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
