Geo coordinates are, in fact, one of basic types in XXI century programming.

This gem is a (desperate) attempt to provide such a "basic" type ready to be dropped into any of Ruby code, to unify all different LatLng or Point or Location classes in existing geography and geo-aware gems for easy data exchange and natural usage.

As an independent gem, this attempt is doomed by design, but why not to try?..

Initially, I've done this work as a proposal for inclusion in Ruby's standard library, but it was not met very well. So, now I'm releasing it as a gem to be available at least for my own other projects.

You can read my initial proposal here and discussion in Ruby tracker there.

I still have a small hope it would be part of stdlib once, that's why I preserve the style of specs (outdated rspec, but compatible with mspec used for standard library) and docs (yard in RDoc-compatibility mode).
