NAME

Geo::Coder::Multimap - Geocode addresses with the Multimap Open API

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Geo::Coder::Multimap;

    my $geocoder = Geo::Coder::Multimap->new(apikey => Your API Key);
    my $location = $geocoder->geocode(
        location => Hollywood and Highland, Los Angeles, CA, US
    );



DESCRIPTION

The Geo::Coder::Multimap module provides an interface to the geocoding functionality of the Multimap Open API.

METHODS

    new



    $geocoder = Geo::Coder::Multimap->new(apikey => Your API Key)



Creates a new geocoding object.

An API key can be obtained here: <https://www.multimap.com/openapi/signup/>.

Accepts an optional <B>uaB> parameter for passing in a custom LWP::UserAgent object.

    geocode



    $location = $geocoder->geocode(location => $loc)
    $location = $geocoder->geocode(location => $loc, country => $code)
    @locations = $geocoder->geocode(location => $loc)



The location string should either include the country or the country paramter should be given. Note, the country parameter will produce better results in most cases.

In scalar context, this method returns the first location result; and in list context it returns all locations results.

Each location result is a hashref; a typical example looks like:



    {
        geocode_quality => 3a,
        point           => {
            lat => 34.10156,
            lon => -118.33872
        },
        zoom_factor => 14,
        address     => {
            postal_code  => 90028,
            country_code => US,
            areas        => [ HOLLYWOOD, CA ],
            display_name => HOLLYWOOD, CA, 90028
        },
        geocode_score => 0.409
    }



    ua



    $ua = $geocoder->ua()
    $ua = $geocoder->ua($ua)



Accessor for the UserAgent object.
