Creates a task to export a FeatureCollection to Google Cloud Storage. This function is a wrapper around ee$batch$Export$table$toCloudStorage(...).

ee_table_to_gcs(
  collection,
  description = "myExportTableTask",
  bucket = NULL,
  fileNamePrefix = NULL,
  timePrefix = TRUE,
  fileFormat = NULL,
  selectors = NULL
)

Arguments

collection

The feature collection to be exported.

description

Human-readable name of the task.

bucket

The name of a Cloud Storage bucket for the export.

fileNamePrefix

Cloud Storage object name prefix for the export. Defaults to the name of the task.

timePrefix

Add current date and time as a prefix to files to export.

fileFormat

The output format: "CSV" (default), "GeoJSON", "KML", "KMZ", "SHP", or "TFRecord".

selectors

The list of properties to include in the output, as a list of strings or a comma-separated string. By default, all properties are included. **kwargs: Holds other keyword arguments that may have been deprecated such as 'outputBucket'.

Value

An unstarted Task that exports the table to Google Cloud Storage.
