I'm pretty new with Leaflet and have a basic question: I added this pop-up to my loaded GeoJSON file according to Leaflet, but it won't work.

Any hint?

// load external GeoJSON file
var nonregWash = $.getJSON("../assets/NonRegulatoryWashes.geojson", function (data) {
    // create GeoJSON layer and add it to the map
    L.geoJson(data, {
            style: function (feature) {
                switch (true) {
                    case feature.properties.Name.includes('Non-Regulatory'):
                        return {
                            color: "CornflowerBlue", weight: 1
                        };
                    case feature.properties.Name.includes('Regulatory'):
                        return {
                            color: "DarkBlue", weight: 1
                        };
                    default:
                        return {
                            color: "Black", weight: 1
                        };
                }
            }
        }) ** // add popup to the layer**
        .bindPopup(function (layer) {
            return layer.feature.properties.description;
        }).addTo(map);
});

  • NonRegulatoryWashes.geojson file contains points, lines or polygons? – ThomasG77 May 18 at 20:51
  • ThomasG77,They are lines, exported from shapefiles in QGIS – GwezaKwer May 18 at 21:00

Below a working solution for lines. I've changed the colors to distinct better the result for the demo purpose and also the path to the GeoJSON file. FYI, you at least made an error at ** // add popup to the layer**. It should be // add popup to the layer or /* add popup to the layer */

  • Thank you Thomas, – GwezaKwer May 18 at 21:49
  • Thank you, It worked. I compared your script to mine and didn't see much difference, except for the console.log(data) that was missing from my script, or I'm missing something else? I tried to understand how console.log(data) made this difference, but no luck! --P.S. The asterisks were added to the comment when I tried to make it Bold, and I thought it is how it works :) – GwezaKwer May 18 at 21:58
  • Clean the comments in your original code. Nearly sure it was the issue. Asterisks make things bold in Markdown not in JavaScript or HTML – ThomasG77 May 18 at 22:32

Instead of:

   var nonregWash = $.getJSON("../assets/NonRegulatoryWashes.geojson", function (data) {

I would go with:

   var url1 = "../assets/NonRegulatoryWashes.geojson";

   var item;

and next:

     var nonregWash = $.getJSON(url, function (data) {
  


   item = L.geoJson(data, {

               /*
               pointToLayer: function(feature, latlng) {
               return L.circleMarker(latlng, {
               radius:6,
               opacity: .5,
               color:getColor(feature.properties.League),
               fillColor:  getColor(feature.properties.League),
               fillOpacity: 0.8
    },
                     */
        style: function (feature) {
            switch (true) {
                case feature.properties.Name.includes('Non-Regulatory'):
                    return {
                        color: "CornflowerBlue", weight: 1
                    };
                case feature.properties.Name.includes('Regulatory'):
                    return {
                        color: "DarkBlue", weight: 1
                    };
                default:
                    return {
                        color: "Black", weight: 1
                    };
            }
        }
    }) ** // add popup to the layer**
    .bindPopup(function (layer) {
        return layer.feature.properties.description;
    }).addTo(map);
   });

Just in case, you can use PointtoLayer attribute, where you will define the element appearance on your map.

The JQuery can't simply pick up the geojson URL, as you want. It needs to have some variable defined, which will store this URL for it. An analog thing applies to the object. You started to define the style, whereas the object variable hasn't been set.
