The GEOJSON and JSON formats come to be substituted for the Shapefile format, created by ESRI in the late 90s, which, despite being one of the most widespread ways of working with vector files in Geographic Information Systems, are gaining ground in utility and versatility.
GEOJSON files introduce an enhancement to JSON files and specialize in exchanging GIS data.
The GEOJSON format appeared in 2008 and can represent a geometry, a phenomenon or a collection of phenomena of a geographical nature.
In said GEOJSON we would have on the one hand the geometry and on the other the attributes associated with said information.
GEOJSON is a perfectly suitable replacement for the Shapefile in many scenarios (visualization and data exchange).
The GEOJSON format is quite accessible, various websites allow us to directly download the information in GEOJSON.
You can also start from a shapefile and convert it into GEOJSON to create a simple web map.
For more information refer to GeoJSON Wiki.
