Online conversion between geometric formats – Mathieu Rodic

Online conversion between geometric formats

Here is a simple conversion tool between different text representations for 2D geometry objects.

Supported formats are:

  • WKB, a.k.a. Well-Known Binary, in hexadecimal format
  • WKT, a.k.a. Well-Known Text
  • GeoJSON

A few sample geometries (taken from Wikipedia) are available:


This tool uses the wkx javascript library for parsing.

Have fun!

    • Haven’t thought of it… this program is kind of a draft, so it would need some rework to become a package. Feel free to do so though, I would be happy to contribute!
