Seriously, no more hashes visited since August, after such a promising start phase? Is the Munich graticule dead? *poke* ;) --Dawidi 14:33, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Dude, no way! We do have jobs and stuff, but there's just no way of letting the graticule die!-- 23:08, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


New Year's Resolution for the München Graticule: More Geohashing!

Seriously, there have been many extremely nice spots in this graticule during the last couple of weeks, and neither rain nor work should stop me from visiting similarly nice spots in the future as much as they have in the last months. How 'bout everyone else? --Zb 18:37, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Quick Links to Map[edit]

Dawidi, seems like you've removed the QuickLinks. What was the problem with them? I found them to be very helpful. --Zb 15:11, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes, they're helpful (at least somewhat; i've never actually used them), but they induce a delay of several seconds before the page loads. I had added them to all "my" graticules but now I'm removing them again because the delay is annoying. Since this is basically "your" graticule, feel free to put the template back in if you want. --dawidi 15:53, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for answering. Maybe I've never noticed the delay in loading since my connection goes through an old 486 that I've configured as a proxy, so my internet is somewhat fast but far from superfast. I'll leave it like you set it up as I understand the reason very well and don't really pwn the graticule... Need to log more successes to actually feel like I own it ;-) Groet, --Zb 16:04, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Now that I've played with it, I see what you've experienced -- there is a noticeable delay even through my ancient proxy. I've set up a separate page that won't delay the loading process of the original page and still allows access to the QuickLinks through a bookmark to München, Germany/Quicklinks for those who still want to use them. --Zb 16:19, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I've taken the liberty to embed München, Germany into München, Germany/Quicklinks, just in case you were wondering what I just did. Koepfel talk 16:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I think your trick of embedding the page is flippin' awesome. The still-learning wiki programmer that I am, this impresses me a lot! Thanks! --Zb 16:48, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


Hello, I'm going to be in this graticle for a four days in München, 2010-09-17 through 2010-09-20. I'll be able to check this site from the hotel wifi, and I'll be looking up points each day, but my ability to plan travel to the point may be limited. I'd really like it if anyone is considering an expedition during this time to think about possibly including me if convenient. Thanks, Splitdipless 12:31, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, finding some coordinates together would be great. I usually check at night and if something looks like I might go (and I have the time), I'll let you know. I usually check places in Augsburg (47 11) or München (48 11) cause both are along my commute. Yay E of 30W rule! --Zb 20:20, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Sehr gut! Thanks Zb. Splitdipless 19:23, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Guess I might have to chicken out. When I first answered your note on this page, I hadn't known yet I was going to 49 10 this weekend, with quite some non-geohashing stuff going on. Partly, we can also blame the algorithm (or the DJIA, which feels better), because I do have some time on Sunday, but all the coords 48/49 - 10/11 in the neighboring grats would involve lengthy drives for me, with biking being my preferred method of reaching stuff. However, I still haven't completely stopped thinking about 48 10 on 2010-09-19 (Sun) and 48 11 on 2010-09-20 (Mon). The latter is in a beautiful part of the München graticule that I've already been to quite often (e.g. 2010-03-09 48 11) and it can be reached by foot from the S-Bahn station in Vierkirchen. But I really can't promise anything... --Zb 07:38, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
Its ok Zb. I've got enough tourist stuff to keep me busy anyways.Splitdipless 06:51, 19 September 2010 (UTC)


I feel like it's time to do some re-organizing on the page. Some of the expedition reports should maybe be archived and I also think that an "active geohashers in this graticule" list would be nice. What does 48, 11 think? --The T-Man 08:09, 9 February 2011 (EST)

Sounds good to me! Archives might work with a url like http://wiki.xkcd.com/geohashing/M%C3%BCnchen,_Germany/year, but there may be better ways that I am not aware of. Please feel free to go ahead and try whatever seems practical for you. --Zb 14:33, 9 February 2011 (EST)


Over one year after my first announcement, I have now collected the 2008 expeditions at München/2008. Please feel free to add or modify stuff as desired. Maybe we could also add some sort of table with a quick overview of expeditions, seperated in successful, unsuccessful, etc. I'm not quite sure on where that should go, however, on the München page or on the München/year page. I have great hopes for this graticule and year, hopefully, we'll have some activity in this beautiful area! -The T-Man 09:41, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

Oh, and yes, I am aware that München,_Germany/2008 might have made more sense than München/2008, which I copied from the Berlin page. If anyone would like to change this, please do so. -The T-Man 09:43, 18 March 2012 (EDT)
I moved the pages. I also added a link to the archived years directly under the headline. Dunno if you like it. If not remove it ;) -DerFlob 11:46, 18 March 2012 (EDT)
Nah, sure, looks perfectly reasonable to me. I'd also aim to set up a list of this graticule's geohashers (even Innsbruck's got one!) and maybe create some sort of table-view statistics for München so that there are a bit more informations to gather from the site, and in a comfortable and structured way. Once the list of past expeditions has gotten a bit shorter, we could also maybe reactivate the table of content :) -The T-Man 11:54, 18 March 2012 (EDT)
