ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon.edgesAreGeodesics

Returns true if the geometry edges, if any, are geodesics along a spherical model of the earth; if false, any edges are straight lines in the projection.

UsageReturns

Examples

// Define a MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygon = ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon(
    [[[[-122.092, 37.424],
       [-122.086, 37.418],
       [-122.079, 37.425],
       [-122.085, 37.423]]],
     [[[-122.081, 37.417],
       [-122.086, 37.421],
       [-122.089, 37.416]]]]);

// Apply the edgesAreGeodesics method to the MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygonEdgesAreGeodesics = multiPolygon.edgesAreGeodesics();

// Print the result to the console.
print('multiPolygon.edgesAreGeodesics(...) =', multiPolygonEdgesAreGeodesics);

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