The Earth Engine API is composed of objects and methods. Objects represent data types such as raster images, vector features, numbers, and strings. Each of these objects belongs to a specific class, and each class has a strict set of functions available to it.
Objects and methods are combined in workflow scripts and sent to Earth Engine servers for processing. Learn about common object classes and their methods by clicking on the following cards to see example procedures.
