Haversine-Geolocation

NPM

License: MIT Travis CI

Introduction

If you need to calculate the distance between two points or you want to find closest from position to your current location let me introduce haversine-geolocation module. It based on the Haversine Formula:

haversine

Formula

haversine_2

Pseudocode

dlon = lon2 - lon1 
dlat = lat2 - lat1 
a = (sin(dlat/2))^2 + cos(lat1) * cos(lat2) * (sin(dlon/2))^2 
c = 2 * atan2( sqrt(a), sqrt(1-a) ) 
d = R * c (where R is the radius of the Earth)
 
R = 6367 km OR 3956 mi

Installation

NPM

npm install haversine-geolocation --save

Basic usage

Importing:

import HaversineGeolocation from 'haversine-geolocation';

API:

Is geolocation available:

HaversineGeolocation.isGeolocationAvailable()
    .then(data => {
        const currentPoint = {
            latitude: data.coords.latitude,
            longitude: data.coords.longitude,
            accuracy: data.coords.accuracy
        };
    });

Calculate distance between two points:

const points = [
    {
        latitude: 61.5322204,
        longitude: 28.7515963
    },
    {
        latitude: 51.9971208,
        longitude: 22.1455439
    }
];
 
// Distance in miles
HaversineGeolocation.getDistanceBetween(points[0], points[1], 'mi'); // 704.1 mi
 
// Distance in meters
HaversineGeolocation.getDistanceBetween(points[0], points[1], 'm'); // 1133062.7 m
 
// Distance in kilometers(default value)
HaversineGeolocation.getDistanceBetween(points[0], points[1]); // 1133.1 km

Calculate the closest position to user:

Will return all existed properties with a small nested object haversine: { distance: val, measurement: 'val' }

 
const locationPoints = [
    {
        id: 1,
        title: 'Point 1',
        latitude: 61.5322204,
        longitude: 28.7515963
    },
    {
        id: 2,
        title: 'Point 2',
        latitude: 51.9971208,
        longitude: 22.1455439
    },
    {
        id: 3,
        title: 'Point 3',
        latitude: 45.3571207,
        longitude: 30.3435456
    }
];
 
HaversineGeolocation.isGeolocationAvailable()
    .then(data => {
        const currentPoint = {
            latitude: data.coords.latitude,
            longitude: data.coords.longitude,
            accuracy: data.coords.accuracy
        };
        
        HaversineGeolocation.getClosestPosition(
            currentPoint, 
            locationPoints,
            'mi'
        );
    });

Expected response:

    {
        "id": 3,
        "title": "Point 3",
        "latitude": 45.3571207,
        "longitude": 30.3435456,
        "haversine": {
            "distance": 49,
            "measurement": "mi"
        }
    }
