ee.Kernel.add

Adds two kernels (pointwise), after aligning their centers.

UsageReturns
Kernel.add(kernel2, normalize)Kernel
ArgumentTypeDetails
this: kernel1Kernel

The first kernel.

kernel2Kernel

The second kernel.

normalizeBoolean, default: false

Normalize the kernel.

Examples

// Two kernels, they do not need to have the same dimensions.
var kernelA = ee.Kernel.chebyshev({radius: 3});
var kernelB = ee.Kernel.square({radius: 1, normalize: false, magnitude: 100});
print(kernelA, kernelB);
