Bio
Dabbling in various computational problems since 1998, especially in Computational Geometry and Natural Language Processing.
Perl is one of the best tools for hitting the nail on the head all the way into the heart of such problems. (I know that sounds violent, but the heart of a problem can't possibly be a good thing.)
That is why, I love perl.

3dgeonames - A 3d open location code written in perl5 — 20 minutes; accepted

Location encoding has gained a lot of attention lately, from newer iterations of the popular geohash algorithm, to serious commercial efforts like what3words, to new and revisited open source systems like Google's plus codes. Still, nobody has tackled the problem of 3d location encoding, yet, although there is an obvious use case for it with the growing popularity of 3d mapping. 3dgeonames is the 3d version of the perl5 module Geo::Code. It produces location codes for latitude,longitude,elevation triplets with a resolution of 1 meter for an elevation of up/down to +- 17576 metres. This talk expands of the use case and methodology used to solve this problem.
