Germany Hamburg Graticule.png

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and its inhabitants claim it's the greatest one. It is split between two graticules.


Both graticules cover the independent city Hamburg as well as the "Länder" Schleswig-Holstein, Niedersachsen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

West (latitude 53, longitude 9)[edit]

The graticule is split by the river Elbe. Except by boat or swimming you can only cross it via bridges or tunnels located in Hamburg. In the north is Schleswig-Holstein, south the river is Niedersachsen. In Niedersachsen there is the "Wildpark Lüneburger Heide", a nice national park. You can view the graticule with all Geohashes visited in Google Maps.

According to Land usage, the chance for your hash to fall into one of the following areas is:

74.21%	Fields
6.58%	Roads
5.95%	Forests
4.51%	Natural reserves
3.42%	Settlements
3.38%	Water
1.95%	Highways

East (latitude 53, longitude 10)[edit]

This graticule contains the eastern half of Hamburg, as well as the city "Lübeck", parts of Schleswig-Holstein and Niedersachsen and a small corner of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

According to Land usage, the chance for your hash to fall into one of the following areas is:

53.00%	Fields
16.95%	Natural reserves
15.04%	Forests
5.90%	Roads
3.95%	Settlements
3.63%	Highways
1.52%	Water
