Subject: Bug/Feature request - Query by lat/long
Date: Wed, 4 Mar 2015 11:22:00 -0500
To: bug-Geo-Coder-Bing@rt.cpan.org
From: Justin Fincher <justin.fincher@homes.com>
Howdy,
   Bing REST services allow for queries by point (latitude and longitude), in addition to query by address. Due the the small difference in the way the query is built, I have not found a way to do a query by point with Geo::Coder::Bing. I think this would be a useful feature and would only require a fairly minor tweak.

Standard URL build for address:
   <Bing URL info>/Locations?query_information

Query by point URL build:
   <Bing URL info>/Locations/<lat>,<long>?additional_query_information

Thanks for the awesome module and hope to hear back about your thoughts on this development.

Such a method should probably look like reverse_geocode() in Geo::Coder::Google. See https://metacpan.org/pod/Geo::Coder::Google::V3#reverse_geocode
