ee.Geometry.MultiLineString.symmetricDifference

Returns the symmetric difference between two geometries.
UsageReturns
MultiLineString.symmetricDifference(right, maxError, proj)Geometry
ArgumentTypeDetails
this: leftGeometryThe geometry used as the left operand of the operation.
rightGeometryThe geometry used as the right operand of the operation.
maxErrorErrorMargin, default: nullThe maximum amount of error tolerated when performing any necessary reprojection.
projProjection, default: nullThe 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.

// Define a MultiLineString object.
var multiLineString = ee.Geometry.MultiLineString(
   [[[-122.088, 37.418], [-122.086, 37.422], [-122.082, 37.418]],
    [[-122.087, 37.416], [-122.083, 37.416], [-122.082, 37.419]]]);

// Define other inputs.
var inputGeom = ee.Geometry.BBox(-122.085, 37.415, -122.075, 37.425);

// Apply the symmetricDifference method to the MultiLineString object.
var multiLineStringSymmetricDifference = multiLineString.symmetricDifference({'right': inputGeom, 'maxError': 1});

// Print the result to the console.
print('multiLineString.symmetricDifference(...) =', multiLineStringSymmetricDifference);

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