A slim Google Geocoder for PHP and Laravel
This is a simple geocode provider for PHP. By default, it uses google's geocode API but any compatible API will work.
This package can be installed using composer using
composer require rtablada/geocoder.
For Laravel 4, this package and its Service Provider can be installed using
php artisan package:install rtablada/geocoder.
On both, specify
dev-master as the version constraint.
To use this package outside of Laravel you can use
require 'vendor/autoload.php'; $geocoder = new Rtablada\Geocoder\Geocoder; var_dump($geocoder->getLocationFromQuery('Atlanta'));
The geocoder provides the following functions
|getLocationFromQuery||string Query||Returns a Location Object from the google geocode API|
|getCoordinatesFromQuery||string Query||Returns a Coordinates Object from the google geocode API|
|getSearchSquare||Coordinate center, number radius||Returns an array with the corners of a sqare around the centerpoint with a radius in miles|
The Geocoder Package also provides two helper classes (Location and Coordinate).
The Coordinate is a simple object with
The Location object has
coordinates properties. The
coordinates is an instance of the Coordinate class.
The Location class also provides a
newInstanceFromObject method to parse Google Geocode Result objects into Location objects.
