USAGE

Create a Heatmap layer for GoogleMaps

    my $ghm = Geo::Heatmap->new();
    $ghm->palette('palette.store');
    $ghm->zoom_scale( {
      1 => 298983,
      2 => 177127,
      3 => 104949,
      4 => 90185,
      5 => 70338,
      6 => 37742,
      7 => 28157,
      8 => 12541,
      9 => 3662,
      10 => 1275,
      11 => 417,
      12 => 130,
      13 => 41,
      14 => 18,
      15 => 10,
      16 => 6,
      17 => 2,
      18 => 0,
    } );

    $ghm->cache($cache);
    $ghm->return_points( \&get_points );
    my $image = $ghm->tile($tile);

You need a color palette (one is included) to encode values to colors, in Storable Format as an arrayref of arrayrefs eg

    [50] = [34, 45, 56]

which means that a normalized value of 50 would lead to an RGB color of 34% red , 45% blue, 56% green.

zoom_scale

The maximum number of points for a given google zoom scale. You would be able to extract to values from the denisity log or derive them from your data in some cunning way

cache

You need some caching for the tiles otherwise the map would be quite slow. Use a CHI object with the cache you like

return_points

A function reference which expects a single hashref as a parameter which defines two LAT/LONG points to get all data points within this box:

      $r->{LATN}, $r->{LNGW}), $r->{LATS}, $r->{LNGE}

The function has to return an arrayref of arrayrefs of the points within the box

tile

Returns the rendered image

TODO ^

* change to GoogleMaps API v3 * put more magic in calculation of zoom scales * make more things configurable * add even more tests * Rewrite to use Imager http://search.cpan.org/~addi/Imager-0.43/Imager.pm * ...
