    Table of Contents


    Jest-GeoJSON extends the Jest unit testing framework with a comprehensive set of matchers tailored to checking GeoJSON object validity and other geodesy attributes. For example:

    const testPoint = {
        type: 'Point',
        coordinates: [25, 10.2]
    test('Object is valid GeoJSON Point Geometry', () => {

    This library DOES NOT create or manipulate GeoJSON. Other tools have done that (and better), such as the venerable Turf.js.

    This project complements, not competes with, those tools.

    Getting Started

    Install as a Dependency

    After installing Jest, run:

    npm install --save-dev jest-geojson

    Configure Jest

    Jest will run custom scripts after its environment loads. You can take advantage of that to load all Jest-GeoJSON matchers automatically.

    To do so, either create a jest.config.js file:

    module.exports = {
        setupFilesAfterEnv: ['jest-geojson/setup/all']

    or add a key to your package.json:

        "name": "myPackageName",
        "jest": {
            "setupFilesAfterEnv": ["jest-geojson/setup/all"]

    Configure Typescript

    If your editor does not recognize the custom Jest-GeoJSON matchers, add a global.d.ts file to your project with:

    import 'jest-geojson'

    Then add a files key in your tsconfig.json:

      "compilerOptions": {
      "files": ["global.d.ts"]


    Jest-GeoJSON organizes matchers by categories. Most correspond to the expected input type passed to expect(). For example, the Coordinates matchers expect a coordinate array, and geometry matchers expect a GeoJSON geometry object.

    Functional matchers assess more generic attributes and qualities and many accept multiple input types.

    Advanced Configuration

    Load Matchers by Category

    You can load matcher subsets if you only need a limited set. Available scipts are:

    • jest-geojson/setup/all
    • jest-geojson/setup/boundingBoxes
    • jest-geojson/setup/coordinates
    • jest-geojson/setup/featureCollections
    • jest-geojson/setup/features
    • jest-geojson/setup/geometries

    For example:

    module.exports = {
        setupFilesAfterEnv: ['jest-geojson/setup/coordinates']

    To load more than one matcher set, pass a comma separated list to the setupFilesAfterEnv array:

    module.exports = {
        setupFilesAfterEnv: [

    Load Specific Matchers

    To load only specific matchers, create a new script and import them either one by one or by group. The matcher object contains each matcher grouped by category.

    // ./my-custom-load-script.js
    const matchers = require('jest-geojson')
    expect.extend({ matchers.coordinates.isValidCoordinate }) // Loads single matcher
    expect.extend({ matchers.boundingBoxes.isValidBoundingBox }) // Loads single matcher
    expect.extend(matchers.geometries) // Loads all matchers in the geometries category

    For another example, see the setup script.

    Import the Core Engine

    The core object contains the functions grouped by category. You can then use these functions elsewhere in your code, or even port Jest-GeoJSON into another testing framework. To import the functions that drive the test matchers:

    const core = require('jest-geojson/core')

    Support Policy

    Minimum Supported Jest Version

    This project requires Jest v24.0.0 or newer.

    Node and Operating System

    The test suite has successfully run on all combinations of:

    • Node Versions Supported
    • Windows Supported Mac Supported Linux Supported

    This project supports Long-Term Support, Current, and Maintenance versions of node. Once a version reaches end of life, the CI scripts will no longer support them. Odd Node versions will only receive support while in a current status.

    Other Node versions and operating systems might support the library, but the tests have not verified other combinations.
