# ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon.withinDistance

Returns true iff the geometries are within a specified distance.

UsageReturns
`MultiPolygon.withinDistance(right, distance, maxError, proj)`Boolean
ArgumentTypeDetails
this: `left`Geometry

The geometry used as the left operand of the operation.

`right`Geometry

The geometry used as the right operand of the operation.

`distance`Float

The distance threshold. If a projection is specified, the distance is in units of that projected coordinate system, otherwise it is in meters.

`maxError`ErrorMargin, default: null

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

`proj`Projection, 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.

## Examples

### Code Editor (JavaScript)

```// 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]]]]);

// Define other inputs.
var inputGeom = ee.Geometry.Point(-122.090, 37.423);

// Apply the withinDistance method to the MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygonWithinDistance = multiPolygon.withinDistance({'right': inputGeom, 'distance': 500, 'maxError': 1});

// Print the result to the console.
print('multiPolygon.withinDistance(...) =', multiPolygonWithinDistance);

// Display relevant geometries on the map.
Map.setCenter(-122.085, 37.422, 15);
