A curated list of awesome tools, tutorials, code, helpful projects, links, stuff about Earth Observation and Geospatial stuff!
This list was started based on #scenefromabove podcast lunchtime discussions
I have written a blog post about how this repo came into being. It includes a video of a talk I gave about it AND a podcast episode devoted to it. http://www.acgeospatial.co.uk/awesome-earthobservation-code/
Please note that this is not offically an awesome list (yet). Please help me to get it there by contributing and commenting. guidelines
Update March 2022 Still keeping an eye on updating - if you find a dead link, or new one please help us maintain. We now have over 550 links/resources! If you find a resource missing let me know and I will add, I accept PR's. Added section on Planetary Computer, COG and STAC.
Annotations are based on the headers - where available - on the github accounts
Alastair Graham @ajggeoger and Andrew Cutts @map_andrew come together to present an informal podcast @eoscenefrom looking at the world of modern remote sensing and EO.
Fuelled by their passion for all things raster and geospatial, the #scenefromabove podcast aims to be a mix of news, opinion, discussion and interviews.

Earth Observation Introduction
If you are not familiar with Earth Observation then these links may help set context before you start using data. I didn't initially aim at including links like these but if you are not familiar with Earth Observation then some good resources to get you going may help prior to diving into code.
- Earth Observation Text books - Earth Observation: Data, Processing and Applications is an Australian Earth Observation (EO) community undertaking to describe EO data, processing and applications in an Australian context and includes a wide range of local case studies to demonstrate Australia’s increasing usage of EO data.
- ESA newcomers guide - The aim of this guide is to help non-experts in providing a starting point in the decision process for selecting an appropriate Earth Observation (EO) solution.
- The state of satellites - The satellite systems we use to capture, analyze, and distribute data about the Earth are improving every day, creating bold new opportunities for impact in global development.

Segmentation of roads is important to map-based applications and is used for finding distances or shortest routes between two places.

- Handling and analysing vector and raster data cubes with R - Edzer Pebesma (Institute for Geoinformatics, University of Münster) Summary: vector and raster data cubes include vector and raster data as special cases, but extend this to vector time series, OD matrices, multi-band raster data, multi-band raster time series, multi-attribute vector or raster time series, and more general to array data where one ore more dimensions are associated with space and/or with time. Examples come from pretty much all areas dealing with spatiotemporal data. This tutorial will go through a large number of examples to illustrate this idea, mostly focusing on the packages stars and sf and those supporting their classes (like tmap, mapview, gstat, ggplot2).

A footnote on awesome
There are many awesome lists relating to 'Geo'. I use that term as widely as possible. This list is not meant to replace these lists. Earth Observation is still way behind the GIS world in terms of audience, reach, number of users etc. Things are changing though, by bringing these links together I hope you can see that there has been so much progress in the last 5 years. I do hope these links are helpful espcially to those who are new to Earth Observation, but also to people like me who with several years of experience think they may have seen it all - we haven't and there is still so much to learn. Earth Observation is not just an academic 'thing' or a basemap anymore, it forms the basis for a growing and diverse business environment. Lets embrace this.
Finally, I wanted to acknowledge a couple of awesome Earth Observation lists that you may list to check out:
