Google Geocoding

Provides an abstraction for requests to Google Maps geocoding service.

Installation

You can install this package via Composer using this command:

composer require ConstructionJobs/google-geocoder

Laravel Installation

This package comes with a service provider for use with Laravel. You will not need to do anything if you're using laravel version 5.5 and up.

If you are using laravel 5.4 or below, to install the service provider:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    // other providers
    'ConstructionJobs\GoogleGeocoder\GoogleGeocoderServiceProvider'
];

Also you must publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="ConstructionJobs\GoogleGeocoder\GoogleGeocoderServiceProvider"

The config file allows you to set your api key, language and region.

Usage

There are three ways that you may use this package.

// Geocode an address
$geocoder = new Geocoder;
$geocoder->geocode('New York, NY');

// Reverse geocode from coordinates
$geocoder = new Geocoder;
$geocoder->reverseByCoordinates(40.7127837, -74.0059413);

// Reverse geocode from a Google place id.
$geocoder = new Geocoder;
$geocoder->reverseByPlaceId('ChIJOwg_06VPwokRYv534QaPC8g');

All of these methods return a standard response format as follows:

[
    'address' => 'New York, NY, USA',
    'latitude' => 40.7127837,
    'longitude' => -74.0059413,
    'place_id' => ChIJOwg_06VPwokRYv534QaPC8g,
    'types' => [
        'locality',
        'political'
    ]
    $bounds = [
        'northeast' => [
            'latitude' => 40.9152555,
            'longitude' => -73.7002721,
        ],
        'southwest' => [
            'latitude' => 40.496044,
            'longitude' => -74.255735,
        ]
    ];
}
