I am having problems using Google Engine with collect Earth. From some days to now, google Engine is not zooming into the plots as previously (I obtain just a general view of the Earth map). I verified that the version of Collect Earth is updated, and that the advanced properties are correctly selected. I switch between google chrome and firefox but in both the result is the same. I am not sure what happened since it is not only in my computer, I verified that the same problems is happening in my laptop too. Do you have any idea about how could I fix this problem? Thanks Nuria

Hello Nuria,

I think the problem might be related to a bug in Collect Earth that prevents the update of the Javascript functions that allow Collect Earth to zoom into a Google Earth Engine plot.

Could you please try to perform these steps?

  1. Close Collect Earth if it is still running Go to the folder C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\CollectEarth ( attention, the AppData folder is hidden, in order to be able to see it you must enable the view of the hidden folders in windows file explorer : follow this guide )

  2. Open the file earth.properties file that you can find in the Collect Earth folder and make sure that the parameters called gee_js_pickFunction, gee_js_zoom_method and gee_js_zoom_object have no values, they should look like this after you edit them ::

  3. Restart Collect Earth and try again to click on a plot.

Please let me know if this fixes your issue otherwise tell me the exact firefox/chrome version number. I will probably have a fix ready for the updater/installer by the end of the week.

We just released a new version of Collect Earth that should fix this problem once and for all.

Let us know if there are more issues

Google Earth Engine has changed URL and thus Collect Earth has had a bit of a problem.

I you update to the latest version of Collect Earth (1.2.12) then it should work fine again!
