Can I use Earth Map offline?
Earth Map does not work offline. The rendering of statistical analyses and layers are executed in the cloud using Google Earth Engine and require an internet connection.
Why are some analyses slow to appear?
Depending on the size of the area and the data set resolution for which you are running statistical analyses, it may take some time (several minutes) for Earth Map / Google Earth Engine to complete the computation. Please be patient and do not re-execute the same analysis or refresh your browser. In case something goes wrong you will receive an error message.
How often are the datasets updated?
The datasets represented in Earth Map are localized in the Google Earth Engine Repository. All the information, including the updates of the datasets can be found in the "ABOUT THIS LAYER" bottom located on the left part of the layer.
What are the spatial resolutions of the datasets?
The datasets represented in Earth Map are localized in the Google Earth Engine Repository. All the information, including the spatial resolutions of the datasets can be found in the "ABOUT THIS LAYER" bottom located on the left part of the layer.
