Abstract

Arbitrarily large sequences of values pose a problem for JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) [RFC7159] that is well explained in the motivation for JSON text sequences [RFC7464]. The GeoJSON format [RFC7946] faces the same kind of problem. Geographic datasets often run to the tens of thousands or millions of features. The problem is often amplified by the presence of large arrays of coordinates for each of the features.

Abstract

   This document describes the GeoJSON text sequence format and    "application/geo+json-seq" media type.  This format is based on    JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) text sequences and GeoJSON, and it    makes arbitrarily large geographic datasets incrementally parseable    without restricting the form of GeoJSON texts within a sequence.
