Spatial Analaysis in Leaflet using Turf.js – Buffers

This video explains the basics of Turf.js. Turf.js is a spatial analysis library for JavaScript. You can use Turf.js in web mapping applications to create buffers, intersect and union polygons, dissolve on attributes, perform spatial joins, and much more.

Turf.js uses GeoJSON as inputs to its methods and so it is compatable with virtually all web mapping API’s. It allows you to perform spatial analysis right in the browser, with no need for server calls.

In this video I demonstrate how to install Turf.js into a web mapping application and how to use it to buffer a feature class from a leaflet web map.

This video is actually lecture #55 from a course on leaflet programming that I am creating that will be available on Udemy June 15, 2017. I currently have a course on Web Programming for GIS Applications that serves as a pre-requisite to the course on leaflet programming if you are new to web GIS.

Enjoy!
