    $ npm install meterstodegrees

    The calculations were based on here and here.

    Usage

    console.log(meterstodegrees.lonDegrees(<latitude>, <meters>))
    console.log(meterstodegrees.latDegrees(<latitude>, <meters>))

    Sample Usage

    const meterstodegrees = require("meterstodegrees");
     
    const meters = 1000;
     
    console.log(meterstodegrees.lonDegrees(0, meters));
    // 0.008983155487515939
    // At latitude 0°, 1000 meters on longitude
    // is equivalent to 0.008983155487515939 degrees.
     
    console.log(meterstodegrees.lonDegrees(45, 1000));
    // 0.012682821971791809
    // At latitude 45°, 1000 meters on longitude
    // is equivalent to 0.012682821971791809 degrees.
     
    console.log(meterstodegrees.latDegrees(0, meters));
    // 0.009043695025814083
    // At latitude 0°, 1000 meters on latitude
    // is equivalent to 0.009043695025814083 degrees.
     
    console.log(meterstodegrees.latDegrees(45, 1000));
    // 0.008998328965319496
    // At latitude 45°, 1000 meters on latitude
    // is equivalent to 0.008998328965319496 degrees.
