end

Return the URL for a map of the given coordinates.

Not necessarily implemented by all subclasses as only some lookups also provide maps.

#query_url(query) ⇒ Object

URL to use for querying the geocoding engine.

Subclasses should not modify this method. Instead they should define base_query_url and url_query_string. If absolutely necessary to subclss this method, they must also subclass #cache_key.

# File 'lib/geocoder/lookups/base.rb', line 78

def query_url(query)
  base_query_url(query) + url_query_string(query)
end

#required_api_key_partsObject

Array containing string descriptions of keys required by the API. Empty array if keys are optional or not required.

def required_api_key_parts

end

#search(query, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Query the geocoding API and return a Geocoder::Result object. Returns nil on timeout or error.

Takes a search string (eg: “Mississippi Coast Coliseumf, Biloxi, MS”, “205.128.54.202”) for geocoding, or coordinates (latitude, longitude) for reverse geocoding. Returns an array of Geocoder::Results.

    result.cache_hit = @cache_hit if cache
    result
  }
