"From the Ground to the Cloud: Google mapping tools for conservation of
protected areas and parks"
Google is hosting a 2-day in-depth hands-on workshop to help build the technical capacity of park managers, researchers, and communities. This workshop is a parallel event of the World Parks Congress 2014 in Sydney, Australia; however, you don't have to attend the Congress in order to apply for this workshop. In this workshop, participants will gain technical training on Google mapping software tools “from the ground to the cloud.” Led by the Google Earth Outreach and Earth Engine teams, the workshop will teach participants how to use these tools to raise awareness, reach common understanding, and take action on protected area management and conservation goals. The Internet offers new possibilities for collaboration, transparency, and easy access to and sharing of environmental data. Cloud-computing can support analysis of large global datasets, and methods for storytelling and visualization.
Participants will gain an overview and hands-on experience with:
WHEN: Monday November 10th & Tuesday November 11th
