ee.Geometry.LinearRing.convexHull

Returns the convex hull of the given geometry. The convex hull of a single point is the point itself, the convex hull of collinear points is a line, and the convex hull of everything else is a polygon. Note that a degenerate polygon with all vertices on the same line will result in a line segment.

UsageReturns
LinearRing.convexHull(maxError, proj)Geometry
ArgumentTypeDetails
this: geometryGeometry

Calculates the convex hull of this geometry.

maxErrorErrorMargin, default: null

The maximum amount of error tolerated when performing any necessary reprojection.

projProjection, default: null

The projection in which to perform the operation. If not specified, the operation will be performed in a spherical coordinate system, and linear distances will be in meters on the sphere.

// Define a LinearRing object.
var linearRing = ee.Geometry.LinearRing(
    [[-122.091, 37.420],
     [-122.085, 37.422],
     [-122.080, 37.430]]);

// Apply the convexHull method to the LinearRing object.
var linearRingConvexHull = linearRing.convexHull({'maxError': 1});

// Print the result to the console.
print('linearRing.convexHull(...) =', linearRingConvexHull);

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