What is GeoJSON?

GeoJSON is a format for encoding a variety of geographic data structures.

{
  "type": "Feature",
  "geometry": {
    "type": "Point",
    "coordinates": [125.6, 10.1]
  },
  "properties": {
    "name": "Dinagat Islands"
  }
}

See the official documentation for general information.

Use on WeatherAPI

We only use a small subset of the GeoJSON specification. For locationforecast this means the GeoJSON type Feature, and the geometry type Point. Other products may use additional geometry types in the future.

All other data (e.g. weather parameters) in our format are defined under the GeoJSON attribute called properties.
