NAME

Geo::Geotude - OOP for performing geotude location conversions.

SYNOPSIS

 my $lat = '3.106254';
 my $lon = '101.630517';

 my $geo = Geo::Geotude->new('latitude' => $lat, 'longitude' => $lon);
 print $geo->geotude();

 # prints '53281.86.93.30.75.41.67'

DESCRIPTION

Geowhat? A Geotude is : "permanent and hierarchical. [As] a trade-off: A Geotude is less intuitive than address, but more intuitive than latitude/longitude. A Geotude is more precise than address, but less precise than latitude/longitude."

This package provides OOP methods for converting a decimal latitude and longitude in to Geotude and vice versa.

PACKAGE METHODS

__PACKAGE__->new(%args)

Valid arguments are :

  • geotude

    A Geotude string.

    Must be present if neither latitude or longitude are defined.

  • latitude

    A latitude, in decimal format.

    Must be present if longitude is defined.

  • longitude

    A longitude, in decimal format.

    Must be present if latitude is defined.

Returns a Geo::Geotude object.

OBJECT METHODS

$obj->point()

Returns a comma-separated string when called in a scalar context.

When called in an array context, returns a list containing decimal latitude and longitude.

$obj->geotude()

Returns a geotude string when called in scalar context.

When called in an array context, returns a list containing the major and minor (or sub) geotudes.
