Geocoder

Geocoder Logo

Description

Geocoder is a Typescript library which helps you build geo-aware applications by providing a powerful abstraction layer for geocoding manipulations.

Installation

$ npm i @goparrot/geocoder reflect-metadata

⚠️️ Each reflect-metadata installation has its own metadata storage, from which it reads and writes from. So if you had a project with multiple reflect-metadata packages, it could happen that in one file you write metadata in one reflect-metadata package and in another file you’re trying to retrieve this metadata accidently from the other reflect-metadata package, which of course doesn’t exist there.

Usage

Minimal

In the code snippet below we use Google provider.

import 'reflect-metadata';
import { Location, Geocoder, GoogleMapsProvider, Suggestion } from '@goparrot/geocoder';
import Axios, { AxiosInstance } from 'axios';
 
const axios: AxiosInstance = Axios.create();
 
const provider: GoogleMapsProvider = new GoogleMapsProvider(axios, 'YOUR_API_KEY');
 
const geocoder: Geocoder = new Geocoder(provider);
 
(async () => {
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.geocode({
            address: '1158 E 89th St, Chicago, IL 60619, USA',
        });
 
        console.info('locations', locations);
    } catch (err) {
        console.error(err);
    }
 
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.reverse({
            lat: 41.7340186,
            lon: -87.5960762,
        });
 
        console.info('locations', locations);
    } catch (err) {
        console.error(err);
    }
 
     try {
            const suggestions: Suggestion[] = await geocoder.suggest({
                address: '1158 E 89th St',
            });
    
            console.info('suggestions', suggestions);
        } catch (err) {
            console.error(err);
        }
})();

Advanced

In the code snippet below we use Here provider.

import 'reflect-metadata';
import { Location, Geocoder, HereProvider, LoggerInterface } from '@goparrot/geocoder';
import Axios, { AxiosInstance, AxiosRequestConfig, AxiosResponse } from 'axios';
 
// You can use any logger that fits the LoggerInterface
const logger: LoggerInterface = console;
 
// Set timeout for all requests
const axios: AxiosInstance = Axios.create({
    timeout: 5000,
});
 
// You can log all requests
axios.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
    logger.debug('api request', request);
 
    return request;
});
 
// You can log all responses
axios.interceptors.response.use(
    (response: AxiosResponse): AxiosResponse => {
        logger.debug(`api response ${response.status}`, response.data);
 
        return response;
    },
);
 
/**
 * Caching adapter for axios. Store request results in a configurable store to prevent unneeded network requests.
 * @link {https://github.com/RasCarlito/axios-cache-adapter}
 */
 
const provider: HereProvider = new HereProvider(axios, 'YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR_APP_CODE');
 
const geocoder: Geocoder = new Geocoder(provider);
geocoder.setLogger(logger);
 
(async () => {
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.geocode({
            // accuracy: AccuracyEnum.HOUSE_NUMBER,
            address: '1158 E 89th St, Chicago, IL 60619, USA',
            countryCode: 'US',
            // postalCode: '60619',
            // state: 'Illinois',
            // stateCode: 'IL',
            // city: 'Chicago',
            // language: 'en', // default
            // limit: 5, // default
            // fillMissingQueryProperties: true, // default
            // withRaw: false, // default
        });
 
        logger.info('locations', locations);
    } catch (err) {
        logger.error(err);
    }
 
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.reverse({
            // accuracy: AccuracyEnum.HOUSE_NUMBER,
            lat: 41.7340186,
            lon: -87.5960762,
            countryCode: 'US',
            // language: 'en', // default
            // limit: 5, // default     
            // withRaw: false, // default       
        });
 
        console.info('locations', locations);
    } catch (err) {
        console.error(err);
    }
})();

Special Geocoders and Providers

The ChainProvider

The ChainProvider is a special provider that takes a list of providers and iterates over this list to get information. Note that it stops its iteration when a provider returns a result.

import 'reflect-metadata';
import Axios, { AxiosInstance } from 'axios';
import { Location, ChainProvider, HereProvider, MapQuestProvider, ProviderAggregator } from '@goparrot/geocoder';
 
const axios: AxiosInstance = Axios.create({
    timeout: 5000,
});
 
const chainProvider: ChainProvider = new ChainProvider([
    new MapQuestProvider(axios, 'YOUR_API_KEY'),
    new HereProvider(axios, 'YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR_APP_CODE'),
]);
 
const geocoder: ProviderAggregator = new ProviderAggregator([chainProvider]);
 
(async () => {
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.geocode({
            address: '1158 E 89th St, Chicago, IL 60619, USA',
        });
 
        console.info(locations);
    } catch (err) {
        console.error(err);
    }
})();

The ProviderAggregator

The ProviderAggregator is used to register several providers so that you can manualy decide which provider to use later on.

import 'reflect-metadata';
import Axios, { AxiosInstance } from 'axios';
import { Location, GoogleMapsProvider, HereProvider, ProviderAggregator, MapQuestProvider } from '@goparrot/geocoder';
 
const axios: AxiosInstance = Axios.create({
    timeout: 5000,
});
 
const geocoder: ProviderAggregator = new ProviderAggregator([
    new MapQuestProvider(axios, 'YOUR_API_KEY'),
    new HereProvider(axios, 'YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR_APP_CODE'),
]);
 
geocoder.registerProvider(new GoogleMapsProvider(axios, 'YOUR_API_KEY'));
 
(async () => {
    try {
        const locations: Location[] = await geocoder.using(GoogleMapsProvider).geocode({
            address: '1158 E 89th St, Chicago, IL 60619, USA',
        });
 
        console.info(locations);
    } catch (err) {
        console.error(err);
    }
})();

The ProviderAggregator's API is fluent, meaning you can write:

const locations: Location[] = geocoder
    .registerProvider(new MyCustomProvider(axios))
    .using(MyCustomProvider)
    .geocode( ... );

The using() method allows you to choose the provider to use by its class name. When you deal with multiple providers, you may want to choose one of them. The default behavior is to use the first one but it can be annoying.
