convert CSV files to GeoJSON

csv2geojson

Converts CSV and TSV files into GeoJSON data suitable for maps..

npm install -g csv2geojson
csv2geojson geodata.csv > geodata.geojson
➟ csv2geojson
Usage: csv2geojson -lat [string] -lon [string] -delimiter [string] -crs [string] FILE
 
Options:
  --lat        the name of the latitude column
  --lon        the name of the longitude column
  --delimiter  the type of delimiter             [default: ","]
  --crs        the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) of the
               coordinates in the GeoJSON
npm install --save csv2geojson
var csv2geojson = require('csv2geojson');
 
var geoJson = csv2geojson.csv2geojson(csvString, function(errdata) {
    // err has any parsing errors 
    // data is the data. 
});

For usage with browserify, follow the same technique as for node, but remember to get brfs as well so that dsv is correctly compiled.

csv2geojson.csv2geojson(csvString, {
    latfield: 'LATFIELDNAME',
    lonfield: 'LONFIELDNAME',
    delimiter: ','
}, function(errdata) {
});

Parse a CSV file and derive a GeoJSON object from it. Err is non-falsy if latitude and longitude values cannot be detected or if there are invalid rows in the file. Delimiter can be ',' for CSV or '\t' for TSV or '|' and other delimiters.

Delimiter can also be auto, and it will try , \t | ; and choose the 'best'.

csv2geojson.dsv(delimiter).parse(dsvString);

The dsv library for barebones DSV parsing.

csv2geojson.auto(dsvString);

Automatically choose a delimiter to parse a dsv string with, and do it.

csv2geojson.toPolygon(gj);
csv2geojson.toLine(gj);

Given a GeoJSON file consisting of points, derive one consisting of a polygon or line that has the coordinates of those points, in the order given.

wget https://raw.github.com/tmcw/csv2geojson/gh-pages/csv2geojson.js

Looks for fields like /^Lat/i.

Includes part of d3js for CSV parsing.

  • topojson supports joining data in CSV
  • gdal supports specific CSV structures to and from other data formats

This is what powers the CSV/TSV import of geojson.io.
