I'm new to using Google Earth Engine. I would like to know if data from WMS or WFS services can be added to this platform. I need this information to do a data validation

The information is on the servers:

    Pretty sure the answer is no, although you can upload large "Assets" like geotiffs, shapefiles, etc. to your account.

Earth Engine is not currently able to pull data from external WMS/WFS services.

you can connect WMS to Google Earth Pro*.

Go "Add" > "image Overlay"

and then under the "Refresh" tab, you will find a button "WMS Parameters".

Add a new Server, and then use your address as posted.

*I only have GE Pro, i dont know if this functionality is limited on any other versions.
