The Houston, Texas graticule is located around latitude 29, longitude -95. This area is mostly land, with only a small portion of Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico in its southeast corner. The graticule contains a large portion of Harris County including all points inside Sam Houston Toll Road/Beltway 8, most of Fort Bend and Brazoria Counties, and a small portion of Galveston County. There is a category of all of our geohashes, their pages, and the maps of the locations.
