After training the kmeans model, how can i obtain the number of classes of the model? i've tried with get(), getInfo() and doesnt work.

enter image description here


Value that must to be extracted in "//var to_print_2 = clusterer.get('nClusters')"

// STEP 1: Import image we wish to classify
var l8 = ee.ImageCollection('LANDSAT/LC08/C01/T1')

// Remove the clouds
var cloud_free = ee.Algorithms.Landsat.simpleComposite({
  collection: l8.filterDate('2018-01-01', '2018-12-31'),
  asFloat: true

// STEP 2: Draw your box which you will sample from!  
// Make the training dataset.
var training = cloud_free.sample({
  region: geometry,
  scale: 30,
  numPixels: 5000

// Step 3: Create the clusterer and train it, play around with
// number of classes
var clusterer = ee.Clusterer.wekaKMeans(3).train(training);

print('clusterer',clusterer instanceof ee.ComputedObject);

var to_print = clusterer.getInfo();


print(typeof clusterer);

var clusterer_list = ee.List(clusterer);


print(typeof clusterer_list);

//var to_print_2 = clusterer.get('nClusters');


//var to_print_3 = clusterer.Filter.filterMetadata('nClusters','equals',3);


// Step 4: Classify our image
var classified = cloud_free.cluster(clusterer);
var cluster_1 = classified.eq(0);

// Display
Map.setCenter(-122.31040963183364, 37.782065864682096, 11)
Map.addLayer(classified.randomVisualizer(), {}, 'clusters');
  • Can you provide a working example for us? Follow the guidelines of StackExchange, and you'll more likely get a suitable answer! – Jobbo90 Dec 8 '19 at 10:42

    Assuming your edits are sufficient to get this question on-topic again I'll already post an suggestion here. It's a bit of dirty work around, don't know if ee.Clusterer objects are directly accessable, but this could work: "var clusters = ee.FeatureCollection(training.cluster(clusterer, "cluster")) print(clusters.limit(5))" "var to_print3 = clusters.reduceColumns(ee.Reducer.countDistinct(), ["cluster"]) print(to_print3);" – Jobbo90 Dec 9 '19 at 7:48

    I must be misunderstanding something here. Don't you specify the number of classes you want at this point: ee.Clusterer.wekaKMeans(3) – Daniel Dec 9 '19 at 20:23
  • Yes, you're right, but in other cases, like using "ee.Clusterer.wekaCobweb(0.1,0.01,23).train(training)" or generation an iteration over wekaKMeans, i need to obtain the value from the ee.ComputedObject. – R. Márquez Dec 9 '19 at 20:33
