Geo Hashing:Community Portal/Renaming suggestions
The following is a list of renaming suggestions for graticules, based on the geonames.org database, based strictly on city size. Many of them are just
- differences in transcription
- split cities that have named two graticules
- split cities that have not been considered because they are only partly in the graticule in question
- or there are other excellent reasons not to name a graticule after the largest city it contains.
but some of the suggestions are actually reasonable. If you happen to have a lazy afternoon/evening, feel free to browse this list, compare population sizes in wikipedia or whatever better source you have available, and to confirm or disprove these suggestions.
If you can confirm any renaming suggestion as sensible, please try to
- in the case of USA, Canada or Australia: identify the correct state for the graticule.
- contact any local geohashers and ask them for their opinion (if there are any, wait for a response before proceeding).
- change the name of the graticule on the correct subpage in the Category:All graticules.
- move the old graticule page to the new name.
Mark the graticule below as
- (confirmed) - yes, the suggested city is larger that the current namesake
- (moved) - the change has been made
- (not to be moved) - the graticule is not to be renamed, for other reasons (please specify)
or simply remove it from the list, if it is completely irrelevant (e.g. in the case of transcription differences).
The first name on the line is the PROPOSED new name. The second name is the CURRENT name.

I don't think it's a good idea to switch scripts unless everything is going to be in its native script. 61,-160: Tuluksak, Alaska for Kalskag, Alaska. 61,-156: Stony River, Alaska for Stony River - Big Lake, Alaska. 61,-148: Lazy Mountain, Alaska for Sutton, Alaska. 61,-48: Grønnedal, Greenland for Kangilinnguit, Greenland. 61,-6: Argir, Faroe Islands for Tvoroyri, Faroe Islands. 61,4: Kalvåg, Norway for Bremanger, Norway. 61,8: Lom, Norway for Fossbergom, Norway. 61,12: Trysil, Norway for Innbygda, Norway. 61,29: Kerimäki, Finland for Punkaharju, Finland.

In areas as sparsely settled as this, it makes sense to name graticules after large parks or geographical features that span most of the graticule rather than hamlets. If geohashers a few graticules away were planning a visit, what would they call it? 57,-136: Pelican, Alaska for Lisianski Inlet, Alaska. 57,-133: Hobart Bay, Alaska for Port Houghton, Alaska. 57,-6: Portree, United Kingdom for Skye, United Kingdom. 56,-169: Saint George, Alaska for St. George, Alaska. 56,-158: Chignik Lake, Alaska for Chignik, Alaska. 56,-133: Kake, Alaska for Keku Strait, Alaska. 56,-132: Petersburg, Alaska for Wrangell, Alaska. 56,-5: Fort William, United Kingdom for Oban, United Kingdom. 56,-3: Kirkcaldy, United Kingdom for Perth, United Kingdom. 56,11: Liseleje, Denmark for Anholt, Denmark.

The Wrocław Old Town's Main Square center is approx. at 51.110, 17.032 so the 17th meridian cuts the city almost through its center. Also Wrocław is known internationally a lot more than either Legnica or Ostrów. 51,24: Kovel', Ukraine for Kovel, Ukraine. 51,30: Славутич, Ukraine for Slavutych, Ukraine. :Cyrillics again! Graticule names shouldn't be in other scripts. 50,-5: Falmouth, UK for Camborne, United Kingdom. 50,-2: Poole, UK for Weymouth, United Kingdom. 50,4: Brussels, BE for Bruxelles, Belgium. :Proposing a third variant: "Bruxelles/Brussel, Belgium". Brussels has a french majority, but is officially bilingual. Since language issues are very important to both Flemic and Wallonians (there is no such thing as a Belgian*) and using the wrong one can get you killed, I think it's appropriate to use the double spelling here. [Ekorren] (* Actually there are twelve Belgians: The king and the soccer national team.)
49,-106: Gravelbourg, Canada for Lafleche, Saskatchewan. 49,-101: Carnduff, Canada for Redvers, Saskatchewan. 49,-100: Virden, Canada for Souris, Manitoba. wmcduff: Leaning towards yes.

Debatable, Konstanz is actually larger. 47,10: Kempten (Allgäu), Germany for Kempten, Germany. Debatable, although the other places named Kempten are entirely unknown. 47,21: Oradea, Romania for Debrecen, Hungary. While the cities have similar sizes, i'd suggest letting this one remain as-is, since a large part of the graticule is in Hungary. -- CrystyB 46,-123: Aberdeen, USA for Astoria, Oregon. - Objection :I'd say Astoria is better known 46,-119: Kennewick, USA for Tri Cities, Washington. - Objection :I'd say Tri Cities is better known 46,-117: Lewiston, USA for Pullman, Washington. 46,-116: Lewiston Orchards, USA for Lewiston, Idaho. 46,-112: Butte, USA for Helena, Montana.

Helena may be more recognizable. 46,-109: Harlowton, USA for Harlowtown, Montana. To be moved. Harlowton is the correct spelling, Harlowtown just a typo. 46,-107: Hysham, USA for Custer, Montana. To be moved. Hysham is larger and more central. 46,-101: New Salem, USA for Flasher, North Dakota. Debatable. New Salem is larger, but Flasher is more central.

Note: "Kolozsvár" is the (historical) Hungarian name. -- CrystyB 46,143: Novikovo, Russia for Ozerskoye, Russia. :Ozerskoye seems to be about twice as big. No reason to move really. 45,-117: Union, USA for Enterprise, Oregon. Debatable. The population difference is negligible, Enterprise is more central, but Union County is also part of the grat. 45,-109: Red Lodge, USA for Columbus, Montana. Debatable. Red Lodge is slightly larger and less easily confused with other grats, but Columbus is somewhat more central. 45,-106: Colstrip, USA for Lame Deer, Montana. Debatable. Colstrip is slightly larger and a town rather than CDP, but Lame Deer is more central. 45,-101: North Eagle Butte, USA for Dupree, South Dakota. 45,-99: Gettysburg, USA for Hoven, South Dakota. While Gettysburg is larger, it is also on the grat's edge. Perhaps rename it to Eureka, a city as central as Hoven but closer in size to Gettysburg? 45,-97: Sisseton, USA for Webster, South Dakota. Debatable. Sisseton is slightly larger, but Webster is more central. 45,-95: Willmar, USA for Alexandria, Minnesota. Debatable.

Renfrew is more central, and Carleton Place feels like a far-flung neighbourhood of Ottawa to me. 45,-74: Saint-Jérôme, Canada for Saint-Jérôme West, Québec. wmcduff: Saint-Jérôme is split by the border. I'd say neither and look at Lachute or Dorion, perhaps. 45,-70: Lac-Mégantic, Canada for Stratton, Maine. 45,-67: Calais, USA for Dumbarton, New Brunswick. wmcduff: Disagree. St. Stephen, New Brunswick is larger than Calais. 45,-61: Antigonish, Canada for Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. wmcduff: Debatable.

Brockville is 20K to Ogdensburg's 10K. 44,-74: Massena, USA for Potsdam, New York. Probably to be moved. While Potsdam may be more recognizable, Massena is larger, and Potsdam is partly cut off by the grat border. 44,-72: Barre, USA for Montpelier, Vermont. Debatable. While Barre has more residents, Montpelier is the state capital and thus more recognizable to those outside the region, as well as slightly more central. 44,-71: Berlin, USA for Gorham, New Hampshire.

I seem to hear them as one city all the time as of late. 43,-78: Oshawa, Canada for Lockport, New York. 43,-74: Gloversville, USA for Hamilton County, New York. Probably to be moved, as it seems like grats are generally named after towns, not counties. 43,-73: Saratoga Springs, USA for Glens Falls, New York. Probably to be moved. While Glens Falls is more central, Saratoga Springs is larger and more recognizable. 43,-72: Rutland, VT for Claremont, New Hampshire. Probably to be moved.

However, Claremont is more central. 43,-71: East Concord, USA for Concord, New Hampshire. 43,-9: Camariñas, Spain for Muxía, Spain. 43,-6: Castrillón, Spain for Valdés, Spain. 43,-1: San Sebastián, Spain for Bayonne, France. 43,6: Fréjus, France for Draguignan, France. 43,9: Capraia Isola, Italy for Capraia, Italy. 43,19: Pec, Serbia for Prijepolje, Serbia. 43,25: Ruse, Bulgaria for Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria.

Note: Malokurilskoye is the largest settlement on Shikotan, the largest of the islands in this graticule, as the page says itself. 42,-107: Jeffrey City, USA for Bairoil, Wyoming. Debatable. The population difference is negligible, as is the centrality difference. 42,-102: Alliance, USA for Rushville, Nebraska. Probably to be moved.

Roy is bigger, but is closer to the graticule border. 41,-108: Superior, USA for Table Rock, Wyoming. To be moved. Table Rock is now a ghost town, with no population, making Superior a good option despite being near the grat border. (Point of Rocks, the other city in the grat, has a population of 3, as opposed to Superior's several hundred.) 41,-102: Sidney, USA for Chappell, Nebraska. Debatable.

Nebraska City is larger, but the grat is slightly more Iowa, and Shenandoah is more central. 40,-94: Maryville, MO for Bedford, Iowa. Probably to be moved. Maryville is significantly larger than Bedford, and the grat's cut in half between the two states. 40,-93: Trenton, USA for Princeton, Missouri. Debatable. While Trenton is larger, Princeton is more central. 40,-88: Champaign, USA for Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. Debatable. While Champaign is the bigger of the two cities, they're often referred to together (like the Twin Cities), often in the context of University of Illinois. 40,-83: Marion, USA for Marysville, Ohio.

While Santaquin is bigger, it's also near the grat border. 39,-106: Edwards, USA for Vail, Colorado. Debatable. Edwards is bigger, but Vail is home to a well-known ski resort. 39,-105: Lakewood, USA for Denver (SW), Colorado. 39,-104: Denver, USA for Denver (SE), Colorado. 39,-101: Colby, USA for Goodland, Kansas. Debatable. While Colby is slightly larger, it's also closer to the grat border. 39,-100: Oskaloosa, USA for Grinnell, Kansas. While Oskaloosa is bigger than Grinnell, Grinnell is home to a fairly well-known liberal arts college, making this one debatable. 39,-99: Norton, USA for Stockton, Kansas. Debatable. While Norton is bigger, Stockton is more central. 39,-98: Beloit, USA for Osborne, Kansas. Debatable. While Beloit is larger, Osborne is more central and the name of one of the counties. 39,-97: Concordia, USA for Belleville, Kansas. Probably to be moved.

Jasper is somewhat larger, Bedford somewhat more central. 38,-84: Lexington-Fayette, USA for Frankfort, Kentucky. Lexington is much bigger than Frankfort, although it's on the edge of the grat... while it's a part of the official name, is the -Fayette needed? 38,-83: Maysville, USA for Morehead, Kentucky.

To be moved. Searcy has more residents, and other factors are roughly equal. 35,-90: Memphis, USA for West Memphis, Tennessee. 35,-89: Bartlett, USA for East Memphis, Tennessee. Let Memphis stay split, although I'd prefer Memphis East and Memphis West :Agreed, that's more consistent - Jevanyn 35,-76: River Road, USA for Belhaven, North Carolina. 35,-5: Tangier, Morocco for Tanger, Morocco. Tanger is the local name 35,-3: Tirhanimîne, Morocco for Hoceima, Morocco. 35,-1: 'Aïn Temouchent, Algeria for Aïn Témouchent, Algeria. 35,1: Sougueur, Algeria for Tiaret, Algeria. 35,4: Bordj Ghdir, Algeria for M'Sila, Algeria. 35,8: Kasserine, Tunisia for Tébessa, Algeria. 35,9: Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia for Sbeitla, Tunisia. 35,11: Zouila, Tunisia for Mahdia, Tunisia. 35,14: Birkirkara, MT for Malta. 35,23: Kíssamos, Greece for Kastelli-Kissamou, Greece. 35,25: Irákleion, Greece for Iráklio, Greece. 35,26: Siteía, Greece for Sitia, Greece. 35,27: Kárpathos, Greece for Karpathos, Greece. 35,32: Morphou, CY for Güzelyurt, Cyprus. 35,33: Nicosia, CY for Lefkosia, Cyprus. 35,34: Protaras, CY for Rizokarpaso, Cyprus. 35,126: Kwangju, KR for Gwangju, South Korea. 35,127: Chŏnju, KR for Jeonju, South Korea. 35,128: Taegu, KR for Daegu, South Korea. 35,129: Pusan, KR for Busan, South Korea. 35,138: Fuji, JP for Mount Fuji, Japan. Not to be moved. Or it may be moved to Fujisan, Japan. 34,-119: Oxnard, USA for Santa Barbara, California. Oxnard is more populous than Santa Barbara, and which of the two is more recognizable is debatable. :Certainly Santa Barbara is more recognizable and historically significant. After all that most excellent TV show Psych is conspicuously set here. Although if we were going after recognizable we would have to add Ojai into the mix. I lean towards keeping it Santa Barbara, but the only active hasher is working out of the greater Oxnard area. --Scerruti ::And the largest feature is Los Padres National Park. I'd recommend listing the names of larger towns like Oxnard on the page itself, just so a search for Oxnard will hit the page (it doesn't hit anything now.) -- Jevanyn :::Is this a vote to leave it Santa Barbara? -- Scerruti 34,-109: Pinetop-Lakeside, USA for Eagar, Arizona. 34,-108: Pinehill, USA for Quemado, New Mexico. 34,-107: Alamo, USA for Magdalena, New Mexico. 34,-99: Altus, USA for Vernon, Texas. 34,-94: De Queen, USA for Mena, Arkansas. Debatable. De Queen has slightly more people, but Mena is more central. 34,-90: Southaven, USA for Clarksdale, Mississippi. 34,-89: Olive Branch, USA for Oxford, Mississippi. Debatable. Olive Branch has more people, but Oxford is probably more recognizable, as home to Ole Miss. 34,-83: Gainesville, USA for Toccoa, Georgia. 34,-80: Monroe, USA for Lancaster, South Carolina. 34,-78: Hope Mills, USA for Elizabethtown, North Carolina. 34,-6: Rabat, Morocco for Rabat North, Morocco. 34,-1: Oujda, Morocco for Tlemcen, Algeria. 34,3: Messaad, Algeria for Djelfa, Algeria. 34,5: Tolga, Algeria for Biskra, Algeria. 34,25: Arvi, Greece for Kato Vigles, Greece. 34,32: Paphos, CY for Akrotiri, Cyprus. 34,33: Limassol, CY for Larnaca, Cyprus. 34,34: Ayia Napa, CY for Agia Napa, Cyprus. 34,45: Sarpol-e Z̄ahāb, Iran for Sarpol-e Zahāb, Iran. 34,126: Mokp'o, KR for Mokpo, South Korea. 34,127: Yŏsu, KR for Yeosu, South Korea. 34,128: Sinhyŏn, KR for Tongyeong, South Korea. 34,134: Himeji, JP for Takamatsu, Japan. 34,136: Yokkaichi, JP for Tsu, Japan. 33,-116: Hemet, USA for Borrego Springs, California. Yes, Hemet may be larger in population but I happen to know for a fact that no one there geohashes or even owns a computer. Actually Palm Springs could make an argument for this Graticule as well, you may have heard of it, the Rat Pack used to hang out there. But, this Graticule is dominated by California's largest State Park, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, an immense wilderness that will only not try to kill you for two weeks in the spring when the flowers are blooming. Therefore I suggest it be left as-is. --Scerruti :What, not "Hellhole Palms"? ;-) -- Jevanyn 33,-115: Calipatria, USA for Joshua Tree, California. Yeah, right. Not even going to research this one. I mean would you rather have a graticule named for a U2 album or something that sounds like a disease? --Scerruti :Or Salton See, so it can be named after an ecological disaster.... -- Jevanyn 33,-112: Phoenix, USA for Phoenix (West Valley), Arizona. 33,-111: Mesa, USA for Phoenix (East Valley), Arizona. 33,-100: Spur, USA for Aspermont, Texas. 33,-99: Haskell, USA for Throckmorton, Texas. 33,-96: Plano, USA for McKinney, Texas. Debatable. Plano is significantly larger and more recognizable, but is also on the edge of the grat. 33,-92: El Dorado, USA for Camden, Arkansas. Probably to be moved. El Dorado has more residents and is probably more well-known. 33,-91: Greenville, USA for Monticello, Arkansas. Debatable. While Greenville is significantly larger than Monticello, Greenville is in Mississippi while most of the grat's area is in Arkansas. 33,-89: Grenada, USA for Winona, Mississippi. 33,-85: La Grange, USA for Anniston, Alabama. 33,-82: Martinez, USA for Evans, Georgia. 33,-80: Summerville, USA for Orangeburg, South Carolina. 33,-79: Conway, USA for Georgetown, South Carolina. 33,-77: Kure Beach, USA for Fort Fisher, North Carolina. 33,-7: Casablanca, Morocco for Ad-Dār al-Bayḍā (Casablanca), Morocco. 33,-6: Khemisset, Morocco for Rabat South, Morocco. 33,6: Reguiba, Algeria for Touggourt, Algeria. 33,7: Nefta, Tunisia for El Oued, Algeria. 33,10: Midoun, Tunisia for Gabès, Tunisia. 33,36: Damascus, Syria for Dimashq, Syria. 33,126: Cheju, KR for Jeju, South Korea. 33,132: Uwajima, JP for Matsuyama, Japan. 32,-116: El Cajon, USA for Tecate, Mexico. Tecate is not a good name for this graticule, at least until geohashing catches on in Mexico. However El Cajon is not much better. I would suggest Alpine, CA as the replacement name, but I would like to hear opinions. --Scerruti ::I'd suggest keeping Tecate. There is a town on either side of the border with that name, and it's smack in the center. Short of making Tijuana a split city (and pissing off everyone in San Diego), I'd leave it as is. And there have been geohashes in Mexico (I think relet did one?) -- Jevanyn :::relet's map shows successful hashes around Mexico City. There is only one apparent cross border (from: US to Mexico) attempt shown and I believe that was a typo and did not actually happen in Mexico. I am frankly shocked I didn't realize that this graticule needs to be left as-is because there is a beer named after it. -- Scerruti 32,-114: San Luis Río Colorado, Mexico for Yuma, Arizona. 32,-113: Tacna, USA for Dateland, Arizona. 32,-112: Ajo, USA for Gila Bend, Arizona. 32,-111: Drexel Heights, USA for Casa Grande, Arizona. 32,-102: Andrews, USA for Midland, Texas. 32,-98: Mineral Wells, USA for Stephenville, Texas. 32,-97: Fort Worth, USA for Ft.

Irbid is still much larger than Haifa East, however. 32,128: Fukue, JP for Gotō, Japan. 32,132: Nakamura, JP for Shimanto, Japan. 31,-112: Sonoyta, Mexico for San Carlos, Mexico. 31,-111: Sells, USA for Sasabe, Arizona. 31,-110: Heroica Nogales, Mexico for Nogales, Arizona. 31,-109: Agua Prieta, Mexico for Douglas, Arizona. 31,-107: Ascensión, Mexico for Columbus, New Mexico. 31,-106: Ciudad Juárez, Mexico for El Paso, Texas. 31,-102: Midland, USA for Odessa, Texas. 31,-98: Brownwood, USA for Goldthwaite, Texas. 31,-96: Mexia, USA for Fairfield, Texas. 31,-94: Lufkin, USA for Nacogdoches, Texas. 31,-88: Waynesboro, USA for Citronelle, Alabama. 31,-87: Atmore, USA for Monroeville, Alabama. 31,-83: Tifton, USA for Moultrie, Georgia. 31,-81: Hinesville, USA for Brunswick, Georgia. 31,5: Rouissat, Algeria for Ouargla, Algeria. 31,27: Marsá Maţrūḩ, Egypt for Mersa Matruh, Egypt. 31,30: Kafr ad Dawwār, Egypt for Damanhur, Egypt. 31,31: Al Manşūrah, Egypt for El Mansoura, Egypt. 31,32: Būr Sa`īd, Egypt for Bur Sa'id, Egypt. 31,34: Gaza, PS for Beersheba, Israel. 31,35: Amman, Jordan for Jerusalem, Israel. 30,-116: Colonia Vicente Guerrero, Mexico for Camalú, Mexico. 30,-115: San Quintín, Mexico for Lázaro Cárdenas, Mexico. 30,-112: Heroica Caborca, Mexico for Caborca, Mexico. 30,-109: Nacozari Viejo, Mexico for Nacozari de Garcia, Mexico. 30,-95: The Woodlands, USA for Conroe, Texas. 30,-89: West Gulfport, USA for New Orleans, Louisiana. 30,-86: Wright, USA for Crestview, Florida. 30,19: Al Burayqah, Libya for Marsá al Burayqah, Libya. 30,32: Ismailia, Egypt for Al Isma'iliyah, Egypt. 30,34: Yeroẖam, Israel for Mitzpe Ramon, Israel. 30,48: Ābādān, Iran for Khorramshahr, Iran.
