When the Earth Engine opens up, it shows a default layer (Landsat 8 Annual Greenest-Pixel TOA Reflectance Composite), with a default band combination. Can I change/add the default layer(s), and the default band combination?

At the moment, it is not possible to load another default layer than the L8 Greenest pixel TOA.

However, if you have a trusted tester account from GEE, you can easily save your workspace as JSON and re-import it at any time. It is just a work around but it is easy to implement:

  • in GEE load the data layers you want, with the band combinations and the time period of your interest
  • go to "Manage Workspace" tab and open the Import/Export option
  • save the JSON text somewhere

Next time you have a window opening in GEE while using Collect Earth, sign in as Trusted Tester, open the "Manage Workspace/Import-Export" and paste your saved JSON inside, all your "default layers" will appear.

Similar to the JSON solution, you could also retrieve the workspace URL from "Manage workspace" > "Share workspace..." and it will address you to the workspace configuration at the moment of producing the URL.

Alternatively, so far only the current workspace session can be saved.
