Photon

Photon is a free and open-source API hosted by Komoot and powered by ElasticSearch. It returns data from the OpenStreetMap project, which is licensed under the ODbL License.

The API is available at photon.komoot.io and licensed under the Apache 2.0 License.

Important: Please be aware of the Terms and Use of Photon! It is free to use, so please be fair and avoid excessive requests!

Usage

In your cargo.toml, include this:

[dependencies]
photon-geocoding = { version = "1.1.0" }

Forward geocoding:

use photon_geocoding::{PhotonApiClient, PhotonFeature};

let api: PhotonApiClient = PhotonApiClient::default();
let result: Vec<PhotonFeature> = api.forward_search("munich", None).unwrap();

Reverse geocoding:

use photon_geocoding::{PhotonApiClient, PhotonFeature};

let api: PhotonApiClient = PhotonApiClient::default();
let result: Vec<PhotonFeature> = api.reverse_search(LatLon::new(48.123, 11.321), None).unwrap();

Self-hosted instances (custom URL):

use photon_geocoding::PhotonApiClient;

let api: PhotonApiClient = PhotonApiClient::new("https://example.com");
// requests will now go to https://example.com/api and https://example.com/reverse

Filters:

use photon_geocoding::filter::{ForwardFilter, PhotonLayer};
use photon_geocoding::{BoundingBox, LatLon, PhotonApiClient};

let api: PhotonApiClient = PhotonApiClient::default();
let filter = ForwardFilter::new()
    .language("FR")
    .bounding_box(BoundingBox {
        south_west: LatLon::new(40.0, 10.0),
        north_east: LatLon::new(50.0, 15.0),
    })
    .layer(vec![PhotonLayer::City, PhotonLayer::State])
    .additional_query(vec![("osm_tag", "!key:value")]);

let results = api.forward_search("munich", Some(filter)).unwrap();

// resulting query string: "q=munich&bbox=10%2C40%2C15%2C50&lang=fr&layer=city&layer=state&osm_tag=%21key%3Avalue"

All requests are performed in blocking mode, so no async behavior is involved. However, the PhotonApiClient is thread-safe, so you can safely choose to do multiple requests in parallel using the same instance.

Features and Bugs

Feel free to open a new issue! I am always happy to improve this package.

As I am fairly new to Rust, please also don't hesitate to suggest improvements on code style and/or usability (especially regarding ownership, borrowing etc.)!
