Many Web sites are accessed by users from around the world, each one in at a different time zone.

Sometimes it is necessary to schedule a event or otherwise tell the time when something important is going to happen at a specific time of the day at the user's location.

Since the time of the day at the users location will be different according to the user time zone, it is necessary to know the time zone on which the location of the users are.

This class can solve that problem using the user's geographic coordinates: latitude and longitude.

These coordinates can usually be determined from the IP address of the computer the user is using to access the site, using services like IP to location.

This way it is possible to determine the time where the user is located, departing from the IP address and using this class to determine the time zone from the IP address location.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.


 



The package PHP Time Zone Mapper is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Get time zone for a given latitude and longitude

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This class can get the time zone for a given latitude and longitude.

It takes the geographic coordinates of a given location and determines what is the time zone in that place.

This is a PHP version of a similar component by Dr. Tim Cooper.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
