#' placement: Tools for Accessing the Google Maps API
#' \pkg{placement}
#' The main functions in this package are drive_time (used for calculating distances between physical addresses
#' or coordinates) and geocode_url (used for estimating the lat/long coordinates of a physical address). Optionally,
#' it generates the cryptographic signatures necessary for making API calls with a Google for Work/Premium account
#' within the geocoding process. These accounts have larger quota limits than the "standard_api" and, thus, this package
#' may be useful for individuals seeking to submit large batch jobs within R to the Google Maps API.Placement also
#' provides methods for accessing the standard API using a (free) Google API key
#' (see: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key#get-an-api-key).
