There is undoubtedly a groundswell of support for the concept of geographic data sharing with the rapid development and wide-ranging application of geographic information science. However, copyright protection and infringement detection in the process of geographic data sharing has always been an important issue that needs to be addressed urgently. In this paper, we present a novel infringement detection method for GIS vector data to compensate for the shortcomings of vector data digital watermarking technology in infringement detection. The method determines whether infringement exists by the duplication degree between the original data and the vector data to be detected in three features including feature features, included angle features and vertex features which gets by using the spatial information of vector data to perform the feature matching based on GeoJSON format data. The experimental results indicate that the proposed algorithm can effectively resist common geometric attacks, such as interpolation attack, deletion attack, similarity transformation attack, feature order scrambling attack, and feature simplification attack, on vector data, which proves that the proposed algorithm has excellent robustness and meets the requirements of practical application.
