// Define a MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygon = ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon(

       [-122.086, 37.418],

       [-122.085, 37.423]]],
     [[[-122.081, 37.417],
       [-122.086, 37.421],
       [-122.089, 37.416]]]]);

// Apply the geodesic method to the MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygonGeodesic = multiPolygon.geodesic();

// Print the result to the console.
print('multiPolygon.geodesic(...) =', multiPolygonGeodesic);

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