Location[edit]

Somewhere in the Mannheim graticule. Overfly the region.

Planning[edit]

Fly from London, Stansted to Paphos, Cyprus visiting 50 graticules on the route. Hope to hit a hashpoint by chance.

Expedition - Fail[edit]

Why Mannheim? Well it recently became the most active graticule in the world by coordinates-reached - congratulations. And Sourcerer has been watching your activities with interest for several years. Hi everyone! And this report might be read by several geohashers. And I don't want to write 50 expedition reports.

Commercial flights can be boring but an expedition of 50 graticules at around 12 per hour passes the time quite nicely. In Mannheim, I passed 31 km north of the hashpoint between Wiesloch and Rauenberg.

The expedition failed but came close in several graticules. Canterbury, close to home, was the closest approach. I was under 5 hash units from the hashpoint. For an air geohash, a hash unit is 310 metres.

  • 51 1 - 1.48 km - Screen grab not done
  • 50 5 - 4.1 km
  • 47 12 - 7.91 km
  • 45 15 - 4.26 km
  • 43 18 - 9.9 km
  • 38 25 - 2.9 km

A year ago, on a similar flight, I was successful over 2018-01-31 43 19. I have guestimated that on this path there is between 13% and 25% chance of hitting a hashpoint.

I used my KML generator and Google Earth Desktop to get the main image with nearly 500 hashpoints. This only involved three download and file opening steps. Useful!
