ee.ImageCollection.filterBounds

Shortcut to filter a collection by intersection with geometry. Items in the collection with a footprint that fails to intersect the given geometry will be excluded.

This is equivalent to this.filter(ee.Filter.bounds(...)).

Returns the filtered collection.

UsageReturns
ImageCollection.filterBounds(geometry)Collection
ArgumentTypeDetails

// A Sentinel-2 surface reflectance image collection for 3 months in 2021.
var ic = ee.ImageCollection('COPERNICUS/S2_SR')
             .filterDate('2021-07-01', '2021-10-01');

// A point geometry for the peak of Mount Shasta, California, USA.
var geom = ee.Geometry.Point(-122.196, 41.411);
print('Images intersecting point geometry', ic.filterBounds(geom));

// A feature collection of point geometries for mountain peaks.
var fc = ee.FeatureCollection([
  ee.Feature(ee.Geometry.Point(-122.196, 41.411), {mountain: 'Mount Shasta'}),
  ee.Feature(ee.Geometry.Point(-121.697, 45.374), {mountain: 'Mount Hood'})
]);
print('Images intersecting feature collection', ic.filterBounds(fc));
