Leaflet.LayerIndex

Efficient spatial index for Leaflet layers. It works recursively for L.FeatureGroup objects.

Requires the Magnificient RTree.js

Check out the live demo

Usage

On L.Map objects

 
    L.Map.include(L.LayerIndexMixin);
 
    var map = L.map(...);
    ...
    var layer = L.GeoJSON(data).addTo(map);
    map.indexLayer(layer);
 
    // Search visible features for example
    map.on('moveend', function () {
        var shown = map.search(map.getBounds());
        console.log(shown.length + ' objects shown.');
    });
 

Using inherited class

 
    L.IndexedGeoJSON = L.GeoJSON.extend({
        includes: L.LayerIndexMixin,
        
        initialize: function (geojson, options) {
            // Decorate onEachFeature to index layers
            var onEachFeature = function (geojson, layer) {
                this.indexLayer(layer);
                if (this._onEachFeature) this._onEachFeature(geojson, layer);
            };
            this._onEachFeature = options.onEachFeature;
            options.onEachFeature = L.Util.bind(onFeatureParse, this);
            
            // Parent initialization
            L.GeoJSON.prototype.initialize.call(this, geojson, options);
        }
    });
 
 
    var layer = L.IndexedGeoJSON(data).addTo(map);
    
    var aroundToulouse = layer.searchBuffer(L.latLng([43.60, 1.44]), 0.1);
