Simple Features
Simple Features is a 2D geometry library that provides Go types that model geometries, as well as algorithms that operate on them.
It's a pure Go Implementation of the OpenGIS Consortium's Simple Feature Access Specification (which can be found here). This is the same specification that GEOS, JTS, and PostGIS implement, so the Simple Features API will be familiar to developers who have used those libraries before.

Geometry Types
Type Example Description
Point Point is a single location in space.
MultiPoint MultiPoint is collection of points in space.
LineString LineString is curve defined by linear interpolation between a set of control points.
MultiLineString MultiLineString is a collection of LineStrings.
Polygon Polygon is a planar surface geometry that bounds some area. It may have holes.
MultiPolygon Polygon is collection of Polygons (with some constraints on how the Polygons interact with each other).
GeometryCollection GeometryCollection is an unconstrained collection of geometries.
Geometry Geometry holds any type of geometry (Point, MultiPoint, LineString, MultiLineString, Polygon, MultiPolygon, or GeometryCollection). It's the type that the Simple Features library uses when it needs to represent geometries in a generic way.
Envelope Envelope is an axis aligned bounding box typically used to describe the spatial extent of other geometric entities.
Marshalling and Unmarshalling
Simple features supports the following external geometry representation formats:
Format  Example  Description 

WKT  POLYGON((0 0,0 1,1 1,1 0,0 0)) 
Well Known Text is a human readable format for storing geometries. It's often the lowest common denominator geometry format, and is useful for integration with other GIS applications. 
WKB  <binary> 
Well Known Binary is a machine readable format that is efficient for computers to use (both from a processing and storage space perspective). WKB is a good choice for transferring geometries to and from PostGIS and other databases that support geometric types. 
GeoJSON  {"type":"Polygon","coordinates":[[[0,0],[0,1],[1,1],[1,0],[0,0]]]} 
GeoJSON represents geometries in a similar way to WKB, but is based on the JSON format. This makes it ideal to use with web APIs or other situations where JSON would normally be used. 
TWKB  <binary> 
Tiny Well Known Binary is a multipurpose compressed binary format for serialising vector geometries into a stream of bytes. It emphasises minimising the size of the serialised representation. It's a good choice when space is at a premium (e.g. for storage within a web token). 
Geometry Algorithms
The following algorithms are supported:
Miscellaneous Algorithms  Description 

Area  Finds the area of the geometry (for Polygons and MultiPolygons). 
Centroid  Finds the centroid of the geometry. 
ConvexHull  Finds the convex hull of the geometry. 
Distance  Finds the shortest distance between two geometries. 
Envelope  Finds the smallest axisaligned boundingbox that surrounds the geometry. 
ExactEquals  Determines if two geometries are structurally equal. 
Length  Finds the length of the geometry (for LineStrings and MultiLineStrings). 
PointOnSurface  Finds a point that lies inside the geometry. 
Relate  Calculates the DE9IM intersection describing the relationship between two geometries. 
Simplify  Simplifies a geometry using the Ramer–Douglas–Peucker algorithm. 
Set Operations  Description 

Union  Joins the parts from two geometries together. 
Intersection  Finds the parts of two geometries that are in common. 
Difference  Finds the parts of a geometry that are not also part of another geometry. 
SymmetricDifference  Finds the parts of two geometries that are not in common. 
Named Spatial Predicates  Description 

Equals  Determines if two geometries are topologically equal. 
Intersects  Determines if two geometries intersect with each other. 
Disjoint  Determines if two geometries have no common points. 
Contains  Determines if one geometry contains another. 
CoveredBy  Determines if one geometry is covered by another. 
Covers  Determines if one geometry covers another. 
Overlaps  Determines if one geometry overlaps another. 
Touches  Determines if one geometry touches another. 
Within  Determines if one geometry is within another. 
Crosses  Determines if one geometry crosses another. 
GEOS Wrapper
A GEOS CGO wrapper is also provided, giving access to functionality not yet implemented natively in Go. The wrapper is implemented in a separate package, meaning that library users who don't need this additional functionality don't need to expose themselves to CGO.
Examples
The following examples show some common operations (errors are omitted for brevity).
WKT
Encoding and decoding WKT:
// Unmarshal from WKT
input := "POLYGON((0 0,0 1,1 1,1 0,0 0))"
g, _ := geom.UnmarshalWKT(input)
// Marshal to WKT
output := g.AsText()
fmt.Println(output) // Prints: POLYGON((0 0,0 1,1 1,1 0,0 0))
WKB
Encoding and decoding WKB directly:
// Marshal as WKB
coords := geom.Coordinates{XY: geom.XY{1.5, 2.5}}
pt := geom.NewPoint(coords)
wkb := pt.AsBinary()
fmt.Println(wkb) // Prints: [1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 248 63 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 64]
// Unmarshal from WKB
fromWKB, _ := geom.UnmarshalWKB(wkb)
fmt.Println(fromWKB.AsText()) // POINT(1.5 2.5)
Encoding and decoding WKB for integration with PostGIS:
db, _ := sql.Open("postgres", "postgres://...")
db.Exec(`
CREATE TABLE my_table (
my_geom geometry(geometry, 4326),
population double precision
)`,
)
// Insert our geometry and population data into PostGIS via WKB.
coords := geom.Coordinates{XY: geom.XY{74.0, 40.7}}
nyc := geom.NewPoint(coords)
db.Exec(`
INSERT INTO my_table
(my_geom, population)
VALUES (ST_GeomFromWKB($1, 4326), $2)`,
nyc, 8.4e6,
)
// Get the geometry and population data back out of PostGIS via WKB.
var location geom.Geometry
var population float64
db.QueryRow(`
SELECT ST_AsBinary(my_geom), population
FROM my_table LIMIT 1`,
).Scan(&location, &population)
fmt.Println(location.AsText(), population) // Prints: POINT(74 40.7) 8.4e+06
GeoJSON
Encoding and decoding GeoJSON directly:
// Unmarshal geometry from GeoJSON.
raw := `{"type":"Point","coordinates":[74.0,40.7]}`
var g geom.Geometry
json.NewDecoder(strings.NewReader(raw)).Decode(&g)
fmt.Println(g.AsText()) // Prints: POINT(74 40.7)
// Marshal back to GeoJSON.
enc := json.NewEncoder(os.Stdout)
enc.Encode(g) // Prints: {"type":"Point","coordinates":[74,40.7]}
Geometries can also be part of larger structs:
type CityPopulation struct {
Location geom.Geometry `json:"loc"`
Population int `json:"pop"`
}
// Unmarshal geometry from GeoJSON.
raw := `{"loc":{"type":"Point","coordinates":[74.0,40.7]},"pop":8400000}`
var v CityPopulation
json.NewDecoder(strings.NewReader(raw)).Decode(&v)
fmt.Println(v.Location.AsText()) // Prints: POINT(74 40.7)
fmt.Println(v.Population) // Prints: 8400000
// Marshal back to GeoJSON.
enc := json.NewEncoder(os.Stdout)
enc.Encode(v) // Prints: {"loc":{"type":"Point","coordinates":[74,40.7]},"pop":8400000}
