ee.Geometry.Point.edgesAreGeodesics

Returns true if the geometry edges, if any, are geodesics along a spherical model of the earth; if false, any edges are straight lines in the projection.
UsageReturns

Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

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

// Apply the edgesAreGeodesics method to the Point object.
var pointEdgesAreGeodesics = point.edgesAreGeodesics();

// Print the result to the console.
print('point.edgesAreGeodesics(...) =', pointEdgesAreGeodesics);

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