shp

Convert shapefiles into geoJson without ogr2ogr/GDAL

node-shp

Node.js shapefile parser in pure JS

##What about shp2json?

Unlike substack's shp2json, this library does not require gdal. Or anything other than fs.

Usage

still in testing stages

var Shp = require('index');
var shpJson = Shp.readFileSync('path/to/shpfile_base_name');
// or
Shp.readFile('path', function(error, data){
    console.log(JSON.stringify(data));
})

TODO

  • Allow to be run from commandline as executable
  • Tests actually compare equality of results
  • Tests for shapefiles with multiple features
  • Separate out loading of file to allow preloading
  • Proper support for multiPolygons, etc
