SYNOPSIS

  use Geo::WebService::OpenCellID;
  my $gwo=Geo::WebService::OpenCellID->new(key=>$apikey);
  my $point=$gwo->cell->get(mcc=>$country,

                            lac=>$locale,
                            cellid=>$cellid);

DESCRIPTION

USAGE

METHODS

get

Returns a response object Geo::WebService::OpenCellID::Response::cell::get.

  my $response=$gwo->cell->get(key=>$myapikey,
                               mnc=>1,
                               mcc=>2,
                               lac=>200,
                               cellid=>234);

Documentation from: http://www.opencellid.org/api

Get the position of a specific cell http://www.opencellid.org/cell/get?key=myapikey&mnc=1&mcc=2&lac=200&cellid=234

  Where:
    key: The apikey
    mcc: mobile country code (decimal)
    mnc: mobile network code (decimal)
    lac: locale area code (decimal)
    cellid: value of the cell id 

lac can be ommitted. However, if cellid is not present or if cellid i unkown, a defaut return will be based on lac information, but with a much lower accuracy. In that case, cellid return will be -1.

The postion is returned in xml format by the web service but this package wraps this return in a blessed object.

Example: http://www.opencellid.org/cell/get?mcc=250&mnc=99&cellid=29513&lac=0

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
  <rsp stat="ok">
    <cell nbSamples="38"
          lat="57.8240013122559"
          lon="28.00119972229"
          range="6000"
          mcc="250"
          mnc="99"
          lac="0"
          cellId="29513" /> 
  </rsp>

Note: nbSamples=0 is very common!

getMeasures

Returns a response object Geo::WebService::OpenCellID::Response::cell::getMeasures

  my $response=$gwo->cell->getMeasures(key=>$myapikey,
                                       mnc=>1,
                                       mcc=>2,
                                       lac=>200,
                                       cellid=>234);

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
  <rsp stat="ok">
    <cell nbSamples="1"
          lat="38.865953"
          lon="-77.108595"
          mnc="784"
          mcc="608"
          lac="46156"
          cellId="40072">
      <measure lat="38.865953"
               lon="-77.108595"
               takenOn="Sat Feb 28 06:07:12 +0100 2009"
               takenBy="582" /> 
    </cell>
