ee.Geometry.geodesic

If false, edges are straight in the projection. If true, edges are curved to follow the shortest path on the surface of the Earth.

UsageReturns
Geometry.geodesic()Boolean

Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

// Define a Geometry object.
var geometry = ee.Geometry({
  'type': 'Polygon',
  'coordinates':
    [[[-122.081, 37.417],
      [-122.086, 37.421],
      [-122.084, 37.418],
      [-122.089, 37.416]]]
});

// Apply the geodesic method to the Geometry object.
var geometryGeodesic = geometry.geodesic();

// Print the result to the console.
print('geometry.geodesic(...) =', geometryGeodesic);

// Display relevant geometries on the map.
Map.setCenter(-122.085, 37.422, 15);
Map.addLayer(geometry,
             {'color': 'black'},
             'Geometry [black]: geometry');
