I just signed up for Google Earth Engine and installed the Python API. I am currently facing an issue where outputs from the various API functions do not work as intended, they produce references to the objects in memory instead of producing the outputs mentioned in the documentation. An example of calculating the area of a Polygon is shown below where the area is not outputted.
import ee ee.Initialize() polygon = ee.Geometry.Polygon( [[[-122.092,37.424], [-122.086,37.418], [-122.079,37.425], [-122.085,37.423]]]) polygonArea = polygon.area(maxError=1) polygonArea
Out: <ee.ee_number.Number at Ox1d4d8250130>
