What is a geoJSON file?
2 MIN BEGINNER GEOJSON FILE, WHAT IS A GEOJSON FILE
A complete geoJSON dataset contains the following specifications when exporting from Spotzi:
- The_geom* lines contain the data that is needed to draw the points, lines or polygons on the map;
- Below the geom properties there are the attributes that tell more about the data.
The_geom and the_geom_webmercator contains all the data to draw the points, lines or polygons. The type of attribute doesn’t make any difference. Another type of geoJSON may look like this. This type doesn’t contain a geom and geom_webmercator, but contains the coordinates (in case of a point layer) or a string of coordinates (in case of a line or polygon layer).
