Exactly the same problem as this: Adding a CSV with GPS coordinates points to Google Earth Engine I have tried the solution to redownload the .csv file as mentioned here but that did not work.

I have a .csv file (comma delimited, UTF-8) with containing coordinates as x and y columns: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Yn4pG3DLJeKnqtfscxWdBNKWQ0faHm_O/view?usp=sharing

To upload the .csv file as an asset I use the following settings in the dialog: enter image description here enter image description here

So I'm only changing the x and y column names.

For some reason the coordinates are not recognized and the x and y columns are displayed as floats:

The table may not have valid geometries

enter image description here

I've tried just about everything (changing csv delimiter, changing column names to latitude/longitude, add a property column etc...) can anyone help me out?

I created a simple script that generates the Javascript definition of the GEE points starting from a csv file:


In particular, given a csv with at least 2 columns containing respectively the latitude and longitude coords, the scripts generates the definition of all the points that can be then inserted in the Code Editor of Google Earth Engine.

I found the issue! If you save the excel file as CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited) it does not work, whereas if you save as CSV (Comma delimited) it does
