Google Earth Engine Unveiled

Google Earth Engine is a new tool to give scientists, communities, and environmental activists with better access and understanding of climate change. Google unveiled the latest Labs project during the United Nations COP 16 conference today.

This new platform brings online for the first time an "unprecedented amount of satellite imagery and data" - the complete archive of more than 25 years of historical satellite imagery. This archive is on the terabyte scale, and few organizations have the storage or computing power to handle it. Therefore much of this information has up til now gone unused.
