This is my simple GeoJSON with Leaflet map. I want to display properties as popup but I don't know why it is empty.

Can you tell me my mistake?

<title>A Leaflet map!</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://cdn.leafletjs.com/leaflet-0.7.3/leaflet.css" />
#map {
width: 960px;
height: 500px;

<div id="map"></div>
<script src="http://cdn.leafletjs.com/leaflet-0.7.3/leaflet.js"></script>
    var map = L.map('map',{
    center: [49.833352, 18.163662],
    zoom: 10
    L.tileLayer('http://{s}.tile.osm.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
    attribution: '&copy; <a href="http://osm.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors'

    var data ={
      "type": "FeatureCollection",
      "features": [
          "type": "Feature",
          "geometry": {
            "type": "Point",
            "coordinates": [
          "properties": {
            "f1": 11793,
            "f2": "BT"

var layer = L.geoJson(data, {
layer.bindPopup('<h1>'+feature.properties.f1+'</h1><p>name: '+feature.properties.f2+'</p>');

The line where you create and bind your popup should have been included in the onEachFeature option of your L.geoJSON factory.

var layerGroup = L.geoJSON(data, {
  onEachFeature: function (feature, layer) {
    layer.bindPopup('<h1>'+feature.properties.f1+'</h1><p>name: '+feature.properties.f2+'</p>');

Having this line outside the factory makes it access your outer scope layer variable, which is actually the GeoJSON Layer Group that holds all the features from your GeoJSON data, therefore it tries to bind a popup on each of these features (in your case, there is only 1 marker, but it could be more).

Above all, it does not know any feature variable, which creates an error.


Build a simple popup content for any properties in a simple way, in one line:

var layer = L.geoJSON(data, {
 onEachFeature: function (f, l) {
   l.bindPopup('<pre>'+JSON.stringify(f.properties,null,' ').replace(/[\{\}"]/g,'')+'</pre>');

You can use below codes:

function onEachFeature(feature, layer) {
    // does this feature have a property named popupContent?
    if (feature.properties && feature.properties.Name && feature.properties.Lat && feature.properties.Lon) {
/// for Show in map marker style and popup
    L.geoJSON(geojsonFeature, {
    pointToLayer: function (feature, latlng) {
        return L.circleMarker(latlng, geojsonMarkerOptions);
    onEachFeature: onEachFeature

  • I have done this part. my attribute value is now showing on click basis. But now I want to use this as label. This is why I have asked the question. I am finding it hard to make label of geojson data in leaflet. Mar 21, 2020 at 21:25
