The Columbus Graticules

Today's Locations:

Columbus, OH is split by the 40th North parallel and the 83rd West meridian into four graticules. The intersection is in the Ohio State University campus area. Thus, Columbus geohashers have a choice of four geohashes on any given day.

Columbus also has a Facebook Group.

Local Geohashers[edit]

Chris & Alex live a bit north of OSU in (40°,-83°).

Kantisto is young and ridiculously fresh to the idea of geohashing. It might be a while before he gets off the ground.
