GeoJSONSeq: sequence of GeoJSON features
New in version 2.4.
Driver short name
Driver built-in by default
This driver is built-in by default
This driver implements read/creation support for features encoded individually as GeoJSON Feature objects, separated by newline (LF) (Newline Delimited JSON) or record-separator (RS) characters (RFC 8142 standard: GeoJSON Text Sequences)
Such files are equivalent to a GeoJSON FeatureCollection, but are more friendly for incremental parsing.
The driver automatically reprojects geometries to WGS84 longitude, latitude, if the layer is created with another SRS.
Appending to an existing file is supported since GDAL 3.6
This driver supports the
This driver supports georeferencing
This driver supports virtual I/O operations (/vsimem/, etc.)
The driver accepts three types of sources of data:
Plain text file with GeoJSON data - identified from the file extension .geojsonl or .geojsons
Text passed directly as filename, and encoded as GeoJSON sequences
The URL/filename/text might be prefixed with GeoJSONSeq: to avoid any ambiguity with other drivers.
The following configuration option is available:
OGR_GEOJSON_MAX_OBJ_SIZE=<MBytes>: (GDAL >= 3.0.2) Defaults to
200. size in MBytes of the maximum accepted single feature, or 0 to allow for a unlimited size (GDAL >= 3.5.2).
Layer creation options
RS=[YES/NO]: whether to start records with the RS=0x1E character, so as to be compatible with the RFC 8142 standard. Defaults to NO, unless the filename extension is "geojsons"
COORDINATE_PRECISION=<integer>: Defaults to
7. Maximum number of figures after decimal separator to write in coordinates. "Smart" truncation will occur to remove trailing zeros.
SIGNIFICANT_FIGURES=<integer>: Defaults to
17. Maximum number of significant figures when writing floating-point numbers. If explicitly specified, and
COORDINATE_PRECISIONis not, this will also apply to coordinates.
ID_FIELD=value: Name of the source field that must be written as the 'id' member of Feature objects.
ID_TYPE=[AUTO/String/Integer]: Type of the 'id' member of Feature objects.
WRITE_NON_FINITE_VALUES=[YES/NO]: (GDAL >= 3.8) Defaults to
NO. Whether to write NaN / Infinity values. Such values are not allowed in strict JSon mode, but some JSon parsers (libjson-c >= 0.12 for example) can understand them as they are allowed by ECMAScript.
AUTODETECT_JSON_STRINGS=[YES/NO]: (GDAL >= 3.8) Defaults to
YES. Whether to try to interpret string fields as JSON arrays or objects if they start and end with brackets and braces, even if they do not have their subtype set to JSON.
