GeocoderToolkit is a geo-related utils & toolkit PHP library, build atop the Geocoder library

It provides simple tools such as

  • distant geopoints coordinates calculation (bounding box angles, etc.)
  • other geo-related tools to come (all contributors will be fully credited!)

Build Status


GeocoderToolkit is not a stand-alone library: it assumes strong dependency with the Geocoder PHP library.

The recommended way to install Geocoder is through composer.

Just create a composer.json file for your project:

     "require": {
        "php": ">=5.3.0",
        "willdurand/geocoder": "master-dev",
        "ronanguilloux/geocodertoolkit": "master-dev"

And run these two commands to install it:

$ wget
$ php composer.phar install

Now you can add the autoloader, and you will have access to the library:


require 'vendor/autoload.php';

If you don't use neither Composer nor a ClassLoader in your application, just require the provided autoloader:


require_once 'src/autoload.php';


Here is an example of how to determine a new geopoint, 500 kilometers away from an origin, in the north-east direction:


$origin = new Geocoded();
$origin->fromArray(array('latitude'=>'47.218371', 'longitude'=>'-1.553621')); // Nantes, Loire valley, France
$geometry = new BoundingBoxGeometry();
// 45 = bearing angle, 500 = distance, 'kilometer' is default, but miles are OK
$northEast = $geometry->getAngle($origin, 45, 500); // a new geocoded resource


You can provide your own geometry tool, you just need to create a new class which implements GeometryInterface.

Unit Tests

To run unit tests, you'll need cURL and a set of dependencies you can install using Composer:

$ php composer.phar install --dev

Once installed, just launch the following command:

$ phpunit
