Cool! I might suggest Geomag:: or Geomagnetism:: as a namespace. Thoughts, anyone?

    Yeah... I haven't really given the namespace much thought as of yet. I typically do that when I'm close to a release.

    Any/all naming suggestions welcome. We'll let the original author make the final decision :)

      How fast does the data change? Would you need to find a realtime source of the latest data to incorporate it into your module? Or would you re-issue the module year by year?

      I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. ..... an animated JAPH

        The source that is being used currently is updated at five year intervals (next one is last day of 2019).

        I thought about using JSON data, and/or some other mechanism to auto-update, but for now I just put a test in for current localtime year so that if I don't modify anything and I forget when the date hits, CPAN testers will barf an email to me as a reminder :)
