A collection of GIS functions. Handles conversions to and from well-known test (WKT), well-known binary (WKB), and GeoJSON for the following geometries:

  • Point
  • PointZ
  • PointM
  • PointZM
  • LineString
  • LineStringZ
  • Polygon
  • PolygonZ
  • MultiPoint
  • MultiPointZ
  • MuliLineString
  • MuliLineStringZ
  • MultiPolygon
  • MultiPolygonZ
  • GeometryCollection

Note: If you are looking for the Postgrex PostGIS extension, check out geo_postgis.

Note: If you are looking to do geospatial calculations in memory with Geo's structs, check out topo.

defp deps do
    {:geo, "~> 3.4"}


Encode and decode WKT and EWKT:

iex(1)> {:ok, point} = Geo.WKT.decode("POINT(30 -90)")
%Geo.Point{ coordinates: {30, -90}, srid: nil}

iex(2)> Geo.WKT.encode!(point)
"POINT(30 -90)"

iex(3)> point = Geo.WKT.decode!("SRID=4326;POINT(30 -90)")
%Geo.Point{coordinates: {30, -90}, srid: 4326}

Encode and decode WKB and EWKB:

iex(1)> {:ok, point} = Geo.WKB.decode("0101000000000000000000F03F000000000000F03F")
%Geo.Point{ coordinates: {1.0, 1.0}, srid: nil }

iex(2)> Geo.WKB.encode!(point)

iex(3)> point = Geo.WKB.decode!("0101000020E61000009EFB613A637B4240CF2C0950D3735EC0")
%Geo.Point{ coordinates: {36.9639657, -121.8097725}, srid: 4326 }

iex(4)> Geo.WKB.encode!(point)

Encode and decode GeoJSON:

Geo only encodes and decodes maps shaped as GeoJSON. JSON encoding and decoding must be done before and after.

# Examples using Jason as the JSON parser

iex(1)> Geo.JSON.encode(point)
{:ok, %{ "type" => "Point", "coordinates" => [100.0, 0.0] }}

iex(2)> point = Jason.decode!("{\"type\": \"Point\", \"coordinates\": [100.0, 0.0] }") |> Geo.JSON.decode
%Geo.Point{ coordinates: {100.0, 0.0}, srid: nil }

iex(3)> Geo.JSON.encode!(point) |> Jason.encode!
