NAME

revgeod - reverse-geo lookup daemon

revgeoc - lookup client for revgeod

SYNOPSIS

revgeod [-v]

revgeoc stats|dump|lookup|kill|test

DESCRIPTION

revgeod is a reverse Geo lookup daemon thing, accessible via HTTP and backed via OpenCage, our geocoder of choice. You'll need an OpenCage API key exported into the environment, and you can specify revgeod's listen IP address and port which default to 127.0.0.1 and 8865 respectively.

The (curently hardcoded) geocache directory must exist and be writeable by the owner of the rungeod process; that's where the LMDB database is stored. revgeod caches OpenCage's responses (they explicitly permit this):

revgeoc is the client program which speaks HTTP to revgeod.

EXAMPLE

$ curl -i 'http://127.0.0.1:8865/rev?lat=48.85593&lon=2.29431'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Length: 163
Content-type: application/json
Date: Wed, 23 Jan 2019 14:08:43 GMT

{
    "address": {
    "village": "4 r du Général Lambert, 75015 Paris, France",
    "locality": "Paris",
    "cc": "FR",
    "s": "opencage"
    }
}

A second query for the same location would respond with lmdb instead of opencage as the source, indicating it's been cached.

ENDPOINTS

All revgeod API endpoints are obtained via GET requests, and the client program revgeoc uses the same words as its commands.

rev

The /rev endpoint is used to perform a reverse-geo lookup and cache the positive result. This endpoint supports the following query parameters:

  • lat= specify the latitude as a decimal (mandatory)
  • lon= specify the longitude as a decimal (mandatory)
  • app= specifies an "application" for which query statistics should be collected (see statistics below) (optional)

stats

revgeod provides statistics on its /stats endpoint, and it collects counters by application if the app query parameter is specified during lookups:

{
   "stats": {
      "_whoami": "revgeod.c",
      "_version": "0.1.8",
      "stats": 8,
      "requests": 13647,
      "geocode_failed": 9,
      "opencage": 13624,
      "lmdb": 23
   },
   "apps": {
      "recorder": 13,
      "clitest": 5,
      "jp0": 2
   },
   "uptime": 381258,
   "uptime_s": "4 days, 9 hours, 54 mins",
   "tst": 1544555424,
   "db_path": "/usr/local/var/revgeod/geocache/",
   "db_entries": 43756,
   "db_size": 7532544
}

dump

The /dump endpoint produces a full dump of the underling database in JSON format as an array of objects, each containing a geohash, the cached address information, and lat and lon elements which are the latitude and longitude respectively which have been decoded from the entries' geohash. Note that this means that the values are not those from which the entry originally resulted.

lookup

This endpoint expects geohash query parameter with a geohash of precision 8; the key is looked up in the database and the JSON data or HTTP status code 404 are returned.

kill

Similarly to lookup, /kill also expects a geohash and removes it from the database.

OPTIONS

revgeod understands the following global options.

-v
show version information and exit

ENVIRONMENT

revgeo_verbose
if this variable is set when revgeoc starts, the program displays received HTTP headers

OPENCAGE_APIKEY
this mandatory variable must be set in revgeod's environment for it to do reverse geo lookups.

REVGEO_IP
optionally sets the listen address for revgeod; defaults to 127.0.0.1 and we strongly recommend this is not changed to anything other than a loopback address.

REVGEO_PORT
optionally sets the TCP listen port to something other than the default 8865.

REVGEO_HOST
optionally sets the hostname/address for revgeoc; defaults to 127.0.0.1 and REVGEO_PORT
