NAME

Geo::Geocalc - operations on geographical coordinates.

VERSION

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

Geo::Geocalc simple Perl module for coordinates processing. The basic assumptions of this module are: simple, light and clean as possible.

Some of the main functions (code snippets):

    use Geo::Geocalc;

        $distanceInKm = &getDistance($lat1,$lng1,$lat2,$lng2,$R) # calculate distance (km) between two points on Earth.

        $latitudeInDegree = &getLat($lat1,$lng1,$lng2,$distance,$R) # calculate latitude (deg) of the point based on other point and distance on Earth between them.

        $longitudeInDegree = &getLng($lat1,$lng1,$lat2,$distance,$R) # calculate longitude (deg) of the point based on other point and distance on Earth between them.

        &generateKMLPlacemarks($outputKmlFilename, @coordinates); # generate outputKmlFilename.kml with Placemarks based on an array of coordinates (deg) ($lat1, $lng1, $lat2, $lng2, ...)

        &generateKMLPolygons($outputKmlFilename, \%hashOfCoords); # generate outputKmlFilename.kml with Polygons based on an reference to hash of 0 -> @ of coordinates of corners (deg - $lat1, $lng1, $lat2, $lng2 ...) , recommended to use hash generated with generateGridCoordinates function

        &generateGridCoordinates($lat1, $lng1, $lat2, $lng2, $width, \%gridCoordinates, $R); # coordinates of opposite corners on Earth to be covered by the grid, size of grid in km, reference to hash of grid output coordinates and optional, Earth radius.

        ($qLat, $qLng) = &Geo::Geocalc::randomPlacemarkInsidePolygon(@{$gridCoordinates{$sector}}); # generate random place (latitude and longitude values) inside provided Polygon - array of 4 corners coordinates ($lat1, $lng1, $lat2, $lng2, ...)
