    Rendering Binary Shapefiles With JavaScript

    By Lurker,
    A Shapefile  is a commonly used binary format that stores geometric data such as lines, points and polygons along with attribute information that describes what that geometric data represents.  Despite the term “shapefile,” a shapefile is actually a set of several files, three of which are mandatory to store the data comprising a “shapefile”.  The first of these files is the .shp file, which stores the actual geometric data.  Another file, the .shx file, is an index file that allows seeking forw
