turf destination module

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import spatialDestination from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@spatial/destination';




Takes a Point and calculates the location of a destination point given a distance in degrees, radians, miles, or kilometers; and bearing in degrees. This uses the Haversine formula to account for global curvature.


  • origin Coord starting point
  • distance number distance from the origin point
  • bearing number ranging from -180 to 180
  • options Object Optional parameters (optional, default {})
    • options.units string miles, kilometers, degrees, or radians (optional, default 'kilometers')
    • options.properties Object Translate properties to Point (optional, default {})


var point = turf.point([-75.343, 39.984]);
var distance = 50;
var bearing = 90;
var options = {units: 'miles'};

var destination = turf.destination(point, distance, bearing, options);

var addToMap = [point, destination]
destination.properties['marker-color'] = '#f00';
point.properties['marker-color'] = '#0f0';

Returns Feature<Point> destination point
