README

GeoLocation for PHP offers convenient and easy to use methods for geocoding, geolocation and geometry functions in PHP.

Features include:

  1. Retrieve bounding box coordinates. Just define a coordinate and the size of your bounding box.
  2. calculate distances between geopoints/coordinates
  3. Solve point in polygon problems (identify whether a given point is within the bounds of a polygon)

Examples

Get distance between two points:

<?php

use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\GeoPoint;

$geopointA = new GeoPoint(40.5187154, -74.4120953);
$geopointB = new GeoPoint(40.65, -73.95);
$geopointB = $geopointA->distanceTo($geopointB, 'miles');

Get latitude and longitude from address or location

In order to use this method, you'll need to register at Google Cloud Console and enable the Geocoding API

<?php
use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\GeoPoint;

$geopoint = GeoPoint::fromAddress('New York, NY 10001', 'google-api-key-goes-here');
$latitude = $geopoint->getLatitude();
$longitude = $geopoint->getLongitude();

Get bounding box coordinates

<?php

use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\GeoPoint;

$geopointA = new GeoPoint(40.5187154, -74.4120953);
$boundingBox = $geopointA->boundingBox(3, 'miles');
$boundingBox->getMaxLatitude();
$boundingBox->getMaxLongitude();
$boundingBox->getMinLatitude();
$boundingBox->getMinLongitude();

How to find if coordinates/geopoint are in a polygon.

<?php

use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\GeoPoint;
use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\Polygon;

$geopointA = new GeoPoint(40.5187154, -74.4120953);
$polygon = Polygon::fromArray(array(
    [$lat1, $lon1],
    [$lat2, $lon2],
    [$lat3, $lon3],
    [$lat4, $lon4]
));
if ($geopointA->inPolygon($polygon)) {
  echo "GeoPoint is in Polygon!";
}

Transform bounding box coordinates into a polygon

<?php

use AnthonyMartin\GeoLocation\GeoPoint;

$geopointA = new GeoPoint(40.5187154, -74.4120953);
$boundingBox = $geopointA->boundingBox(5, 'mi');
$polygon = $boundingBox->toPolygon();

and now you can check if the GeoPoint is the polygon / bounding box:

if ($geopointA->inPolygon($polygon)) {
  echo "GeoPoint is in Polygon / Bounding Box!";
}
