ee.data.getDownloadId

Get a Download ID.

Returns a download id and token, or null if a callback is specified.

UsageReturns
ee.data.getDownloadId(params, callback)DownloadId
ArgumentTypeDetails
paramsObject

An object containing download options with the following possible values:

  - image: The image to download.

  - name: a base name to use when constructing filenames. Only applicable when format is "ZIPPED_GEO_TIFF" (default) or filePerBand is true. Defaults to the image id (or "download" for computed images) when format is "ZIPPED_GEO_TIFF" or filePerBand is true, otherwise a random character string is generated. Band names are appended when filePerBand is true.

  - bands: a description of the bands to download. Must be an array of band names or an array of dictionaries, each with the following keys

(optional parameters apply only when filePerBand is true):

    + id: the name of the band, a string, required.

    + crs: an optional CRS string defining the band projection.

    + crs_transform: an optional array of 6 numbers specifying an affine transform from the specified CRS, in row-major order:

[xScale, xShearing, xTranslation, yShearing, yScale, yTranslation]

    + dimensions: an optional array of two integers defining the width and height to which the band is cropped.

    + scale: an optional number, specifying the scale in meters of the band; ignored if crs and crs_transform are specified.

  - crs: a default CRS string to use for any bands that do not explicitly specify one.

  - crs_transform: a default affine transform to use for any bands that do not specify one, of the same format as the crs_transform of bands.

  - dimensions: default image cropping dimensions to use for any bands that do not specify them.

  - scale: a default scale to use for any bands that do not specify one; ignored if crs and crs_transform are specified.

  - region: a polygon specifying a region to download; ignored if crs and crs_transform is specified.

  - filePerBand: whether to produce a separate GeoTIFF per band (boolean). Defaults to true. If false, a single GeoTIFF is produced and all band-level transformations will be ignored.

  - format: the download format. One of: "ZIPPED_GEO_TIFF" (GeoTIFF file(s) wrapped in a zip file, default), "GEO_TIFF" (GeoTIFF file),

"NPY" (NumPy binary format). If "GEO_TIFF" or "NPY", filePerBand and all band-level transformations will be ignored. Loading a NumPy output results in a structured array.

  - id: deprecated, use image parameter.

callbackFunction, optional

An optional callback. If not supplied, the call is made synchronously.
