turf nearest-point module

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import turfNearestPoint from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@turf/nearest-point';




Takes a reference point and a FeatureCollection of Features with Point geometries and returns the point from the FeatureCollection closest to the reference. This calculation is geodesic.



var targetPoint = turf.point([28.965797, 41.010086], {"marker-color": "#0F0"});
var points = turf.featureCollection([
    turf.point([28.973865, 41.011122]),
    turf.point([28.948459, 41.024204]),
    turf.point([28.938674, 41.013324])

var nearest = turf.nearestPoint(targetPoint, points);

var addToMap = [targetPoint, points, nearest];
nearest.properties['marker-color'] = '#F00';

Returns Feature<Point> the closest point in the set to the reference point
