2.2 Step 1: Create a Google Account

Diagram showing an overview of the six steps. Step 1 is highlighted.

Terra operates on Google Cloud Platform, so you will need a (free) Google account which will allow you to

  • Access the Terra platform to manage team members, data, and analyses
  • Access Google Cloud Platform to manage billing
  • Receive alerts when spending reaches specified thresholds

If you do not already have a Google account that you would like to use for accessing Terra, create one now.

If you would like to create a Google account that is associated with your non-Gmail, institutional email address, follow these instructions.
