I am working with MODIS-NDVI image collection in Google Earth Engine. Below, you can find a script which is creating a chart of NDVI values over the given period for particular location. I would like to print it as a table or text in Console/Panel, but could not find code for it. Is there anyway to do it?

var point = ee.Geometry.Point([10.455856189782935, 50.440969544991205]);

var image = ee.ImageCollection('MODIS/006/MOD13A1').

var div_ndvi = function(image) {
  var NDVI_0 = image.select("NDVI");
  var NDVI_1 = NDVI_0.divide(10000);
  return image.addBands(NDVI_1);

var withN = image.map(div_ndvi);


var chart = ui.Chart.image.seriesByRegion(withN, point, ee.Reducer.first(), 'NDVI_1', 500);


You probably want the information in a list. You can do that using reduceRegion (to get the actual NDVI value at your geometry), add that as a property to each image and then extract those properties of all images in your collection using aggregate_array

// Make a 'table' in the console
var addNDVIatPoint = withN.map(function(image){
  return image.set(image.reduceRegion(ee.Reducer.first(), point))
// extract as 'table'
var table = ee.List(addNDVIatPoint.aggregate_array('NDVI_1'))
var datesMillis = ee.List(addNDVIatPoint.aggregate_array('system:time_start'))

print(table); print(datesMillis)

link script, where I also added how you could download a CSV table of the list you printed in the console

  • Thanks for solution. It works well. Can you please also assist me on finding command for printing out this list in panel. I have created panel and tried to add the list by writing "panel.add(table)". But, it did not work and I received a message "Only a ui.Widget can be added to a panel.". – Sarvarbek Eltazarov Jan 25 at 16:44

    Try something like this, or use evaluate() when implementing this on larger scripts to make sure your browser does not stop responding: Map.add(ui.Label(table.getInfo())) – Kuik Jan 27 at 12:34
  • thank you for your suggestion. It worked well. But, it prints the data in horizontal axis when it is added to the panel. How can I make it vertically and with dates? – Sarvarbek Eltazarov Jan 29 at 12:51
