turf - A modular geospatial engine written in JavaScript

  •    Javascript

Turf is a JavaScript library for spatial analysis. It includes traditional spatial operations, helper functions for creating GeoJSON data, and data classification and statistics tools. Turf can be added to your website as a client-side plugin, or you can run Turf server-side with Node.js (see below).Download the minified file, and include it in a script tag. This will expose a global variable named turf.

supercluster - A crazy fast geospatial point clustering library for browsers and Node.

  •    Javascript

A very fast JavaScript library for geospatial point clustering for browsers and Node.Loads an array of GeoJSON Feature objects. Each feature's geometry must be a GeoJSON Point. Once loaded, index is immutable.

geojson-google-maps - A simple utility to convert GeoJSON objects to Google Maps vector objects (Marker, Polyline, Polygon)

  •    Javascript

Google Maps now has proper support for GeoJSON, so you should probably use that instead. GeoJSON is used to create Google Maps API v3 vectors (Marker, Polyline, Polygon) from GeoJSON objects (Point, LineString, Polygon, MultiPoint, MultiLineString, MultiPolygon, Feature, GeometryCollection, FeatureCollection). Specifically, I'm translating some GeoJSON types to arrays of Google Maps vectors as there aren't really Google Maps equivalents of MultiPoint, MultiLineString, etc.

PostGIS - Spatial and Geographic objects for PostgreSQL

  •    C

PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL. PostGIS adds extra types (geometry, geography, raster and others) to the PostgreSQL database. It also adds functions, operators, and index enhancements that apply to these spatial types.

GeoMesa - Suite of tools for working with big geo-spatial data in a distributed fashion

  •    Scala

GeoMesa is an open-source, distributed, spatio-temporal database built on a number of distributed cloud data storage systems, including Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra, and Kafka. Leveraging a highly parallelized indexing strategy, GeoMesa aims to provide as much of the spatial querying and data manipulation to Accumulo as PostGIS does to Postgres.

magellan - Geo Spatial Data Analytics on Spark

  •    Scala

Magellan is a distributed execution engine for geospatial analytics on big data. It is implemented on top of Apache Spark and deeply leverages modern database techniques like efficient data layout, code generation and query optimization in order to optimize geospatial queries. The application developer writes standard sql or data frame queries to evaluate geometric expressions while the execution engine takes care of efficiently laying data out in memory during query processing, picking the right query plan, optimizing the query execution with cheap and efficient spatial indices while presenting a declarative abstraction to the developer.

flatbush - A very fast static spatial index for 2D points and rectangles in JavaScript

  •    Javascript

A really fast static spatial index for 2D points and rectangles in JavaScript. An efficient implementation of the packed Hilbert R-tree algorithm. Enables fast spatial queries on a very large number of objects (e.g. millions), which is very useful in maps, data visualizations and computational geometry algorithms.

The primary vector of distribution of CGAL are sources tarballs, released twice a year, announced on the web site of CGAL. The sources distributed that way can be built using the CGAL installation manual.

Geolib - Growing library to provide some basic geo functions

  •    Javascript

Library to provide basic geospatial operations like distance calculation, conversion of decimal coordinates to sexagesimal and vice versa, etc. Takes 2 or 4 arguments. First 2 arguments must be objects that each have latitude and longitude properties (e.g. {latitude: 52.518611, longitude: 13.408056}). Coordinates can be in sexagesimal or decimal format. 3rd argument is accuracy (in meters). So a calculated distance of 1248 meters with an accuracy of 100 is returned as 1200 (accuracy 10 = 1250 etc.). 4th argument is precision in sub-meters (1 is meter presicion, 2 is decimeters, 3 is centimeters, etc).

geo - S2 geometry library in Go

  •    Go

This is a library for manipulating geometric shapes. Unlike many geometry libraries, S2 is primarily designed to work with spherical geometry, i.e., shapes drawn on a sphere rather than on a planar 2D map. (In fact, the name S2 is derived from the mathematical notation for the unit sphere.) This makes it especially suitable for working with geographic data.Basic representations of angles, intervals, latitude-longitude points, unit 3D vectors, and conversions among them.
