I used JRC image collection which is an image of global surface water from 1984-2015.

var gsw = ee.Image('JRC/GSW1_0/GlobalSurfaceWater');

Is there anyone who previously worked with that database?

The problem is I cannot filter date from the image.
Is it possible to filterDate from the image. Or filterDaate is only applicable for imageCollection.

I am new in earth engine, pls help me out.
