I have an image which is from type 'ee.Image' and I want to extract its geometry so that:

im_geo = im.geometry();

but the geometry function of 'ee.Image' is DEPRECATED!

Is there another way for it?

That function still works. As far as I can tell, it's deprecated from the ee.Image docs because it extends beyond just images at this point.

var im = ee.ImageCollection("LANDSAT/LC08/C01/T1_SR").first();
print("im", im);

var im_geo = im.geometry();
print("im_geo", im_geo);

For example, you can use Element.geometry() to find the geometry of a FeatureCollection as well:

var LSIB = ee.FeatureCollection("USDOS/LSIB_SIMPLE/2017")
var LSIB_geo = LSIB.geometry();
  • Thanks! So there is probably something wrong in my code... Is there any specific case that it may not work? Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 19:30
  • I haven't run into issues with it, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Sounds like it might be worth asking a new question if you can pinpoint your issue. Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 19:46
