Google’s Earth Engine platform has provided thousands of scientists with access to remote sensing data and complex spatial analysis. As the platform becomes more popular, access to datasets created by its users is also increasing.

The Earth Engine Data Catalog lets users search and discover Earth observation public datasets. The collection includes standard Earth science raster datasets as well as derivative products. Dataset representation includes climate and weather data, digital elevation models and other terrain data, land cover, cropland, and satellite imagery.

Each dataset in the catalog on the overview page has a thumbnail visualizing the dataset as well as tags that users can click on filter out similarly tagged datasets by country or topic.

The menu bar at the top of the catalog also lets users browse datasets by tags or see satellite data collections from Landsat, MODIS, and Sentinel satellites.
