NAME ^

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

VERSION ^

Version 0.02

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.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use WWW::Google::DistanceMatrix;

    my $google = WWW::Google::DistanceMatrix->new();
    print $google->getDistance(o_addr => 'Bobcaygeon+ON',
                               d_addr => 'Darling+Harbour+NSW+Australia');
                               
    print $google->getDistance(o_addr => '41.43206,-81.38992',
                               d_addr => 'Darling+Harbour+NSW+Australia');
                           
    print $google->getDistance(o_addr => ['Vancouver+BC', 'Seattle'],
                               d_addr => ['San+Francisco', 'Victoria+BC']);
