This week’s episode is brought to you from Costa Rica, Colombia and Perth, Australia! We hear from Rafael Monge and Ivan Gonzalez, two project winners of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) - Google Earth Engine (GEE) program. Our host, NGIS’ Sarah Butler and Yvonne Fong, Data Scientist at EO Data Science chat with the guests about how their projects are tackling important environmental challenges using Earth Observation data in Central and South America. 

From developing an early warning system to provide alerts of deforestation in Costa Rica, to generating an Ecological Integrity Index in Colombia—if you love seeing mapping tools make a positive impact, then this episode is for you.
