turf.inside

Takes a Point and a Polygon or MultiPolygon and determines if the point resides inside the polygon. The polygon can be convex or concave. The function accounts for holes.

Parameters

Name Type Description
point Feature.<Point>

input point

polygon Feature.<(Polygon|MultiPolygon)>

input polygon or multipolygon

Returns Boolean

true if the Point is inside the Polygon; false if the Point is not inside the Polygon
