FeatureServer

An open source implementation of the GeoServices specification

npm travis Greenkeeper badge

Usage

This is meant to be used as a plugin to Express

Example server

const express = require('express')
const app = express() // set up a basic express server
const FeatureServer = require('featureserver')
const cache = require('cache')

// We only need one handler because FeatureServer.route is going to do all the work
const handler = (req, res) => {
  cache.get(/* some geojson */, (err, data) => {
    if (err) res.status(500).json({error: err.message})
    else FeatureServer.route(req, res, data)
  })
}

// Sets up all of the handled routes to support `GET` and `POST`
const routes = ['/FeatureServer', '/FeatureServer/layers', '/FeatureServer/:layer', '/FeatureServer/:layer/:method']

routes.forEach(route => {
  app.route(route)
  .get(handler)
  .post(handler)
})

API

FeatureServer.route

Pass in an incoming request object, an outgoing response object, a geojson object, and options and this function will route and return a geoservices compliant response

  • Supports: '/FeatureServer', '/FeatureServer/layers', '/FeatureServer/:layer', '/FeatureServer/:layer/:method'
    • Note: only query, info, and generateRenderer are supported methods at this time.
FeatureServer.route(req, res, data, options)
  • data is either a geojson object extended with some additional properties or an object with a layers property which an array of extended geojson objects. These properties are optional and can be used to provide more specific metadata or to shortcut the built in filtering mechanism.

e.g.

{
  type: 'FeatureCollection' // Static
  features: Array, // GeoJSON features
  statistics: Object, // pass statistics to an outStatistics request to or else they will be calculated from geojson features passed in
  metadata: {
    id: number, // The unique layer id.  If supplied for one layer, you should supply for all layers to avoid multiple layers having the same id.
    name: String, // The name of the layer
    description: String, // The description of the layer
    extent: Array, // valid extent array e.g. [[180,90],[-180,-90]]

    maxRecordCount: Number, // the maximum number of features a provider can return at once
    limitExceeded: Boolean, // whether or not the server has limited the features returned
    timeInfo: Object, // describes the time extent and capabilities of the layer,
    transform: Object, // describes a quantization transformation
    renderer: Object, // provider can over-ride default symbology of FeatureServer output with a renderer object. See https://developers.arcgis.com/web-map-specification/objects/simpleRenderer, for object specification.

       alias: String, // how should clients display this field name,
     }
    ]
  },
  capabilities: {
    quantization: Boolean // True if the provider supports quantization
  },

FeatureServer.serverInfo(server)

FeatureServer.layerInfo

Generate version 10.51 Geoservices information about a single layer

FeatureServer.layerInfo(geojson, options)

Note that the layer info is modified with properties metadata and capabilites found at the top-level of the GeoJSON object.

GeoJSON property Layer info result
metadata.id overrides default
metadata.name overrides default
metadata.description overrides default
metadata.geometryType overrides value determined from data
metadata.extent overrides value determined from data
metadata.timeInfo overrides default
metadata.maxRecordCount overrides default (2000)
metadata.displayField overrides default (OBJECTID)
metadata.objectIdField overrides default (OBJECTID)
metadata.hasStaticData overrides default (false)
metadata.renderer overrides default
metadata.defaultVisibility overrides default
metadata.minScale overrides default
metadta.maxScale overrides default
capabilities.extract when set to true, Extract added to capabilites (e.g., capabilities: "Query,Extract")
capabilities.quantization when set to true, supportsCoordinatesQuantization: true

FeatureServer.layers

Generate version 10.51 Geoservices information about one or many layers

Can pass a single geojson object or an array of geojson objects

FeatureServer.layers(geojson, options)

FeatureServer.generateRenderer

Pass in geojson and options, and the function will return a valid generateRenderer object. Two classificationDef classification types are supported, classBreaksDef and uniqueValueDef.

classBreaksDef is used to classify numeric data based on a number of breaks and a statistical method. Features can also be normalized before being classified. uniqueValueDef is used to classify data based on a unique field(s). If classification breaks are not supplied through in statistics, they will be generated using classificationDef options. The output is a generateRenderer object.

classBreaksDef

In addition to class breaks as input statistics: [], the following is an example of all classBreaksDef options that can be passed into the generateRenderer route: '/FeatureServer/:layer/generateRenderer'

e.g.

const options = {
 *'classificationDef': {
   *'type': 'classBreaksDef',
   *'classificationField': '<field1>',
   *'classificationMethod': 'esriClassifyEqualInterval' | 'esriClassifyNaturalBreaks' | 'esriClassifyQuantile' | 'esriClassifyStandardDeviation',
   *'breakCount': 9,
    'normalizationType': 'esriNormalizeByField' | 'esriNormalizeByLog' | 'esriNormalizeByPercentOfTotal',
    'normalizationField': '<field2>' // mandatory if 'normalizationType' === 'esriNormalizeByField'
    'baseSymbol': {
      'type': 'esriSMS',
      'style': 'esriSMSCircle',
      'width': 2
    },
    'colorRamp': {
      'type': 'algorithmic',
      'fromColor': [115,76,0,255],
      'toColor': [255,25,86,255],

      }
    },
    ...
  ]
}
uniqueValueDef

The following is an example of all uniqueValueDef options that can be passed into the generateRenderer route: '/FeatureServer/:layer/generateRenderer'

e.g.

const options = {

   *'uniqueValueFields': ['Genus', '<field2>', '<field3>'],
   *'fieldDelimiter': ', '
    'baseSymbol': {

      'style': 'esriSMSCircle',
      'width': 2
    },
    'colorRamp': {
      'type': 'algorithmic',
      'fromColor': [115,76,0,255],
      'toColor': [255,25,86,255],
