Class: Vector

ol.source.Vector

Provides a source of features for vector layers. Vector features provided by this source are suitable for editing. See ol.source.VectorTile for vector data that is optimized for rendering.

Name Type Description
options

Vector source options.

Name Type Description
attributions ol.AttributionLike | undefined

Attributions.

features Array.<ol.Feature> | ol.Collection.<ol.Feature> | undefined

Features. If provided as ol.Collection, the features in the source and the collection will stay in sync.

format ol.format.Feature | undefined

The feature format used by the XHR feature loader when url is set. Required if url is set, otherwise ignored. Default is undefined.

loader ol.FeatureLoader | undefined

The loader function used to load features, from a remote source for example. If this is not set and url is set, the source will create and use an XHR feature loader.

logo string | olx.LogoOptions | undefined

Logo.

overlaps boolean | undefined

This source may have overlapping geometries. Default is true. Setting this to false (e.g. for sources with polygons that represent administrative boundaries or TopoJSON sources) allows the renderer to optimise fill and stroke operations.

strategy ol.LoadingStrategy | undefined

The loading strategy to use. By default an ol.loadingstrategy.all strategy is used, a one-off strategy which loads all features at once.

url string | ol.FeatureUrlFunction | undefined

Setting this option instructs the source to load features using an XHR loader (see ol.featureloader.xhr). Use a string and an ol.loadingstrategy.all for a one-off download of all features from the given URL. Use a ol.FeatureUrlFunction to generate the url with other loading strategies. Requires format to be set as well. When default XHR feature loader is provided, the features will be transformed from the data projection to the view projection during parsing. If your remote data source does not advertise its projection properly, this transformation will be incorrect. For some formats, the default projection (usually EPSG:4326) can be overridden by setting the defaultDataProjection constructor option on the format. Note that if a source contains non-feature data, such as a GeoJSON geometry or a KML NetworkLink, these will be ignored. Use a custom loader to load these.

useSpatialIndex boolean | undefined

By default, an RTree is used as spatial index. When features are removed and added frequently, and the total number of features is low, setting this to false may improve performance.

Note that ol.source.Vector#getFeaturesInExtent, ol.source.Vector#getClosestFeatureToCoordinate and ol.source.Vector#getExtent cannot be used when useSpatialIndex is set to false, and ol.source.Vector#forEachFeatureInExtent will loop through all features.

When set to false, the features will be maintained in an ol.Collection, which can be retrieved through ol.source.Vector#getFeaturesCollection.

The default is true.

wrapX boolean | undefined

Wrap the world horizontally. Default is true. For vector editing across the -180° and 180° meridians to work properly, this should be set to false. The resulting geometry coordinates will then exceed the world bounds.

Methods

addFeature(feature)

Add a single feature to the source. If you want to add a batch of features at once, call source.addFeatures() instead.

Name Type Description
feature ol.Feature

Feature to add.

addFeatures(features)

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 244

Add a batch of features to the source.

Name Type Description
features Array.<ol.Feature>

Features to add.

changed() inherited

src/ol/observable.js, line 58

Increases the revision counter and dispatches a 'change' event.

clear(opt_fast)

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 342

Remove all features from the source.

Name Type Description
fast boolean

Skip dispatching of removefeature events.

dispatchEvent(event) inherited

src/ol/observable.js, line 75

Dispatches an event and calls all listeners listening for events of this type. The event parameter can either be a string or an Object with a type property.

Name Type Description
event Object | ol.events.Event | string

Event object.

forEachFeature(callback, opt_this){S|undefined}

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 389

Iterate through all features on the source, calling the provided callback with each one. If the callback returns any "truthy" value, iteration will stop and the function will return the same value.

Name Type Description
callback function

Called with each feature on the source. Return a truthy value to stop iteration.

this T

The object to use as this in the callback.

Returns:
The return value from the last call to the callback.

forEachFeatureInExtent(extent, callback, opt_this){S|undefined}

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 445

Iterate through all features whose bounding box intersects the provided extent (note that the feature's geometry may not intersect the extent), calling the callback with each feature. If the callback returns a "truthy" value, iteration will stop and the function will return the same value.

If you are interested in features whose geometry intersects an extent, call the source.forEachFeatureIntersectingExtent() method instead.

When useSpatialIndex is set to false, this method will loop through all features, equivalent to ol.source.Vector#forEachFeature.

Name Type Description
extent ol.Extent

Extent.

callback function

Called with each feature whose bounding box intersects the provided extent.

this T

The object to use as this in the callback.

Returns:
The return value from the last call to the callback.

forEachFeatureIntersectingExtent(extent, callback, opt_this){S|undefined}

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 471

Iterate through all features whose geometry intersects the provided extent, calling the callback with each feature. If the callback returns a "truthy" value, iteration will stop and the function will return the same value.

If you only want to test for bounding box intersection, call the source.forEachFeatureInExtent() method instead.

Name Type Description
extent ol.Extent

Extent.

callback function

Called with each feature whose geometry intersects the provided extent.

this T

The object to use as this in the callback.

Returns:
The return value from the last call to the callback.

getFeatureById(id){ol.Feature}

src/ol/source/vector.js, line 630
