Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

// Define a Point object.
var point = ee.Geometry.Point(-122.082, 37.42);

// Apply the geodesic method to the Point object.
var pointGeodesic = point.geodesic();

// Print the result to the console.
print('point.geodesic(...) =', pointGeodesic);

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