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 W Main St Anoka MN 55303 US',
      lang     => 'en',
      count    => 1,
  );
  printf "%f,%f",
      $result->{RESULTS}{COORDINATES}{latitude},
      $result->{RESULTS}{COORDINATES}{longitude};

DESCRIPTION ^

The Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm module provides an interface to the geocoding functionality of the GeocodeFarm API v3.

METHODS ^

new

  $geocoder = Geo::Coder::GeocodeFarm->new(
      key    => '3d517dd448a5ce1c2874637145fed69903bc252a',
      url    => 'https://www.geocode.farm/v3/',
      ua     => HTTP::Tiny->new,
      parser => JSON->new->utf8,
      raise_failure => 1,
  );

Creates a new geocoding object with optional arguments.

An API key is optional and can be obtained at https://www.geocode.farm/dashboard/login/

url argument is optional and then the default address is http-based if key argument is missing and https-based if key is provided.

ua argument is a HTTP::Tiny object by default and can be also set to LWP::UserAgent object.

New account can be registered at https://www.geocode.farm/register/

geocode

  $result = $geocoder->geocode(
      location => $location,
      lang     => 'en',  # optional: 'en' or 'de'
      country  => 'US',  # optional
      count    => 1,     # optional
  )

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

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,
      lon      => $longtitude,
      lang     => 'en',  # optional: 'en' or 'de'
      country  => 'US',  # optional
      count    => 1,     # optional
  )

or

  $result = $geocoder->reverse_geocode(
      latlng => "$latitude,$longtitude",
      # ... optional args
  )

Reverse geocoding takes a provided coordinate set and returns the address for the requested coordinates as a nested list. Its format is the same as for "geocode" method.

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.
