FeatureServer

DEPRECATED - now migrated to a package in the Koop monorepo. Update any npm usage to @koopjs/featureserver.

No Maintenance Intended npm travis Greenkeeper badge

An open source implementation of the GeoServices specification

Usage

This is meant to be used as a plugin to Express

Example server

const express = require('express')
const app = express() // set up a basic express server
const FeatureServer = require('featureserver')
const cache = require('cache')

// We only need one handler because FeatureServer.route is going to do all the work
const handler = (req, res) => {
  cache.get(/* some geojson */, (err, data) => {
    if (err) res.status(500).json({error: err.message})
    else FeatureServer.route(req, res, data)
  })
}

// Sets up all of the handled routes to support `GET` and `POST`
const routes = ['/FeatureServer', '/FeatureServer/layers', '/FeatureServer/:layer', '/FeatureServer/:layer/:method']

routes.forEach(route => {
  app.route(route)
  .get(handler)
  .post(handler)
})

Setting defaults at runtime

FeatureServer allows several defaults to be set at runtime via Express's app.locals method. Specifically, you will need to set:

app.locals.config = {
  featureServer: {
    // define default here
  }
}

If you are using FeatureServer as part of a Koop instance, the equivalent of Express's app.locals is koop.server.locals.

The follow properties can be set at runtime with the noted method:

app.locals.config = {
  featureServer: {
    currentVersion: 11.01, // defaults to 10.51
    fullVersion: '11.0.1', // defaults to '10.5.1'
    serviceDescription: 'default service description',
    description: 'default layer description'
  }
}

API

FeatureServer.route

Pass in an incoming request object, an outgoing response object, a geojson object, and options and this function will route and return a geoservices compliant response

  • Supports: '/FeatureServer', '/FeatureServer/layers', '/FeatureServer/:layer', '/FeatureServer/:layer/:method'
    • Note: only query, info, and generateRenderer are supported methods at this time.
FeatureServer.route(req, res, data, options)
  • data is either a geojson object extended with some additional properties or an object with a layers property which an array of extended geojson objects. These properties are optional and can be used to provide more specific metadata or to shortcut the built in filtering mechanism.

e.g.

{
  type: 'FeatureCollection' // Static
  features: Array, // GeoJSON features
  statistics: Object, // pass statistics to an outStatistics request to or else they will be calculated from geojson features passed in
  metadata: {
    id: number, // The unique layer id.  If supplied for one layer, you should supply for all layers to avoid multiple layers having the same id.

       alias: String, // how should clients display this field name,
     }
    ]
  },
  capabilities: {
    quantization: Boolean // True if the provider supports quantization
  },
  filtersApplied: {

  • options is an object that dictates method actions. See FeatureServer.query and FeatureServer.generateRenderer for more details.

FeatureServer.query

Pass in geojson and options (a valid geoservices query object), and the function will perform the query and return a valid geoservices query object. The in addition to input statistics: {}, following is an example of all query options that can be passed into the query route: '/FeatureServer/:layer/query'

}

FeatureServer.layers

Generate version 10.51 Geoservices information about one or many layers

Can pass a single geojson object or an array of geojson objects

FeatureServer.layers(geojson, options)

FeatureServer.generateRenderer

Pass in geojson and options, and the function will return a valid generateRenderer object. Two classificationDef classification types are supported, classBreaksDef and uniqueValueDef.

classBreaksDef is used to classify numeric data based on a number of breaks and a statistical method. Features can also be normalized before being classified. uniqueValueDef is used to classify data based on a unique field(s). If classification breaks are not supplied through in statistics, they will be generated using classificationDef options. The output is a generateRenderer object.

classBreaksDef

In addition to class breaks as input statistics: [], the following is an example of all classBreaksDef options that can be passed into the generateRenderer route: '/FeatureServer/:layer/generateRenderer'

e.g.

const options = {
 *'classificationDef': {
   *'type': 'classBreaksDef',
   *'classificationField': '<field1>',
   *'classificationMethod': 'esriClassifyEqualInterval' | 'esriClassifyNaturalBreaks' | 'esriClassifyQuantile' | 'esriClassifyStandardDeviation',
   *'breakCount': 9,
    'normalizationType': 'esriNormalizeByField' | 'esriNormalizeByLog' | 'esriNormalizeByPercentOfTotal',
    'normalizationField': '<field2>' // mandatory if 'normalizationType' === 'esriNormalizeByField'
    'baseSymbol': {
      'type': 'esriSMS',
      'style': 'esriSMSCircle',

    },
    'colorRamp': {
      'type': 'algorithmic',

      }
    },
    ...
  ]
}
uniqueValueDef

The following is an example of all uniqueValueDef options that can be passed into the generateRenderer route: '/FeatureServer/:layer/generateRenderer'

e.g.

const options = {

   *'type': 'uniqueValueDef',
   *'uniqueValueFields': ['Genus', '<field2>', '<field3>'],
   *'fieldDelimiter': ', '
    'baseSymbol': {

FeatureServer.authenticate(res, auth, ssl = false)
  • auth is the result of a successful authentication attempt that returns a token and expiration time
  • ssl is a boolean flag indicating if token should always be passed back via HTTPS. Defaults to false

e.g.,

const auth = {

    "details": ["Invalid username or password."]
  }
}

FeatureServer.queryRelatedRecords

Pass in geojson and options, and the function will return a valid queryRelatedRecords object. Required attributes within options are objectIds and relationshipId.

The geojson should be in the special FeatureCollection of FeatureCollections format to show the relationship between requested Features within the layer/table and the referenced relatinoship's features. e.g.

  const geojson = {
    "type": "FeatureCollection",
    "features": [ // Array of FeatureCollections by objectId with the related records as features
      {
        "type": "FeatureCollection",
        "properties": {
          "OBJECTID": 37
        },
        "features": [
          {
            "type": "Feature",
            "geometry": {...},
            "properties": {...}
          }
        ]
      } 
    ]
  }
  
  const options = {
    objectIds: "37, 462", // comma separated string of object ids within the layer to get related records 
    relationshipId: 4, // relationship Id of the server manged relationship of the layer, see FeatureServer.layerInfo
  }
