Remote sensing with satellites, or Earth Observation (EO), is becoming more and more prevalent, with open access to near real-time data. Due to its wide availability, EO data has become indispensable for addressing Earths and societys most pressing problems. Most applications are now being done through cloud-computing because of its many natural advantages, including open-access software, powerful computers, and a broad user community.

Crowley et al. [2023] provide a road map for educating future problem-solvers and users of cloud-based EO. They propose that, in addition to ensuring strong technical fundamentals, the opportunities provided by cloud-based EO should also ensure that ethical considerations and how to engage with the community of users, the public, and stakeholders are taught.
