The Best Earth Observation Data Science Toolkits

Platforms, Tools and Packages for Geospatial/Earth Observation Data Scientists. In this article, I highlight the best open source tools in the market that are integrated into the data science ecosystem.

The satellite-based earth observation data is increasing at a rapid base, thanks to technological development in remote sensing platforms, and breakthroughs in data collection and storage. Today, we have more than 768 earth observation satellites in orbit, compared with only 150 in 2018.

As a Geospatial or earth observation data scientist, you have a vast array of tools and resources to choose. In this article, I highlight the best open source tools in the market that are integrated into the data science ecosystem.

1. Google Earth Engine (GEE)

Your wish granted. GEE is all in one package. Google Earth Engine(GEE) is by far the complete one in all package for earth observation data scientists. It does offer not only Geospatial data processing and analysis capabilities but also provides ready to use datasets to focus on analysing rather than downloading data.

With GEE, you can perform planetary-scale analysis with freely available satellite images from NASA/USGS (Landsat, MODIS), European Union (Sentinel 1 & 2) and non-satellite or derived products like elevation, climate data and land cover.

With a full-featured development environment in both Javascript and Python APIs, Google Earth Engine (GEE) is an essential arsenal for Earth Observation data scientist/analyst. It also comes with Code Editor (Javascript) where you can run your analysis and visualisation right in the browser.

Furthermore, you can create Machine Learning models right with GEE and can produce full ML models and predictions right in the browser. The python module integrates well with other python packages, and you can run in Jupyter notebooks or Google Colab.

There you go — a complete end-to-end functionality in GEE with terabytes of satellite imagery sources, data processing tools and ML algorithms, right in your browser.

It could not have been better!
