Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Calls a function passing this object as the first argument, and returning itself. Convenient e.g. when debugging:

var c = ee.ImageCollection('foo').aside(print)

.filterDate('2001-01-01', '2002-01-01').aside(print, 'In 2001')

.filterBounds(geom).aside(print, 'In region')

.aside(Map.addLayer, {min: 0, max: 142}, 'Filtered')

.select('a', 'b');

Returns the same object, for chaining.

FeatureCollection.aside(func, var_args)ComputedObject
this: computedobjectComputedObjectThe ComputedObject instance.
funcFunctionThe function to call.
var_argsVarArgsAny extra arguments to pass to the function.

// Get a FeatureCollection of power plants in Belgium. Use "aside" to print the
// collection and display it on the Map.
var fc = ee.FeatureCollection('WRI/GPPD/power_plants')
             .filter('country_lg == "Belgium"')
             .aside(print, 'Power plants in Belgium')
             .aside(Map.centerObject, 7)
             .aside(Map.addLayer, {color: 'blue'}, 'Power plants');
