GeoJSON to GeoTIFF – Vector to Raster Conversion

GeoJSON is an open standard geospatial data interchange format that represents simple geographic features and their non-spatial attributes. It is based on JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and serves as a format for encoding various geographic data structures.

TIFF, also known as the Tagged Image File Format, is a file format designed for transferring, storing, and displaying raster images. It is commonly used for scanned aerial photography, maps, digital satellite imagery, and other geographic data.

GeoTIFF is a metadata standard that is in the public domain. It enables the embedding of georeferencing information in a TIFF file. This additional information can include projections, coordinate systems, ellipsoids, datums, and all other necessary details to establish the precise spatial reference for the file.
