Abstract

GeoJSON is a format for encoding a variety of geographic data structures using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) [RFC7159]. A GeoJSON object may represent a region of space (a Geometry), a spatially bounded entity (a Feature), or a list of Features (a FeatureCollection). GeoJSON supports the following geometry types: Point, LineString, Polygon, MultiPoint, MultiLineString, MultiPolygon, and GeometryCollection. Features in GeoJSON contain a Geometry object and additional properties, and a FeatureCollection contains a list of Features.

                            The GeoJSON Format

Abstract

   GeoJSON is a geospatial data interchange format based on JavaScript    Object Notation (JSON).  It defines several types of JSON objects and    the manner in which they are combined to represent data about    geographic features, their properties, and their spatial extents.    GeoJSON uses a geographic coordinate reference system, World Geodetic    System 1984, and units of decimal degrees.
