README

Geocalc

Build Status Hex.pm

Documentation: http://hexdocs.pm/geocalc

Calculate distance, bearing and more between latitude/longitude points

All the formulas are adapted from http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong.html

Installation

First, add Geocalc to your mix.exs dependencies:

def deps do
  [{:geocalc, "~> 0.5"}]
end

And then fetch your dependencies:

$ mix deps.get

Usage

Calculate distance (in meters) between 2 points

Geocalc.distance_between([50.0663889, -5.7147222], [58.6438889, -3.07])
# => 968853.5464535094

Calculate if point is inside a circle given by a center point and a radius (in meters)

san_juan = [18.4655, 66.1057]
puerto_rico = [18.2208, 66.5901]
Geocalc.within?(170_000, san_juan, puerto_rico)
# => true

Geocalc.Point protocol

Everything which implements Geocalc.Point protocol can be passed as a point argument for any function in this library. We already have implementations for List, Tuple and Map. You can define your own implementations if you need, everything we need to know to do calculations are latitude and longitude.

Geocalc.DMS

Geocalc.DMS is a struct which contains degrees, minutes and seconds, which also can be used in Geocalc.Point.

Additionally now there is an options to convert Geocalc.DMS to decimal degrees.

dms = %Geocalc.DMS{hours: 13, minutes: 31, seconds: 59.998, direction: "N"}
Geocalc.DMS.to_decimal(dms)
# => 13.533332777777778
