NAME ^

Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm - Geocode addresses with the GeocodeFarm API

SYNOPSIS ^

use Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm;

  my $geocoder = Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm->new(
      key => '3d517dd448a5ce1c2874637145fed69903bc252a'
  );
  my $result = $geocoder->geocode(
      location => '530 West Main St Anoka MN 55303'
  );
  printf "%f,%f",
      $result->{COORDINATES}{latitude},
      $result->{COORDINATES}{longitude};

DESCRIPTION ^

The Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm module provides an interface to the geocoding functionality of the GeocodeFarm API.

METHODS ^

new

  $geocoder = Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm->new(
      key    => '3d517dd448a5ce1c2874637145fed69903bc252a',
      url    => 'http://www.geocodefarm.com/api/',
      ua     => LWP::UserAgent->new,
      parser => JSON->new->utf8,
      raise_failure => 1,
  );

Creates a new geocoding object. key argument is required.

An API key can be obtained at http://geocodefarm.com/dashboard/login/

New account can be registered at http://geocodefarm.com/dashboard/register/free/

geocode

  $result = $geocoder->geocode(
      location => $location
  )

Forward geocoding takes a provided address or location and returns the coordinate set for the requested location as a nested list:

  {
      ACCOUNT => {
          api_key => '3d517dd448a5ce1c2874637145fed69903bc252a',
          email => 'joe.sixpack@example.net',
          monthly_due => '25.00',
          name => 'Joe Sixpack',
          next_due => '20130901',
          remaining_queries => '24995',
          usage_limit => '25000',
          used_today => '5',
      },
      ADDRESS => {
          accuracy => 'GOOD ACCURACY',
          address_provided => '530 WEST MAIN ST ANOKA MN 55303',
          address_returned => '530 WEST MAIN STREET, ANOKA, MN 55303, USA',
      },
      COORDINATES => {
          latitude => '45.2040305',
          longitude => '-93.3995728',
      },
      PROVIDER => {
          import => 'ALREADY STORED',
          provider => 'LOCAL FARM',
      },
      STATUS => {
          access => 'KEY_VALID, ACCESS_GRANTED',
          copyright_logo => 'http://www.geocodefarm.com/assets/img/logo.png',
          copyright_notice => 'Results Copyright (c) 2013 GeocodeFarm. All Rights Reserved. No unauthorized redistribution without written consent from GeocodeFarm's Owners and Operators.',
          status => 'SUCCESS',
      },
  }

Slash / is replaced with dash - in location string.

Method throws an error (or returns failure as nested list if raise_failure argument is false) if the service failed to find coordinates or wrong key was used.

Methods throws an error if there was an other problem.

reverse_geocode

  $result = $geocoder->reverse_geocode(
      lat => $latitude,
      lng => $longtitude,
  )

or

  $result = $geocoder->reverse_geocode(
      latlng => "$latitude,$longtitude",
  )

Reverse geocoding takes a provided coordinate set and returns the address for the requested coordinates as a nested list:

  {
      ACCOUNT => {
          api_key => '3d517dd448a5ce1c2874637145fed69903bc252a',
          email => 'joe.sixpack@example.net',
          monthly_due => '25.00',
          name => 'Joe Sixpack',
          next_due => '20130901',
          remaining_queries => '24994',
          usage_limit => '25000',
          used_today => '6',
      },
      ADDRESS => {
          address => '500-534 West Main Street, Anoka, MN 55303, USA',
          accuracy => 'GOOD ACCURACY',
      },
      COORDINATES => {
          latitude => '45.204031',
          longitude => '-93.399573',
      },
      PROVIDER => {
          import => 'ALREADY STORED',
          provider => 'LOCAL FARM',
      },
      STATUS => {
          access => 'KEY_VALID, ACCESS_GRANTED',
          copyright_logo => 'http://www.geocodefarm.com/assets/img/logo.png',
          copyright_notice => 'Results Copyright (c) 2013 GeocodeFarm. All Rights Reserved. No unauthorized redistribution without written consent from GeocodeFarm's Owners and Operators.',
          status => 'SUCCESS',
      },
  }

Method throws an error (or returns failure as nested list if raise_failure argument is false) if the service failed to find coordinates or wrong key was used.

Method throws an error if there was an other problem.
