In partnership with Google Cloud, Climate Engine’s Enterprise Solution empowers the public sector to deliver on their mandates across a number of critical domains.
Climate Engine helps Google accelerate and scale the implementation of Earth Engine for public sector organizations. We do this to help the public sector deliver on mandates related to sustainability and climate resilience.
Economic and environmental security depends on understanding and responding to change.
Responding to climate threats and building a sustainable future is dependent on the public sector delivering Earth insights to stakeholders. Governments cannot meet the challenge of climate change without doing this, making a scalable geospatial system a core piece of infrastructure.
In partnership with Google, Climate Engine’s Enterprise Solution accelerates public investments in scientific research to help quickly and efficiently deliver critical scientific insights to stakeholders. Climate Engine leverages Google’s world leading geospatial technology to bring research into operational contexts at scale and in formats that are analysis ready for AI/ML applications and decision making systems.
A Paradigm Shift: Algorithms to data, not data to algorithms
Government departments are facing a flood of data challenges. They need to produce insights for an ever increasing number of stakeholders in the context of unprecedented environmental change. And they need to do this while managing exponential growth in data, procurements, technologies, and research.
In collaboration with Google, Climate Engine has been developed to shift the paradigm in how public sector organizations manage, store, and deliver data. By leveraging Google’s advanced cloud, AI/ML and geospatial technologies, Climate Engine allows organizations to focus on delivering on their mandates, not time consuming data wrangling or complex procurements by:
- Federating raw data into one location
- Leveraging Google Earth Engine’s 400+ datasets
- Using rapid data ingest processes for government and commercial data
- Processing data in the cloud
- Delivering insights in analysis ready API
This allows scientists to bring their algorithms to the data and leverage a workflow that ends in an API so they can focus on delivering insights.
An improved pipeline for Earth observation data can help governments better deliver on a wide spectrum of mandates.
Climate Engine works across sectors and disciplines. These include:
Enable future forecasting for flood, drought and wildfire, better manage water resources, and improve disaster preparedness through EO water data products.
Improve yields, more efficiently manage water, and better predict and model agriculture outputs by combining spaceborne data sources and land sensor measurements.
De-risk portfolios through near-term and long-term forecasts and projections, and monitor economic activities for better indicators.
Adapt to climate change through monitoring and forecasting environmental change. Leverage spaceborne data to better understand risk and manage disasters.
Understand risks to critical infrastructure and assets such as hospitals, transportation routes, buildings, and homes, and plan for a climate resilient future.
