rtree library for javascript


A non-recursive R-Tree library in pure JavaScript with no dependencies. Fork of Jon-Carlos Rivera's fantastic library which sadly seems not to be maintained. MIT Licensed.

  • Bug fix when deleting points.
  • Common.js module.
  • Updated tests.
  • Factory function for constructor.
  • Method for dealing with GeoJSON.
  • All methods now accept callbacks.
  • Query by bbox instead of rectangle.
  • Submit to NPM.
  • Update examples.
  • add closure
  • add GruntFile
  • fix syntax (make it pass jslint)
  • more modular
  • that bug with deleting
  • RTree ( [ Number max_node_width, Function callback ] )
  • max_node_width : optional : The maximum width of a node before a split is performed1.
  • An empty rTree object.
  • Make a new rTree with a max node width of 10:
  • var myRTree = RTree(10);
  • rTree.insert ( Rectangle3 bounds, Object element)
  • bounds : required : A minimally bounding box for element.
  • element : required : An object to add to the R-Tree.
  • True.
  • Insert a 10x10 object that starts at position 10x10:
  • myRTree.insert({x:10, y:10, w:10, h:10}, myObject);
  • rTree.remove ( Rectangle3 area _[, Object element)
  • area : required : An area to search within.
  • element : optional : An object to remove from the R-Tree. If no object is specified, all elements that touch area are deleted.
  • An array of leafs deleted from the R-Tree.
  • Deletes all object that touch the 10x10 rectangle starting at position 10x10:
  • var myDelCount = myRTree.delete({x:10, y:10, w:10, h:10});
  • Delete only specific object if it touches the 10x10 rectangle starting at position 10x10:
  • var myDelCount = myRTree.delete({x:10, y:10, w:10, h:10}, specific_object);
  • rTree.geoJSON ( Object or Array geoJSON)
  • geoJSON : required : Either an Object representing a GeoJSON feature collection or an Array representing a list of GeoJSON features.
  • rTree.bbox ( Bounds area)
  • area : required : Area to search, this can either be represented by a single parameter bounds array [[x1,y1],[x2,y2]], two parameters representing the southwest and northeast corners [x1,y1],[x2,y2], or 4 parameters of [x1,y1,x2,y2].
  • An array of matched features.
  • Search a 10x10 area that starts at position 10x10 (these are all equivalent):
  • var myObjects1 = myRTree.bbox([[10,10],[20,20]]);
  • var myObjects2 = myRTree.bbox([[10,10],[20,20]]);
  • var myObjects3 = myRTree.bbox([10,10],[20,20]);
  • var myObjects4 = myRTree.bbox([10,10],[20,20]);
  • var myObjects5 = myRTree.bbox(10,10,20,20);
  • var myObjects6 = myRTree.bbox(10,10,20,20);
  • ( Rectangle3 area [, Boolean return node, Array return_array ])
  • area : required : An area to search within.
  • return node : optional : Whether to return the entire node, mainly internal option.
  • return array : optional : An existing array to add the results to, defaults to [], mainly internal option.
  • An array of objects that overlap or touch area.
  • Search a 10x10 area that starts at position 10x10:
  • var myObjects ={x:10, y:10, w:10, h:10});

1 Default max node width is currently 6.

3 A Rectangle is any object with public x, y, w, h properties. The object itself is not saved or used directly but copies are made of its x, y, w, h properties.
