I uploaded a map which I created of miombo woodland and added it to the Hansen gfc map layer with the idea being to export my map to my drive merged with gfc layers however I keep getting this error:

Error: Image.clipToBoundsAndScale, argument 'input': Invalid type. 
Expected type: Image<unknown bands>. Actual type: FeatureCollection. (Error code: 3)

This is my code:

var miombo_woodland = ee.FeatureCollection("users/mafuruse8097/miombo_woodland");
Map. addLayer(table);
var areaCover = treeCover.multiply(ee.Image.pixelArea())

var areaLoss = loss.gt(0).multiply(ee.Image.pixelArea()).multiply(treeCover)

var areaGain = gain.gt(0).multiply(ee.Image.pixelArea()).multiply(treeCover)
var table = table.filter(ee.Filter.or());
// Sum the values of loss pixels.
var statsLoss = areaLoss.reduceRegions({
  reducer: ee.Reducer.sum(),
  collection: table,
  scale: 10

// Sum the values of gain pixels.
var statsGain = areaGain.reduceRegions({
  reducer: ee.Reducer.sum(),
  collection: table,
  scale: 10}); 

// Export the image, specifying the CRS, transform, and region.
  image: table,
  description: 'miombo_woodland',
  scale: 10,
  region: table

The error tell you the answer. You use Export.image.toDrive but pass it a FeatureCollection instead of an Image.

Try Export.table.toDrive instead:


Creates a batch task to export a FeatureCollection as a table to Drive.
