A geospatial feature is an individual (or in some cases, a group of) points, lines, or polygons in a dataset or in a tileset. These points, lines, and polygons represent an entity in the real world, such as a landmark, a road, or a park.

Each feature is defined by its geometry and properties:

  • Geometry: The shape and the location of each feature.
  • Properties: This can contain any JSON object. Some examples of common properties, often known as metadata, include title and description.
