ee.Classifier.smileNaiveBayes

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.
Creates an empty Naive Bayes classifier. This classifier assumes that the feature vector consists of positive integers, and negative inputs are discarded.

UsageReturns
ee.Classifier.smileNaiveBayes(lambda)Classifier
ArgumentTypeDetails
lambdaFloat, default: 0.000001A smoothing lambda. Used to avoid assigning zero probability to classes not seen during training, instead using lambda / (lambda * nFeatures).

// A Sentinel-2 surface reflectance image, reflectance bands selected,
// serves as the source for training and prediction in this contrived example.
