    Grunt task for converting KML and GPX files to GeoJSON and TopoJSON

    Build Status Maintainability dependencies Status Built with Grunt

    Getting Started

    This Grunt task runner plugin uses Grunt, toGeoJSON, TopoJSON, Geobuf, and jsdom.

    Please note that the minimum version of Node.js required is 10.13.0, which is the active Long Term Support (LTS) version, starting from the release 4.0.0 of this plugin.

    If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

    npm install grunt-togeojson --save-dev

    Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


    The "togeojson" task


    In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named togeojson to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

    Configure the files list as described in the multi task section of the Grunt documentation.

      togeojson: {
        maps: {
          files: {
            // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.


    Conversion will use the same basename of the source file for the destination file.


    Type: String

    Default value: 'auto'

    Possible values: 'auto', 'kml', 'gpx'

    The default value ('auto') will determine the type based on the input file extension, namely checking if it is .gpx or not.


    Type: String

    Default value: 'geojson'

    Possible values: 'geojson', 'topojson'

    Using 'topojson' will disable options.compress.


    Type: Boolean

    Default value: false

    Possible values: true, false

    Compress the resulting GeoJSON with Geobuf. Please note that TopoJSON is not supported to be compressed via Geobuf.


    Type: Function

    Default value: null

    Parameters: src (source file path), dest (destination file path), options.output

    Returns: String

    The function should return a string of the new destination path for the file

    Linting is done with ESLint and can be executed with npm run lint. There should be no errors appearing after any JavaScript file changes.
