npm install spatial-noise


var sn = require("spatial-noise")

//Generate noise values on a grid
for(var i=0; i<10; ++i) {
  for(var j=0; j<10; ++j) {
    console.log(i, j, "->", sn(i, j))

//Optimized methods are available for up to 4 dimensions
var t = sn.noise4d(10.01, 0.5, 10.0,

//You can also use floating point precision, which is slightly faster
var s = sn.noise2f(5, 6)


var sn = require("spatial-noise")

Double Precision

  • sn.noise1d(x)
  • sn.noise2d(x,y)
  • sn.noise3d(x,y,z)
  • sn.noise4d(x,y,z,t)
  • sn.noiseNd( ... )

Generates a spatially varying noise function in some fixed dimension taking doubles as arguments.

Note require("spatial-noise") is an alias for sn.noiseNd( ... ) and takes a variable number of arguments.

Float Precision

  • sn.noise1f(x)
  • sn.noise2f(x,y)
  • sn.noise3f(x,y,z)
  • sn.noise4f(x,y,z,t)
  • sn.noiseNf( ... )

Same deal as above, except arguments are all 32 bit floats instead of 64 bit doubles.
