gmaps.js module to manage geofences

gmaps.geofences

gmaps.js module to manage geofences*.

*A geofence is a polygon that delimits a zone in a map.

Install

For using with bundlers (as Browserify or Webpack):

npm install gmaps.geofences --save

Before require() this module you need to require('gmaps.core').

For using directly in the browser, download the gmaps.geofences.js (or gmaps.geofences.min.js) in dist.

Usage

You need to register a <script> tag with the Google Maps JavaScript API, then import gmaps.core.

Every Google Maps map needs a container (<div id="map"></div> in this demo), which needs to have width and height, and be visible (without display: none, for example):

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Test</title>
  <script src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=true"></script> 
  <script src="gmaps.core.js"></script> 
  <script src="gmaps.geofences.js"></script> 
  <style type="text/css">
    #map {
      width: 400px;
      height: 400px;
    }
  </style> 
</head>
<body>
  <div id="map"></div>
  <script>
    var map = new GMaps({
      el : '#map',
      lat: -12.0433,
      lng: -77.0283,
      zoom: 12
    });
  </script> 
</body>
</html>

For more examples you can check the tests in this repo.

Documentation

checkGeofence(lat, lng, fence)

Check if a coordinate (lat and lng) is inside the fence. A fence can be an instance of google.maps.Polygon, google.maps.Circle or google.maps.LatLngBounds. For google.maps.Circle, you need to load the Google Maps API with the geometry library.

checkMarkerGeofence(marker, outsideCallback)

Check if a google.map.Marker marker is inside of any of its fences, triggering an outsideCallback if the marker is outside.
