Geo::Distance is a Perl library aiming to provide as many tools to make
it as simple as possible to calculate distances between geographic
points, and anything that can be derived from that. Currently there is
support for finding the closest locations within a specified distance,
to find the closest number of points to a specified point, and to do
basic point-to-point distance calculations.
NB! The alternative GIS::Distance module is being worked on as a
replacement for this module. In the near future Geo::Distance will
become a lightweight wrapper around GIS::Distance so that legacy code
benefits from fixes to GIS::Distance through the old Geo::Distance API.
For any new development it is recommended to try use GIS::Distance.
