[edit] About

The Helgoland graticule is at latitude 54, longitude 7. With the only landmasses being two islands totaling about 4.2 km², the odds of a hash being in the sea are overwhelming. The graticule's area is distributed as follows:

99.98%	Water
 0.02%  Land

Statistically, a geohash in this graticule falls on land rougly once in 14 years, meaning one land geohash from the inception of the game through 2020.
