Your Invite to the Turf Party

If you haven't started playing with Turf.js yet I can only assume that it's because your invitation somehow got lost in the post. Let's remedy that now:

This is your formal invitation to the Turf Party. No RSVP necessary.

Turf is an incredibly powerful JavaScript library for performing many common GIS operations in the browser. Turf.jsParty is a great online editor which allows you to play around and learn turf in your browser without having to set up the boilerplate code.

Turf,jsParty consists of two main sections, an editor and a Leaflet map. The editor allows you to choose from a number of common turf operations. You can edit and play around with the examples in the editor and view your edits directly on the Leaflet map. Of course you don't have to use the provided examples and can test your own turf operations by entering them directly into the editor.

While attending the Turf Party you might find it handy to also have a look at the Turf API Documentation.

Update: turf,jsparty now includes the option to view the Turf API Documentation directly from the editor. While exploring the many examples in the editor you can now highlight a line containing a Turf function and press the 'Quick Docs' button. This will open the relevant API documentation for the selected function right next to the editor.
