I have a google spreadsheet consisting a feature collection table. Is it possible to import the table in Google Earth Engine? I am a new learner of Earth Engine and was thinking that we have to upload a shapefile to the "Assets" and then import it to the code editor. So, can we just import it directly from a google spreadsheet using the url?


The simplest option at this time is these two steps:

  1. Download from Google Sheets as CSV (File → Download → Comma Separated Values (.csv)).
  2. Upload the CSV file to Google Earth Engine.
  • Yes, it can be done easily. But isn't there any option to directly communicate with the the google sheet from earth engine? Something like this: var feautre=ee.featureColection('www.docs.google.com/spreadsheet') I tried this but didn't work. May 19 at 18:24

    @PadmanabhaChowdhury At this time, there is no direct connection like that. The Earth Engine team is aware that this would be quite useful.
