In this project, you'll assume the role of a geospatial scientist working with the Montana Forestry Department to analyze the damage in Glacier National Park. You'll first compare Landsat 8 imagery from before and after the fires. Then, you'll change the band combination of the post-fire imagery in order to emphasize burn scars and make a qualitative judgment.

In this project, you’ll build a web mapping application that identifies which region of Samut Songkhram province should be the focus of conservation efforts. You’ll retrieve one image for each decade since the 1970s from the Living Atlas Landsat archive for the entire study area. Once you have the images, you will alter the available multispectral data to enhance vegetation, land, and water.
