Meet Earth Engine
Google Earth Engine combines a multi-petabyte catalog of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities and makes it available for scientists, researchers, and developers to detect changes, map trends, and quantify differences on the Earth's surface.
Explore our interactive timelapse viewer to travel back in time and see how the world has changed over the past thirty-five years. Timelapse is one example of how Earth Engine can help gain insight into petabyte-scale datasets.
The public data archive includes more than thirty years of historical imagery and scientific datasets, updated and expanded daily. It contains over twenty petabytes of geospatial data instantly available for analysis.
Simple, yet powerful API
Use our web-based code editor for fast, interactive algorithm development with instant access to petabytes of data.
Scientific and humanitarian impact
Scientists and non-profits use Earth Engine for remote sensing research, predicting disease outbreaks, natural resource management, and more.
