Perl module to tie together multiple Geo::Coder modules

GeoCoderMultiple is a wrapper for multiple GeoCoder* modules.

Most free geocoding datasource specify a limit to the number of queries which can be sent from an IP or made using an API key in a 24 hour period. This module balances the incoming requests across the available sources to ensure individual limits are exceeded only when the total limit is exceeded.

The algorithm for load balancing takes into account the limit imposed by the source per 24 hour period.
