README.md

This repository is part of the Pelias project. Pelias is an open-source, open-data geocoder originally sponsored by Mapzen. Our official user documentation is here.

Pelias Model

This package stores a definition of our standard data model. It allows for a common format for geographic records across multiple databases and other packages.

Installation

$ npm install pelias-model

NPM

Document

The Document model is a convenient way of modelling POI and admin records so that they are compatible with the Pelias import pipeline.

Using this model ensures that your import script will continue to work even when the underlying schema changes.

var Document = require('pelias-model').Document;

var poi = new Document( 'geoname', 'venue', 1003 )
  .setMeta( 'author', 'peter' )
  .setName( 'default', 'Hackney City Farm' )
  .setName( 'alt', 'Haggerston City Farm' )
  .setNameAlias( 'alt', 'Haggerston Farm' )
  .addParent( 'country', 'Great Britain', '1001', 'GreatB' )
  .addParent( 'neighbourhood', 'Shoreditch', '2002' )
  .setAddress( 'number', '10' )
  .setAddress( 'street', 'pelias place' )
  .setAddressAlias( 'street', 'pelias pl' )
  .addCategory( 'foo' )
  .addCategory( 'bar' )
  .removeCategory( 'foo' )
  .setPopulation(10)
  .setPopularity(3)
  .setCentroid({ lon: 0.5, lat: 50.1 })
  .setPolygon( geojsonObject /* any valid geojson object */ )
  .setBoundingBox( bboxObject /* see tests for bbox syntax */ );

console.log( poi );

Note the _meta property is unenumerable, so you won't see it when you console.log or JSON.stringify the object, don't worry it's still there:

var poi = new Document( 'geoname', 'venue', 1003 );
poi.setMeta( 'author', 'mapzen' );

console.log( poi, poi.getMeta( 'author' ), poi._meta );
