I want to calculate the time series of the NDVI with Sentinel-2 of a specific area of Australia.

I started from this code:

Time series analysis of NDVI using Google Earth Engine

Substituting Landsat with Sentinel and modifying the data extraction start date.


  //Importing image and geometry:
var l8 = ee.ImageCollection("COPERNICUS/S2")
var geometry = //Graigzone
    ee.Geometry.Polygon(
        [[[147.232246, -25.695369],
          [147.230186, -25.654525],
          [147.173195, -25.627907],
          [147.353439, -25.648645],
          [147.347946, -25.686707],
          [147.389145, -25.623573],
          [147.398758, -25.622954],
          [147.398758, -25.682994],
          [147.438583, -25.692894],
          [147.431717, -25.702794],
          [147.408371, -25.699082],
          [147.374039, -25.725684],
          [147.298164, -25.747023],
          [147.275848, -25.75228],
          [147.256622, -25.762793],
          [147.259369, -25.772687],
          [147.384338, -25.835123],
          [147.393265, -25.859841],
          [147.345886, -25.934582],
          [147.288208, -25.931495],
          [147.275848, -25.856752],
          [147.240829, -25.789072],
          [147.23774, -25.763103],
          [147.221947, -25.755372],
          [147.232246, -25.695369]]], null, false);
          
  

//Filtering date, polygon, and cloudiness
    var image = l8.filterDate ('2016-01-01', '2021-07-26')
                .filterBounds (geometry)
                //.filterMetadata ('CLOUD_COVER', 'less_than', 20);

    //NDVI calculation:
    var ndvi_func = function (i) {
      var ndvi = i.normalizedDifference (['B8', 'B4']).rename ('NDVI')
      return i.addBands(ndvi);
    }

    var image_ndvi = image.map(ndvi_func);

    //Calculating year wise NDVI
    var year = ee.List.sequence(2015,2021);
    var year_func = function(y){
      var range = ee.Filter.calendarRange (y, y, 'year');
      return image_ndvi.select('NDVI').filter(range).median().set ('Year', y)
    };
    var yearwise_ndvi = ee.ImageCollection(year.map(year_func));
    print (yearwise_ndvi);
    Map.addLayer (yearwise_ndvi)
    
    //Creating time-series chart:
var chart = ui.Chart.image.series ({
  imageCollection: yearwise_ndvi,
  region: geometry,
  reducer: ee.Reducer.median(),
  scale: 10,
  xProperty: 'Year'
}).setOptions ({title: "NDVI over time",
  hAxis: {title: 'Time of the year', format: 'year'}
});

print(chart);

The Error I get is : Error generating chart: Invalid JSON:

What is wrong with the code?

Maybe because you used median reducer instead of mean. Have you tried using mean and see if it works?

The error you mentioned is about the creating chart part. But i can't find the problem.

This might help you as well. Google Earth Engine Failed to decode JSON

  • No, the median reducer it's not the problem...also with mean reducer it's not working! Thanks for the link, i will take a look! Aug 3, 2021 at 10:43
