GeoDataFrame.to_feather(path, index=None, compression=None, **kwargs)

Write a GeoDataFrame to the Feather format.

Any geometry columns present are serialized to WKB format in the file.

Requires ‘pyarrow’ >= 0.17.

WARNING: this is an initial implementation of Feather file support and associated metadata. This is tracking version 0.1.0 of the metadata specification at:

This metadata specification does not yet make stability promises. As such, we do not yet recommend using this in a production setting unless you are able to rewrite your Feather files.

New in version 0.8.

pathstr, path object
indexbool, default None

If True, always include the dataframe’s index(es) as columns in the file output. If False, the index(es) will not be written to the file. If None, the index(ex) will be included as columns in the file output except RangeIndex which is stored as metadata only.

compression{‘zstd’, ‘lz4’, ‘uncompressed’}, optional

Name of the compression to use. Use "uncompressed" for no compression. By default uses LZ4 if available, otherwise uncompressed.


Additional keyword arguments passed to to pyarrow.feather.write_feather().
