  • PHP 5.3

Installation Instructions

Extract all files into the 'geocoding' folder under your Silverstripe root, or install using composer

composer require "tractorcow/silverstripe-geocoding": "3.0.*@dev"

Usage


// Instance is explicitly created here, but it's better to have this as an injected dependency
$address = '123 Fake Street, Fakuranga, New Fakeland';
$service = Injector::inst()->get('GeocodingService');
$result = $service->geocode($address);

if($result['Success']) {
    $latitude = $result['Latitude'];
    $longitude = $result['Longitude'];
    echo "Found address at $latitude,$longitude";
} else {
    user_error("Could not geocode address: ".$result['Message'], E_USER_ERROR);
}
