For the visualization challenge, suppose I wanted to work with an area in Nigeria. Could I use Landsat data and also open-source data from Nigeria as well?
[This question was asked by a participant during the live tutorial on January 5. The answer is being reposted here for those who were not able to attend.]
Yes you can! You are required to use at least one publicly available Earth observation dataset collected by a U.S. government agency (like Landsat). Beyond that, you can use any additional datasets you’d like as long as they are freely and publicly available. Just make sure you have the correct rights and permissions to share any datasets you use.
See the problem description page for more details.
