have to say this was a waste of money given the 15$ I paid. If you had signed up for Earth Engine you'd have enough written resources to do the exact same thing as seen here, for free. If UDEMY charged you more than that... sorry pal.
