Building Pathways for Open Science Education using NASA datasets

Binder Build Status


Here we will create a hypothetical scientific use case: A user wants to use the cloud to analyze change in landcover over a certain region in the Amazon river basin over a period of 20 years. The goal of this tutorial then is to introduce users to working with NASA satellite imagery and utilizing Amazon Web Services' Open Data program. Through a series of standardized modules, the user is shown an end-to-end workflow for working with satellite imagery. The modules will teach users how to utilize geoscientific Python tools, visualize the data and utilize a parallel computation platform on the cloud (i.e. the Pangeo Platform).


The contents of this repository consists of a series of Jupyter Notebooks and can be viewed on an open source, free computational platform like Binder. To view the contents of this repo, click the launch binder icon above.


We encourage users to have basic knowledge of Python and Git. The Software Carpentry education materials is a great place to start.
