GeoJSON is an open standard format designed for representing simple geographical features, along with their non-spatial attributes. It is based on JSON, the JavaScript Object Notation.

Example from Wikipedia:
{ "type":"Topology", "transform":{ "scale": [1,1], "translate": [0,0] }, "objects":{ "two-squares":{ "type": "GeometryCollection", "geometries":[ {"type": "Polygon", "arcs":[[0,1]],"properties": {"name": "Left_Polygon" }}, {"type": "Polygon", "arcs":[[2,-1]],"properties": {"name": "Right_Polygon" }} ] }, "one-line": { "type":"GeometryCollection", "geometries":[ {"type": "LineString", "arcs": [3],"properties":{"name":"Under_LineString"}} ] }, "two-places":{ "type":"GeometryCollection", "geometries":[ {"type":"Point","coordinates":[0,0],"properties":{"name":"Origine_Point"}}, {"type":"Point","coordinates":[0,-1],"properties":{"name":"Under_Point"}} ] } }, "arcs": [ [[1,2],[0,-2]], [[1,0],[-1,0],[0,2],[1,0]], [[1,2],[1,0],[0,-2],[-1,0]], [[0,-1],[2,0]] ] }
