I'm busy trying to create a widely applicable reedbed vegetation classifier that could potentially classify any given area within Europe. I already have training data for an area around the Balaton lake in Hungary and the classification is very accurate >99%.

The problem is that the random forest classifier uses a lot of data and time while training. I know that within python there is a way to store a classifier using a "pickling" method, so if you would choose a different area you would not have to retrain your classifier every time. I was wondering if there is any way to do this in JavaScript within the Google Earth Engine?

    I'd love to know if you managed to resolve this. There's a pickle.js implementation apparently link. I'm in a similar situation... – ThrushJacket Feb 28 at 17:48
  • In the end I did not use Pickle, just retrained the classifier each time. But thank you for pointing me on the pickle.js! I will try if this works soon. – Jim Groot Apr 10 at 12:25
