                           The GeoJSON Format
                        draft-butler-geojson-03

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.
   This document recommends a single coordinate reference system based
   on WGS 84.  Other coordinate reference systems are not recommended.

1.  Introduction

   GeoJSON is a format for encoding data about geographic features using
   JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) [RFC7159].  The format is concerned
   with features in the broadest sense; any thing with qualities that
   are bounded in geographical space may be a feature whether it is a
   physical structure or not.  The concepts in GeoJSON are not new; they
   are derived from pre-existing open geographic information system
   standards (for COM, SQL, and XML) and have been streamlined to better
   suit web application development using JSON.

   GeoJSON comprises the seven concrete geometry types defined in the
   OpenGIS Simple Features Implementation Specification for SQL [SFSQL]:
   0-dimensional Point and MultiPoint; 1-dimensional curve LineString
   and MultiLineString; 2-dimensional surface Polygon and MultiPolygon;
   and the heterogeneous GeometryCollection.  GeoJSON representations of
   instances of these geometry types are analogous to the well-known
   binary (WKB) and text (WKT) representations described in that same
   specification.

   GeoJSON also comprises the types Feature and FeatureCollection.
   Feature objects in GeoJSON contain a geometry object with one of the
   above geometry types and additional properties.  A FeatureCollection
   object contains an array of feature objects.  This structure is
   analogous to that of the Web Feature Service (WFS) response to
   GetFeatures requests specified in [WFSv1] or to a KML Folder of
   Placemarks [KMLv2.2].  Some implementations of the WFS specification
   also provide GeoJSON formatted responses to GetFeature requests, but
   there is no particular service model or feature type ontology implied
   in the GeoJSON format specification.

   Since its initial publication in 2008 [GeoJSON], the GeoJSON format
   specification has steadily grown in popularity.  It is widely used in
   JavaScript web mapping libraries, JSON-based document databases, and
   web APIs.

1.1.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and

   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   [RFC2119].

1.2.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The ordering of the members of any JSON object defined in this
   document MUST be considered irrelevant, as specified by [RFC7159].

   Some examples use the combination of a JavaScript single line comment
   (//) followed by an ellipsis (...) as placeholder notation for
   content deemed irrelevant by the authors.  These placeholders must of
   course be deleted or otherwise replaced, before attempting to
   validate the corresponding JSON code example.

   Whitespace is used in the examples inside this document to help
   illustrate the data structures, but is not required.  Unquoted
   whitespace is not significant in JSON.

1.3.  Definitions

   o  JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), and the terms object, name,
      value, array, number, true, false, and null are to be interpreted
      as defined in [RFC7159].

   o  Inside this document the term "geometry type" refers to the seven
      case-sensitive strings: "Point", "MultiPoint", "LineString",
      "MultiLineString", "Polygon", "MultiPolygon", and
      "GeometryCollection".

   o  As another shorthand notation, the term "GeoJSON types" refers to
      the nine case-sensitive strings "Feature", "FeatureCollection" and
      the geometry types listed above.

1.4.  Example

   A GeoJSON feature collection:

2.  GeoJSON Object

   GeoJSON always consists of a single object.  This object (referred to
   as the GeoJSON object below) represents a geometry, feature, or
   collection of features.

   o  The GeoJSON object MUST have a member with the name "type".  The
      value of the member MUST be one of the GeoJSON types.

   o  The GeoJSON object MAY have any number of other members.

   o  A GeoJSON object MAY have a "bbox" member, the value of which MUST
      be a bounding box array (see 4.  Bounding Boxes).

2.1.  Geometry Object

   A geometry object is a GeoJSON object where the "type" value is one
   of the geometry types.  A GeoJSON geometry object of any type other
   than "GeometryCollection" MUST have a member with the name
   "coordinates".  The value of the coordinates member is always an
   array.  The structure of the elements in this array is determined by
   the type of geometry.  GeoJSON processors MAY interpret geometry
   objects with empty coordinates arrays as null objects.

2.1.1.  Position

   A position is the fundamental geometry construct.  The "coordinates"
   member of a geometry object is composed of either:

   o  one position (in the case of a Point geometry),

   o  an array of positions (LineString or MultiPoint geometries),

   o  an array of arrays of positions (Polygons, MultiLineStrings),

   o  or a multidimensional array of positions (MultiPolygon).

   A position is represented by an array of numbers.  There MUST be two
   or more elements.  The first two elements will be longitude and
   latitude, or easting and northing, precisely in that order and using
   decimal numbers.  Altitude or elevation MAY be included as an
   optional third element.

   Additional position elements MAY be included but MUST follow the
   three specified above and MAY be ignored by software.  Interpretation
   and meaning of additional elements is beyond the scope of this
   specification.

Internet-Draft                   GeoJSON                        May 2014


   Examples of positions and geometries are provided in "Appendix A.
   Geometry Examples".

2.1.2.  Point

   For type "Point", the "coordinates" member MUST be a single position.

2.1.3.  MultiPoint

   For type "MultiPoint", the "coordinates" member MUST be an array of
   positions.

2.1.4.  LineString

   For type "LineString", the "coordinates" member MUST be an array of
   two or more positions.

2.1.5.  MultiLineString

   For type "MultiLineString", the "coordinates" member MUST be an array
   of LineString coordinate arrays.

2.1.6.  Polygon

   To specify a constraint specific to polygons, it is useful to
   introduce the concept of a linear ring:

   o  A linear ring is a closed LineString with 4 or more positions.

   o  The first and last positions are equivalent (they represent
      equivalent points).

   o  A linear ring is the boundary of a surface or the boundary of a
      hole in a surface.

   Though a linear ring is not explicitly represented as a GeoJSON
   geometry type, it leads to a canonical formulation of the Polygon
   geometry type definition as follows:

   o  For type "Polygon", the "coordinates" member MUST be an array of
      linear ring coordinate arrays.

   o  For Polygons with more than one of these rings, the first MUST be
      the exterior ring and any others MUST be interior rings.  The
      exterior ring bounds the surface and the interiors rings (if
      present) bound holes within the surface.

Internet-Draft                   GeoJSON                        May 2014


2.1.7.  MultiPolygon

   For type "MultiPolygon", the "coordinates" member MUST be an array of
   Polygon coordinate arrays.

2.1.8.  Geometry Collection

   A GeoJSON object with type "GeometryCollection" is a geometry object
   which represents a collection of geometry objects.  A geometry
   collection MUST have a member with the name "geometries".  The value
   corresponding to "geometries" is an array.  Each element in this
   array is a GeoJSON geometry object.

2.2.  Feature Object

   A GeoJSON object with the type "Feature" is a feature object.

   o  A feature object MUST have a member with the name "geometry".  The
      value of the geometry member SHALL be either a geometry object as
      defined above or, in the the case that the feature is unlocated, a
      JSON null value.

   o  A feature object MUST have a member with the name "properties".
      The value of the properties member is an object (any JSON object
      or a JSON null value).

   o  If a feature has a commonly used identifier, that identifier
      SHOULD be included as a member of the feature object with the name
      "id" and the value of this member is either a JSON string or
      number.

2.3.  Feature Collection Object

   A GeoJSON object with the type "FeatureCollection" is a feature
   collection object.  An object of type "FeatureCollection" MUST have a
   member with the name "features".  The value corresponding to
   "features" is an array.  Each element in the array is a feature
   object as defined above.

3.  Coordinate Reference System Object

   The coordinate reference system (CRS) of a GeoJSON object is
   determined by its OPTIONAL "crs" member (referred to as the CRS
   object below).  If an object has no crs member, then its parent or
   grandparent object's crs member SHALL be acquired.  If no crs member
   can be so acquired, the default CRS SHALL apply to the GeoJSON
   object.




Butler, et al.          Expires November 22, 2014               [Page 8]


Internet-Draft                   GeoJSON                        May 2014


   The default coordinate reference system for all GeoJSON objects SHALL
   be a geographic coordinate reference system, using the [WGS84] datum,
   and with longitude and latitude units of decimal degrees.  This
   coordinate reference system is equivalent to the OGC's
   urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC::CRS84 [OGCURN].  An OPTIONAL third position
   element SHALL be the height in meters above the WGS 84 reference
   ellipsoid.  For widest interoperability, GeoJSON data SHOULD use this
   default coordinate reference system and omit CRS objects.

   If an application demands a different coordinate reference system,
   the following specifications shall be followed:

   o  CRS SHOULD be defined as highly in GeoJSON object hierarchy as
      possible, ideally in the FeatureCollection, and SHOULD NOT be
      repeated or overridden in child objects.

   o  The value of a member named "crs" is a JSON object (referred to as
      the CRS object below) or JSON null.  If the value of CRS is null,
      no CRS can be assumed.

   o  A non-null CRS object has two mandatory members: "type" and
      "properties".

   o  The value of the type member indicates the type of CRS object.

   o  The value of the properties member must be an object.

   o  The presence of a CRS object SHALL NOT change the ordering of
      coordinates specified in section 2.1.1.

3.1.  Named CRS

   A CRS object may indicate a coordinate reference system by name.  In
   this case, the value of its "type" member must be the string "name".
   The value of its "properties" member must be an object containing a
   "name" member.  The value of that "name" member must be a string
   identifying a coordinate reference system.  OGC CRS URNs such as
   "urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC::CRS84" are RECOMMENDED over legacy identifiers
   such as "EPSG:4326".

   "crs": {
       "type": "name",
       "properties": {
           "name": "urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC::CRS84"
       }
   }

3.2.  Linked CRS

   A CRS object may link to CRS parameters on the Web. In this case, the
   value of its "type" member must be the string "link", and the value
   of its "properties" member must be a Link object.

   A link object has one required member: "href", and one optional
   member: "type".  The value of the required "href" member must be a
   dereferenceable URI.  The value of the optional "type" member must be
   a string that hints at the format used to represent CRS parameters at
   the provided URI.  Suggested values are: "proj4", "ogcwkt",
   "esriwkt", but others can be used::

   "crs": {
       "type": "link",
       "properties": {
           "href": "http://example.com/crs/42",
           "type": "proj4"
       }
   }

   Relative links may be used to direct processors to CRS parameters in
   an auxiliary file:

   "crs": {
       "type": "link",

4.  Bounding Box

   A GeoJSON object MAY have a member named "bbox" to include
   information on the coordinate range for its geometries, features, or
   feature collections.  The value of the bbox member MUST be an array
   of length 2*n where n is the number of dimensions represented in the
   contained geometries, with the lowest values for all axes followed by
   the highest values.  The axes order of a bbox follows the axes order
   of geometries.

   Example of a bbox member on a feature:

Internet-Draft                   GeoJSON                        May 2014


   {
       "type": "Feature",
       "bbox": [-180.0, -90.0, 180.0, 90.0],
       "geometry": {
           "type": "Polygon",
           "coordinates": [
               [
                   [-180.0, 10.0],
                   [20.0, 90.0],
                   [180.0, -5.0],
                   [-30.0, -90.0]
               ]
           ]
       }
       //...
   }

   Example of a bbox member on a feature collection:

   {
       "type": "FeatureCollection",
       "bbox": [100.0, 0.0, 105.0, 1.0],
       "features": [
       //...
       ]
   }

5.  Security Considerations

   GeoJSON shares security issues common to all JSON content types.  See
   [RFC7159] Section 12 for additional information.  GeoJSON does not
   provide executable content.

   As with other geographic data formats, e.g., [KMLv2.2], providing
   details about the locations of sensitive persons, animals, habitats,
   and facilities can expose them to unauthorized tracking or injury.
   GeoJSON does not provide privacy or integrity services; if sensitive
   data requires privacy or integrity protection the service must be
   provided externally.

6.  Interoperability Considerations

   There is a difference of opinion among geographic data formats over
   whether latitude or longitude come first in a pair of numbers.
   Longitude comes first in GeoJSON coordinates as it does in [KMLv2.2].

Appendix A.  Geometry Examples

   Each of the examples below represents a valid and complete GeoJSON
   object.

A.1.  Points

   Point coordinates are in x, y order (easting, northing for projected
   coordinates, longitude, latitude for geographic coordinates):

     {
         "type": "Point",
         "coordinates": [100.0, 0.0]
     }

A.2.  LineStrings

   Coordinates of LineString are an array of positions (see "2.1.1.
   Position"):
