NOTICE: This package is just getting off the ground, and is not even available in CVS yet. It is planned to be a simple Liberty Service. If you are interested in this package, have questions, or want to contribute, contact wjames5 on IRC #bitweaver on freenode.net

The Geo Package is a simple Liberty Service that a package can use to retrieve, store, and otherwise geographic data for any content. Geo Package adds three data fields for any content: Latitude, Longitude, and Elevation.

What the Geo Package is NOT

The Geo Package does not do geocoding, it does not store addresses, and it does not provide map visualization. The Geo Package only stores lat/lng pairs and elevation values. Geocoding must be obtained from outside the Geo Package, likewise if you have an address you want to store, it must be stored somewhere other than in the Geo Package table. If you are looking for map visualization, you may find the GmapPackage, which uses the Google Maps API, will suite your needs.

Some Questions on Developing a Liberty Service

When should a service function be its own process and when should it use the class method?

Why is &$pObject several service funtions, but never accessed inside the function?
