We hear from Rafael Monge and Ivan Gonzalez, two project winners of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) - Google Earth Engine (GEE) program. Our host, NGIS’ Sarah Butler and Yvonne Fong, Data Scientist at EO Data Science chat with the guests about how their projects are tackling important environmental challenges using Earth Observation data in Central and South America.
