This class can search for geographic places using GeoNames API.

It can send HTTP requests to the GeoNames API Web server to perform searches for geographic locations.

Currently, it can retrieve the:

- States of a given country

- Cities with a given name

The class can cache the query results to avoid calling the GeoNames API multiple times to query the same information.



Php Geoname search wrapper, to help reduce too much api call


Installation is super-easy via Composer:

composer require peterujah/geo-name-search


First you have to create an account with geoname to acquire api username

Initialize GeoNameSearch with geoname api username

$geo = new \Peterujah\NanoBlock\GeoNameSearch("username");

List all states in any country Nigeria


List all cities in any sates Enugu


Search geoname with query and country

$geo->query("Query", "Country");
