I want to download Sentinel-1 SAR data for both VV and VH with IW only within a rectangular polygon? I could download with the ROI, but even though ROI is a rectangle, the output to export is a rectangle.

ROI I selected square output I'm getting

The red rectangle is my ROI, but it's taking the extreme coordinates and making a square that encloses the ROI and exporting that output as shown.

I only want the data inside the ROI.

I even tried to use ee.Image.clip. But I couldn't able to comeup with a solution which can download the data. It was going to a large file

var start_date = ee.Date('2019-05-01');
finish_date = ee.Date('2019-06-15');
var orbit = 'ASCENDING';

var collectionS1 = ee.ImageCollection('COPERNICUS/S1_GRD')
    .filter(ee.Filter.listContains('transmitterReceiverPolarisation', 'VV'))
    .filter(ee.Filter.eq('instrumentMode', 'IW'))
    // .filter(ee.Filter.eq('orbitProperties_pass', orbit))
    .filterDate(start_date, finish_date)
    //.filterBounds(polygons);

 // Get the VV collection.
var collectionVV = collectionS1.select('VV');
// Get the VH collection.
var collectionVH = collectionS1.select('VH');

var VV = ee.Image(collectionVV.first().clip(roi_A);  //roi_A is my rectangular roi
var VH = ee.Image(collectionVH.first()); 

// I would like to take VV and VH and stack them and download
var VVVH = VV.addBands(VH)

Export.image.toDrive({
  image: VV,
  description: 'A_ERT',
  scale: 10,
  //region: ROI,
  fileFormat: 'GeoTIFF',
  //formatOptions: {
  //  cloudOptimized: true
  //}
});

I'm getting the following error message.

Error: Export too large: specified 6875185131 pixels (max: 100000000). Specify higher maxPixels value if you intend to export a large area.

    If you want to mask out the pixels that don't fall within the geometry, that would be a different operation, but rasters are always clipped by the minimum bounding rectangle (MBR).

  • So why didn't .clip() work for you?

  • @JonasV. after clipping, I couldn't download it. it's going to a large file. Commented Dec 20, 2020 at 15:12
  • @Vince. Do you have a working code? Commented Dec 20, 2020 at 15:12

you only applied the clip to VV collection but not for VH. Maybe apply it after you stack both band on each other:

var VVVH = VV.addBands(VH).clip(ROI)

Regarding the max pixel error. Try to use: maxPixels:1e13 in your export. Its the most pixels you can use in an export.
