Web services made possible to extend the capabilities of a site by using services provided by another site.

There are sites that provide Web services that let you determine the geographic location of an address. There are also sites that provide Web services to determine the time zone of a given geographic location.

This class goes further by combining both kinds of Web services and provide a solution that determines the time zone of a given address.
