GeoJSON Utilities for JavaScript

Here you will find some functions to help you manipulate and work with GeoJSON objects.

Some algorithms adapted from bjwbell/canvas-geolib

How to use!

Load up in a browser OR npm install geojson-utils

var gju = require('geojson-utils');

You now have an object named gju that contains all of the helper functions.

Remember, GeoJSON coordinates are ordered [x,y] or [longitude,latitude] to comply with the Open Geospatial Consortium's recommendation!

Line intersections

gju.linesIntersect({ "type": "LineString", "coordinates": [[0, 2], [5, 2]] },
                 { "type": "LineString", "coordinates": [[3, 0], [3, 4], [4,4], [4,0]] })
// [{"type":"Point","coordinates":[2,3]},{"type":"Point","coordinates":[2,4]}]

gju.linesIntersect({ "type": "LineString", "coordinates": [[0, 2], [5, 2]] },
                 { "type": "LineString", "coordinates": [[0, 0], [5, 0]] })
// false

Point in polygon

gju.pointInPolygon({"type":"Point","coordinates":[3,3]},
                 {"type":"Polygon", "coordinates":[[[0,0],[6,0],[6,6],[0,6]]]})
// [{"type":"Point","coordinates":[3,3]}]
gju.pointInPolygon({"type":"Point","coordinates":[-1,-1]},
                 {"type":"Polygon", "coordinates":[[[0,0],[6,0],[6,6],[0,6]]]})
// false

Radius filtering

If you retrieve a bunch of results from a bounding box query (common with R-tree geo DBs), but you want to filter the rectangular result set by circular radius:

// get the center of the original bounding box
var center = gju.rectangleCentroid({
  "type": "Polygon",
  "coordinates": [[[-122.677, 45.523], [-122.675, 45.524]]]
}),
// radius (in meters)
radius = 100;

for (var i in geometryObjectsWithinBBox) {
  if (gju.geometryWithinRadius(geometryObjectsWithinBBox[i], center, radius)) {
    // ... do stuff with objects inside the circle
  }
}

Distance between two points

Uses the Haversine distance formula to calculate the distance between two points on the Earth's curved surface (as the crow flies, no hills!). Returns the distance in meters.

gju.pointDistance({type: 'Point', coordinates:[-122.67738461494446, 45.52319466622903]},
                  {type: 'Point', coordinates:[-122.67652630805969, 45.52319466622903]})
// 66.86677669313518

and much much more!
