Geocoding Lite 0.1.0 Released

Project links: Github Rubygems

The functionality that the gem gives us is to lookup addresses, zip codes, cities and coordinates in the simplest way possible.

Geocoding is the process of finding associated geographic coordinates (often expressed as latitude and longitude) from other geographic data, such as street addresses, or ZIP codes (postal codes). ~ Wikipedia: Geocoding

Example 1, lookup a city: 'Los Angeles'.geocoding_lookup => [{:address=>"Los Angeles, CA, USA", :lat=>34.0522342, :lng=>-118.2436849, :types=>["locality", "political"]}]

Example 2, lookup by latitude and longitude: [35.68, 139.76].geocoding_lookup.last => {:address=>"Japan", :lat=>36.204824, :lng=>138.252924, :types=>["country", "political"]}
