I am wondering how to CLEARLY generate the JSON file from the data based in Excel file.

I know some ways to do it, although as a result I have got sth like this:

 5RX","MS_Ref":"REG/LYVELLYGDNS","Owner":"Long Term Reversions (Dulwich) 
 Limited","Client_Ref":"LYVELLYGDNS","Address":"The Keep, Lyvelly Gardens, 
 Peterborough","Postcode":"PE1 }}]}

instead of:

"type": "FeatureCollection",

"features": [{
    "type": "Feature",
    "properties": {
        "ID": "1",
        "League": "NL",
        "lat": 33.445278,
        "long": -112.066667,
        "Team": "Arizona Diamondbacks",
        "City": "Phoenix, Arizona",
        "Stadium": "Chase Field",
        "Capacity": "48570",
        "Address": "401 East Jefferson Street",
        "City2": " Phoenix",
        "State-Zip": " Arizona 85001",
        "Logo": "http:\/\/mlb.mlb.com\/mlb\/images\/team_logos\/logo_ari_79x76.jpg",
        "LeagueLogo": "http:\/\/mlb.mlb.com\/mlb\/images\/nl_75x75.png",
        "Name": "Diamondbacks",
        "Website": "http:\/\/arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com"
    "geometry": {
        "type": "Point",
        "coordinates": [-0.2105823999999834, 52.5905531,0]
}, {
    "type": "Feature",
    "properties": {
        "ID": "2",
        "League": "NL",
        "lat": 33.735206,
        "long": -84.389642,
        "Team": "Atlanta Braves",
        "City": "Atlanta, Georgia",
        "Stadium": "Turner Field",
        "Capacity": "50091",
        "Address": "755 Hank Aaron Drive SE",
        "City2": " Atlanta",
        "State-Zip": " Georgia 30315",
        "Logo": "http:\/\/mlb.mlb.com\/mlb\/images\/team_logos\/logo_atl_79x76.jpg",
        "LeagueLogo": "http:\/\/mlb.mlb.com\/mlb\/images\/nl_75x75.png",
        "Name": "Braves",
        "Website": "http:\/\/atlanta.braves.mlb.com"
    "geometry": {
        "type": "Point",
        "coordinates": [-84.389642, 33.735206]

like in the example below:


Does anyone knows how to get the clearly generated GeoJSON data like this? Or shall I manage with it manually?

  • For XML I know that notepad++ has a tool to cleanly format it, maybe the same functionality exist for JSON, also there are probably webtool that do it... – J.R Sep 5 at 16:35
  • How do you do it? Using VBA? – MrXsquared Sep 5 at 16:40
  • 1
    This is sometimes called "pretty printing" -- There are lots of "pretty-printers" available for JSON. Python and Java have JSON pretty-printers. – Vince Sep 5 at 16:41
  • No, only MS Excel, saving as a .csv and next via phpmyadmin, where I can save it as a JSON. – Mariusz Krukar Sep 5 at 16:41

It looks like I found the solution.

One of it is the JSON pretty printing - mentioned in one of the comment above.


You can only paste the compact JSON code and get the clear result.
