  - Y-axis: Band value.

  - Series: Band names.

Returns a chart.

Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

// Define a region of pixels to reduce and chart a time series for.
var region = ee.Geometry.BBox(-121.916, 37.130, -121.844, 37.076);

// Define an image collection time series to chart, MODIS vegetation indices
// in this case.
var imgCol = ee.ImageCollection('MODIS/006/MOD13A1')
  .filter(ee.Filter.date('2015-01-01', '2020-01-01'))
  .select(['NDVI', 'EVI']);

// Define the chart and print it to the console.
var chart = ui.Chart.image.series({
  imageCollection: imgCol,
  region: region,
  reducer: ee.Reducer.mean(),
  scale: 500,
  xProperty: 'system:time_start'
})
