Deliantra Free MMORPG
The free as in beer, liberal, code & content retro-style graphical MMORPG :)


This is a single-purpose module that tries to do one job: find the nearest placename for a point on earth. It doesn't claim to do a perfect job, but it tries to be simple to set up, simple to use and be fast. It doesn't attempt to provide many features or nifty algorithms, and is meant to be used in situations where you simply need a name for a coordinate without becoming a GIS expert first.


 my $lookup = Geo::LatLon2Place->new ("allCountries.ll2p");

 # and then do as many queries as you wish:
 my $res = $lookup->(49, 8.4);
