NAME ^

WWW::Google::DistanceMatrix - Interface to Google Distance Matrix API.

VERSION ^

Version 0.07

DESCRIPTION ^

The Google Distance Matrix API is a service that provides travel distance & time for a matrix of origins and destinations.The information returned is based on the recommended route between start & end points as calculated by the Google Maps API & consists of rows containing duration and distance values for each pair. The Distance Matrix API has the following limits in place:

NOTE ^

Use of the Distance Matrix API must relate to the display of information on a Google Map; for example to determine origin-destination pairs that fall within specific driving time from one another before requesting and displaying those destinations on a map.Use of the service in an application that doesn't display a Google map is prohibited.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

The following list of optional parameters can be passed in to the constructor.

METHODS ^

getDistance()

Returns the distance matrix in the desired output format (json/xml) from the set of origins to the set of destinations. Following parameters can be passed in:

    +----------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
    | key      | Description                                               |
    +----------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
    | o_addr   | One or more origin address(es).                           |
    | o_latlng | One or more origin latitude/longitude coordinate(s).      |
    | d_addr   | One or more destination address(es).                      |
    | d_latlng | One or more destination latitude/longitude coordinate(s). |
    +----------+-----------------------------------------------------------+

If you pass coordinates ensure that no space exists between the latitude/longitude values.
