I am trying to create a series of images with the best image per year using Landsat 7 from 2000-2017 around the legal Amazon (using RBG bands 1-3). The code I have so far pulls up over 70,000 images over the period. It seems like I should be looping through images in each year and finding the least cloudy image, but I know you're not supposed to write loops in GGE.
I'm really new to this platform so I may be missing something obvious!
The end goal is to create a timelapse that I will overlay with my own dataset. The code below is what I have so far, and I have no idea how to proceed from here:
// create polygon around legal amazon var Amaz = ee.Geometry.Polygon([[-43.0, -18.0], [-69.0, -18.0], [-69.0,5.0], [-43.0, 5.0]]); Map.addLayer(Amaz) //dates of interest var start = ee.Date('2000-01-01'); var end = ee.Date('2018-01-01'); // create image collection var Amazon_images = ee.ImageCollection('LANDSAT/LE07/C01/T1_SR') .filterBounds(Amaz) .filterDate(start, end) .sort('CLOUD_COVER', false); // Get number of images var count = Amazon_images.size(); print('size of collection Amazon_images', count);
