Types and utilities for working with 2d geometry in Golang


orb CI codecov Go Report Card Go Reference

Package orb defines a set of types for working with 2d geo and planar/projected geometric data in Golang. There are a set of sub-packages that use these types to do interesting things. They each provider their own README with extra info.

Interesting features

  • Simple types - allow for natural operations using the make, append, len, [s:e] builtins.
  • GeoJSON - support as part of the geojson sub-package.
  • Mapbox Vector Tile - encoding and decoding as part of the encoding/mvt sub-package.
  • Direct to type from DB query results - by scanning WKB data directly into types.
  • Rich set of sub-packages - including clipping, simplifing, quadtree and more.

Type definitions

type Point [2]float64
type MultiPoint []Point

type LineString []Point
type MultiLineString []LineString

type Ring LineString
type Polygon []Ring
type MultiPolygon []Polygon

type Collection []Geometry

type Bound struct { Min, Max Point }

Defining the types as slices allows them to be accessed in an idiomatic way using Go's built-in functions such at make, append, len and with slice notation like [s:e]. For example:

ls := make(orb.LineString, 0, 100)
ls = append(ls, orb.Point{1, 1})
point := ls[0]

Shared Geometry interface

All of the base types implement the orb.Geometry interface defined as:

type Geometry interface {
	GeoJSONType() string
	Dimensions() int // e.g. 0d, 1d, 2d
	Bound() Bound

This interface is accepted by functions in the sub-packages which then act on the base types correctly. For example:

l := clip.Geometry(bound, geom)

will use the appropriate clipping algorithm depending on if the input is 1d or 2d, e.g. a orb.LineString or a orb.Polygon.

Only a few methods are defined directly on these type, for example Clone, Equal, GeoJSONType. Other operation that depend on geo vs. planar contexts are defined in the respective sub-package. For example:

  • Computing the geo distance between two point:

      p1 := orb.Point{-72.796408, -45.407131}
      p2 := orb.Point{-72.688541, -45.384987}
      geo.Distance(p1, p2)
  • Compute the planar area and centroid of a polygon:

      poly := orb.Polygon{...}
      centroid, area := planar.CentroidArea(poly)


The geojson sub-package implements Marshalling and Unmarshalling of GeoJSON data. Features are defined as:

type Feature struct {
	ID         interface{}  `json:"id,omitempty"`
	Type       string       `json:"type"`
	Geometry   orb.Geometry `json:"geometry"`
	Properties Properties   `json:"properties"`

Defining the geometry as an orb.Geometry interface along with sub-package functions accepting geometries allows them to work together to create easy to follow code. For example, clipping all the geometries in a collection:

fc, err := geojson.UnmarshalFeatureCollection(data)
for _, f := range fc {
	f.Geometry = clip.Geometry(bound, f.Geometry)

Mapbox Vector Tiles

The encoding/mvt sub-package implements Marshalling and Unmarshalling MVT data. This package uses sets of geojson.FeatureCollection to define the layers, keyed by the layer name. For example:

collections := map[string]*geojson.FeatureCollection{}

// Convert to a layers object and project to tile coordinates.
layers := mvt.NewLayers(collections)
layers.ProjectToTile(maptile.New(x, y, z))

// In order to be used as source for MapboxGL geometries need to be clipped
// to max allowed extent. (uncomment next line)
// layers.Clip(mvt.MapboxGLDefaultExtentBound)

// Simplify the geometry now that it's in tile coordinate space.

// Depending on use-case remove empty geometry, those too small to be
// represented in this tile space.
// In this case lines shorter than 1, and areas smaller than 2.
layers.RemoveEmpty(1.0, 2.0)

// encoding using the Mapbox Vector Tile protobuf encoding.
data, err := layers.Marshal() // this data is NOT gzipped.

// Sometimes MVT data is stored and transfered gzip compressed. In that case:
data, err := layers.MarshalGzipped()

Decoding WKB from a database query

Geometries are usually returned from databases in WKB format. The encoding/wkb sub-package offers helpers to "scan" the data into the base types directly. For example:

row := db.QueryRow("SELECT ST_AsBinary(point_column) FROM postgis_table")

var p orb.Point
err := row.Scan(wkb.Scanner(&p))

db.Exec("INSERT INTO table (point_column) VALUES (ST_GeomFromWKB(?))", wkb.Value(p))

Scanning directly from MySQL columns is supported. By default MySQL returns geometry data as WKB but prefixed with a 4 byte SRID. To support this, if the data is not valid WKB, the code will strip the first 4 bytes, the SRID, and try again. This works for most use cases.

List of sub-package utilities

  • clip - clipping geometry to a bounding box
  • encoding/mvt - encoded and decoding from Mapbox Vector Tiles
  • encoding/wkb - well-known binary as well as helpers to decode from the database queries
  • encoding/wkt - well-known text encoding
  • geojson - working with geojson and the types in this package
  • maptile - working with mercator map tiles
  • project - project geometries between geo and planar contexts
  • quadtree - quadtree implementation using the types in this package
  • resample - resample points in a line string geometry
  • simplify - linear geometry simplifications like Douglas-Peucker
  • wkb: simplify byte order code

    wkb: simplify byte order code

    this PR refactors encoding/wkb/* to remove the custom type type byteOrder int and replace it with binary.ByteOrder. it also removes the constants const bigEndian and const littleEndian.

    this actually simplifies the code a fair bit since there is no need to write if conditions based on the desired endianness.

    let me know if this is something you'd consider merging and if there's anything else which needs to be done.

    I noticed a fair amount of code duplication between byteOrderType() & readByteOrderType(), I also considered refactoring those functions but didn't go that far in this PR.

  • Add support for EWKB/EWKT

    Add support for EWKB/EWKT

    Hi! We're relying a lot at work on this package to handle geometries, and it works like a charm, but we have an issue when storing geometries inside postgis. We need to specify an SRID for the geometry, to obtain meaningful results with certain database operations, and we are currently converting back and forth between the geometries defined in go-geom and the geometries of orb, which is not ideal performance-wise. We still want to rely on orb for in-memory management of geometries, since it has lots of useful in-memory operations implemented.

    If it's ok with you I'd like to try and submit a PR to add support for EWKB/EWKT serialization. I'm just not sure on how to structure it, and how to share code between the current WKB/WKT implementation, so I'm open to suggestions on this topic.

  • Panic when reading geojson with null geometries in UnmarshallJSON()

    Panic when reading geojson with null geometries in UnmarshallJSON()

    exit status 2

    This was apparently caused missing geometries in the file (for statistical geographical classifications with no true spatial elements) and subsequently a pointer error when UnmarshallJSON. I fixed this by removing features will missing geometries in Python and resaving the file.

    This scenario may well happen again to other users, especially if other data providers include features without spatial elements. Do you think it wise to put a check in to see if the geometry is present, or provide a specific error message?

    incorrect result from Quadkey()

    As per bing maps, given tile XY coordinates of (3, 5) at level 3, the result should be a string “213”.

    But Quadkey() from orb package for the same tile returns a uint64 of 39. Why are the results different? func (t Tile) Quadkey() uint64

  • Would you be open to changing the signatures in maptile/tilecover ?

    Would you be open to changing the signatures in maptile/tilecover ?

    Specifically, changing the return values from maptile.Set to (maptile.Set, error)

    My concern is that the /maptile/tilecover/polygon.go code triggers a panic if it encounters an invalid geometry and it would be helpful for the package to return an error that I can handle in my application code rather than all the scaffolding necessary to trap and recover from a panic.

    I am happy to do the work to produce a PR but figured I would see whether this was interesting to you, first.

  • Issue when retrieving postgis geometry

    Issue when retrieving postgis geometry

    I've spend a couple of hours trying to figure out what doesn't work with my use-case (postgreSQL, postGIS, go-pg and orb)

    I have a complicated SELECT query (2 joins and 1 pivot) that I will simplify for this thread. The problem occurs during the Scan of a polygon

    p := orb.Polygon{}
    _, err := b.Database.Query(wkb.Scanner(&p), `SELECT ST_AsBinary(jobs.region,'NDR') FROM jobs LIMIT 1`, id)

    The returned error:

              <internal.Error>: {
                  s: "wkb: invalid data",
          to be nil

    I dig in the code and found that the error occurs here: https://github.com/paulmach/orb/blob/5af0ae28533d2d7038e9e103c43ccc6d8d0d05a6/encoding/wkb/wkb.go#L218-L244

    I added some logs to print the actual data and I got this:


    which seems to be a perfect WKB apart from the leading \x. When I use a online service like https://rodic.fr/blog/online-conversion-between-geometric-formats/ to convert the data it gives exactly what I inserted in the database --> POLYGON((0 0,10 0,10 10,0 10,0 0),(1 1,1 2,2 2,2 1,1 1))

    Any ideas ?

  • encoding/mvt: stable marshalling

    encoding/mvt: stable marshalling

    Hi! We've been using the library and are big fans. I've noticed one opportunity to (potentially) improve things. I'm trying to take an MD5 hash of the marshaled bytes to use as a fingerprint that I can compare with what the client sends me to see if they match, and it doesn't work quite right.

    Currently, encode_properties iterates over a map to encode. Since there are no guarantees on iteration order for go maps, the output can differ each time for the same input. In practice, I've found the iteration order to be different almost every time.

    func TestStableMarshalling(t *testing.T) { layers := NewLayers(loadGeoJSON(t, maptile.New(17896, 24449, 16))) values := make(map[string]bool)

    for i := 0; i < 100; i++ {
    	marshal, _ := Marshal(layers)
    	checksum := md5.Sum(marshal)
    	sum := hex.EncodeToString(checksum[:])
    	values[sum] = true
    if len(values) != 1 {
    	t.Errorf("multiple values (%d) for marshalled bytes", len(values))

    } The above test will typically produce 100 different md5 values.

    This change makes encode_properties stable by getting the keys to the map, sorting them, and iterating over them. The benchmark numbers are:

    I'm happy to go whatever route you'd prefer here. I understand you may not want to impact the perf since the stability hasn't mattered up to now. I can perhaps add a separate method like MarshalStable?

    Much appreciated!

    copy the original mvt.Layers for reuse

    Hi there,

    then I unmarshal the file to go object:

    r = map[string]*geojson.FeatureCollection{}
    err = json.Unmarshal(geojsonData, &r)
    layers := mvt.NewLayers(r)

    when serving the tiles the original values of the layers gets mutated, which force me to read and unmarshal the geojson again,

    I tried to copy layers so I don't modify the original layers, but still changing one changes the other.

    How I can copy the layers by value?

  • v0.2(Jan 16, 2021)

    This release has breaking changes involving some GeoJSON edge cases.

    1. Foreign Members in Feature Collections

      Extra attributes in a feature collection object will now be put into featureCollection.ExtraMembers. Similarly, stuff in `ExtraMembers will be marshalled into the feature collection base. The break happens if you were decoding these foreign members using something like

      type MyFeatureCollection struct {
          Title string `json:"title"`

      The above will no longer work in this release and it never supported marshalling. See https://github.com/paulmach/orb/pull/56 for more details.

    2. Features with nil/missing geometry will no longer return an errors

      Previously missing or invalid geometry in a feature collection would return a ErrInvalidGeometry error. However missing geometry is compliant with section 3.2 of the spec. See https://github.com/paulmach/orb/issues/38 and https://github.com/paulmach/orb/pull/58 for more details.

    This release also includes faster unmarshalling for Mapbox Vector Tiles (MVT) see https://github.com/paulmach/orb/pull/57
