help.simplegeo.com/faqs/api-documentation/endpoints

Installation

Open the Terminal or other UNIX shell and type:

sudo gem install sg-ruby

Examples

Start by requiring SimpleGeo and setting your authentication credentials:

require 'simple_geo'
SimpleGeo::Client.set_credentials('token', 'secret')

Getting a record

record = SimpleGeo::Client.get_record('com.simplegeo.global.geonames', '5373629')

Getting multiple records

records = SimpleGeo::Client.get_records('com.simplegeo.global.geonames', ['1234', '5678'])

Adding a record

record = SimpleGeo::Record.new({
  :id => '1234',
  :created => Time.now,
  :lat => 37.759650000000001,
  :lon => -122.42608,
  :layer => 'com.example.testlayer',
  :properties => {
    :test_property => 'foobar'
  }
})
SimpleGeo::Client.add_record(record)

Updating a record

record = SimpleGeo::Client.get_record('com.example.testlayer', '1234')
record.lat = 40.714269
record.lon = -74.005973
SimpleGeo::Client.add_record(record)

Adding / updating multiple records

records = [
  SimpleGeo::Record.new({
    :id => '1234',
    :created => Time.now,
    :lat => 37.759650000000001,
    :lon => -122.42608,
    :layer => 'com.example.testlayer',
    :properties => {
      :test_property => 'foobar'
    }
  }),
  SimpleGeo::Record.new({
    :id => '5678',
    :created => Time.now,
    :lat => 37.755470000000003,
    :lon => -122.420646,
    :layer => 'com.example.testlayer',
    :properties => {
      :mad_prop => 'baz'
    }
  })
]
SimpleGeo::Client.add_records('com.example.testlayer', records)

Deleting a record

SimpleGeo::Client.delete_record('1234')

Getting a record's history

history = SimpleGeo::Client.get_history('com.example.testlayer', '1234')

Getting nearby records

See help.simplegeo.com/faqs/api-documentation/endpoints for other optional params

# by lat, lon
records = SimpleGeo::Client.get_nearby_records('com.example.testlayer', 
  :lat => 37.759650000000001,
  :lon => -122.42608)

# by geohash
records = SimpleGeo::Client.get_nearby_records('com.example.testlayer', 
  :geohash => '9q8yy1ujcsfm')

Getting a nearby address for a lat and lon

nearby_address = SimpleGeo::Client.get_nearby_address(37.759650000000001, -122.42608)

Getting SpotRank density information

# by day
density_info = SimpleGeo::Client.get_density(37.75965, -122.42608, 'sat')

# by hour
density_info = SimpleGeo::Client.get_density(37.75965, -122.42608, 'sat', '16' )

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
