Details

The algorithm is specifically fast and capable of working with polygons of all types: multipolygons (without cascading), polygons with holes, self-intersecting polygons and degenerate polygons with overlapping edges.

Example

Play with it by forking this Codepen

import * as martinez from 'martinez-polygon-clipping';
const gj1 = { "type": "Feature", ..., "geometry": { "type": "Polygon", "coordinates": [ [ [x, y], ... ] ]};
const gj2 = { "type": "Feature", ..., "geometry": { "type": "MultiPolygon", "coordinates": [ [ [ [x, y], ...] ] ]};

const intersection = {
  "type": "Feature",
  "properties": { ... },
  "geometry": {
    "type": "Polygon",
    "coordinates": martinez.intersection(gj1.geometry.coordinates, gj2.geometry.coordinates)
  }
};

API

  • .intersection(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>
  • .union(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>
  • .diff(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>
  • .xor(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>

<Geometry> is GeoJSON 'Polygon' or 'MultiPolygon' coordinates structure. <Operation> is an enum of { INTERSECTION: 0, UNION: 1, DIFFERENCE: 2, XOR: 3 } in case you have to decide programmatically which operation do you need
