The Landsat ETM+ archive was mined to produce a 30 meter water mask of areas of
persistent surface water from 2000 to 2010. Google Earth Engine was employed to examine all viable observations for identifying water.
These maps, created by our launch partners and the Earth Engine team, demonstrate the extensive data archive and processing
capabilities of the Earth Engine platform.

Land Surveyors United is the world's FIRST Global Social Network for geospatial professionals. We have dedicated, geolocated support groups for practically every country, continent and state on earth, for you to utilize for building your personal network. We are all essentially concerned with the same issues, no matter where we are located on earth. However, surveying practices and methods vary depending on the geographic location where we work. If you have noticed similarities and differences between the conditions, laws and practices between two or more areas of the world,discuss it in this forum.
