  // sets up a handler for the data (server sends data) event

    console.log('Passed', stats.featureCount, 'features');
    console.log('Traveled', stats.distance, 'meters');
    console.log('It took', stats.elapsedTime, 'seconds');

  // sets up a handler for the end event (stream closes)
  stream.on('end', function () {
    // The server has finished sending
    console.log('All done');

  // sets up a handler for the error event (an error occurs)
  stream.on('error', function (e) {
    // An error has occurred and the stream has been closed.
    console.log('Error: ' + JSON.stringify(e));
