li3_location

Lithium library to retrieve information about geo locations

Installation

Add a submodule to your li3 libraries:

git submodule add git@github.com:bruensicke/li3_location.git libraries/li3_location

and activate it in you app (config/bootstrap/libraries.php), of course:

Libraries::add('li3_location');

Setup

You must register for a Yahoo application here.

Then, you need to setup your app_id like this:

Location::$app_id = 'foo';

Now you can do something like that:

Location::find('Hannover,Germany');

and get something back, that may look like:

Array
(
    [quality] => 40
    [latitude] => 52.372278
    [longitude] => 9.738157
    [offsetlat] => 52.372278
    [offsetlon] => 9.738157
    [radius] => 17500
    [boundingbox] => Array
        (
            [north] => 52.454731
            [south] => 52.305531
            [east] => 9.920940
            [west] => 9.606850
        )

    [name] => 
    [line1] => 
    [line2] => Hannover
    [line3] => 
    [line4] => Deutschland
    [house] => 
    [street] => 
    [xstreet] => 
    [unittype] => 
    [unit] => 
    [postal] => 
    [neighborhood] => 
    [city] => Hannover
    [county] => Region Hannover

    [country] => Deutschland
    [countrycode] => DE
    [statecode] => NI
    [countycode] => 
    [timezone] => Europe/Berlin
    [areacode] => 511
    [uzip] => 30159
    [hash] => 
    [woeid] => 657169
    [woetype] => 7
)

And hopefully, you have a smile in your face. Have fun.
