I am using google earth engine code editor to extract some band values at specific point locations. To do so I have loaded my .csv file with point IDs and coordinates into Fusion Tables and the Map looks ok, it displays all the 48455 points.

Points as displayed in Google Fusion Tables

I have then imported the fusion table as a Feature Collection in Earth Engine code editor, which seems to be ok as it says that the collection contains 48455 rows. However, the points located in South East Asia and Oceania are not displayed in the map.

Points as displayed in earth engine code editor. Points in south east Asia and Oceania are missing.

It seems not to be just mapping issue because when I run ReduceRegions to get the band values at the points I get NAs for those located south east asia and Australia. I have double checked the correctness of the coordinates by plotting the points in R and it worked fine. Thus, I guess it's not a projection issue either (they are all WGS84).

Someone can help me?

  • You need to share your fusion table. Set it to "anybody with link can view" so we can reproduce your problem.

  • Sorry, it should be available now. Feb 15, 2018 at 12:19
  • It is very interesting that when I make a copy of the fusion table, the missing points (South East Asia and Oceania) are missing in the fusion table's map too, but the features are still there. Feb 15, 2018 at 18:06
  • Ideed. I have finally solved it using Aart's suggestion (convert the .csv file to .kml and reload it to fusion tables). I still wonder why this worked tho :) Feb 16, 2018 at 11:13

Your fusion table is not shared. I get a "permission denied" error.

You can upload your point map directly into the earth engine where they are stored in your assets. Convert your csv to shapefile and go to Assets -> table upload and select all files (shp,dbf, cpg, qpj, prj, shx).

    this is probably what you want. I converted your csv into a kml. Now you can use the geometry column to set the location.

  • Thanks so much Aart, it worked! I have made a copy of the new ft. How did you convert the .csv. to a .kml? Feb 16, 2018 at 11:11

    There is a "Add Delimited Text Layer" in the layer menu of QGIS. Set the lat and lon (column) from the csv file and save the result as a kml.
