Skeet shooting ground, eastern outskirts of Malmö.



Check out the hash after work.


Last week I was staying on the island of Bornholm which despite its small size is situated in four graticules. During my stay between June 18 and 25, the geohashing algorithm effectively missed the island. What a drag!

Today was the last day of June and I had not been to a geohash for the whole month. Luckily today’s coordinates struck a seemingly easy spot to reach in the outskirts of Malmö.

I was not entirely sure what kind of place it was going to be when I left work in the evening. I knew it was going to be in an open grassy space close to some small buildings. Probably training ground for dogs or similar.

When I arrived it turned out to be a skeet shooting ground and yes - people were blazing away! The geohash spot was right in the line of fire so I chickened out 18 meters from target and had to settle with the consolidation prize for cowards.

by chickening out on the (55, 13) geohash on 2011-06-30 because fear of getting shot.
