mapnik-omnivore

Node module that returns metadata of spatial files. Version format follows Semantic Version

Build Status Coverage Status

Currently supports the following file types:

  • geojson
  • topojson
  • kml
  • gpx
  • tif
  • vrt : raster files listed in the VRT file must be in the same directory as the VRT file
  • csv : must be valid geo CSV, and can be in the form of csv, txt, or tsv
  • shp : In order to set the projection, the .prj file must be in the same directory and have the same name as the .shp file

Javascript Usage

var mapnikOmnivore = require('@mapbox/mapnik-omnivore'),
    path = require('path');

var file = path.resolve('test/data/zip/world_merc/world_merc.shp');

mapnikOmnivore.digest(file, function(err, metadata){
	if (err) return callback(err);
	else {
		console.log('Metadata returned!');
		console.log(metadata);
	}
});

mapnikOmnivore.digest(filepath, callback)

  • filepath required
  • callback (err, metadata)
