GeoJSON Cheat Sheet

What is GeoJSON?

GeoJSON is an open geospatial data interchange format based on JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).

GeoJSON uses World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84), with latitudes and longitudes in positive/negitve decimal degrees. WGS84 is the standard for GPS.

GeoJSON defines JSON objects and a syntax to represent data about geographic features, their properties, and their spatial extents.

The GeoJSON objects include:

  • points (addresses and locations),
  • line strings (streets, highways and boundaries),
  • polygons (countries, provinces, tracts of land), and
  • multi-part collections of these types.

What is JSON?

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight, text-based, language-independent data interchange format.

It was derived from the ECMAScript Programming Language Standard.

JSON defines a small set of formatting rules for the portable representation of structured data.
