These tools were developed with the original intention to dramatically improve the efficiency of digitising tidewater glacier margins, though there’s undoubtedly many other potential uses for it both in glaciology and other fields, including
the rapid scouting of field/study locations.
Comments, suggestions and questions about the tools are very welcome. I’m hoping that these will be first of several tools developed within Google Earth Engine that will improve the accessibility, efficiency and scales of satellite image
analysis it is possible for both researchers and students to undertake.
The intention is for the tools to be as useful as possible to the community, so please do get in touch if you have ideas for uses or if the tools can be tweaked to better fit your research questions.
All the best,
