Bienvenidos a la Wiki de la Comunidad de Geohashing en español. Esta wiki es ofrecida por el webcomic xkcd.

¿Qué es esto?

El algoritmo tal y como figura en el comic #426 de xkcd, publicado el 21 de Mayo de 2008.

El <<Geohashing>> es un método para encontrar un lugar aleatorio cercano y visitarlo: Un generador de aventuras espontáneas. Cada día, el algoritmo genera coordenadas para cada cuadrado de tamaño 1 grado x 1 grado que hay en el mundo. Las coordenadas pueden apuntar a cualquier lugar: En el bosque, en la ciudad, en la montaña o incluso al medio de un lago. En una misma región del mundo, todos obtendrán siempre las mismas coordenadas.

Por ello, estas coordenadas pueden ser usadas como destinos de aventura, al estilo del <<Geocaching>>, o para encuentros locales. Después de la diversión, ¿Por qué no documentar tu expedición?. El resto de nosotros disfrutaríamos enormemente leyendo sobre tu historia, viendo tus fotos y celebrando tu éxito (o ayudándote a sobrellevar tu error). Puedes usar esta misma wiki para aportar las coordenadas diarias que has intentado o vas a intentar.

Descargo de responsabilidad: Cuando cualquier conjunto de coordenadas generadas por el algoritmo de <<Geohashing>> entre en un área peligrosa, sea inaccesible, o fuera necesario un acceso o allanamiento ilegal, NO intente acceder a ellos. Por favor, investigue cada posible ubicación antes de intentar acceder a ella. Se espera que usted utilice un juicio apropiado en todos los casos, y usted será el único responsable de sus actos. Lea las directrices.

Encuentros oficiales

Rhonda, Robyn and Wade at the 25 April 2009 coordinates for Vancouver, BC, Canada

Official xkcd meetups happen every Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.(*) at that day’s normal geohash coordinates. It is considered a Saturday meetup if you are there at 4:00 p.m. or if you meet people, but you are most likely to encounter other readers of xkcd if you go at the designated time. Bring games!

You're encouraged to geohash on any day of the week that the coordinates are accessible to you, but if you attempt one meetup all week, make a little extra effort to have it be on Saturday. All meetups start at 4:00 p.m. or as designated on the graticule page.

There's even an achievement for making it to 100 Saturday meetups.

*In some areas, 4:00pm is too close to sunset during the winter, so earlier meetups are often more appropriate. See individual graticule pages for local conventions.

Coordenadas Recientes y Próximas

The coordinates for the next Saturday meetups, scheduled for 10 August 2019, will be based on the Dow’s opening price published at 09:30 EDT (13:30 UTC) on Friday 9 August. See timeanddate.com to convert this time to your local time zone.

Galería de Expediciones Recientes

La galería para cada día se añade a esta página automáticamente, pero nosotros seleccionamos las fotos para la galería. Los buscadores pueden añadir fotos para cada día. Solamente añada el nombre de la foto en la lista con el link <<add yours>>. Si la galería no está ya iniciada, copie el formato de ayer o cualquier día anterior, o lea las instrucciones.

  • Both the KCKD iPhone app and the Garafa iPhone app seem to no longer work (at least not with iOS 11). I believe there are now no iPhone geohashing apps that work with iOS 11 or later ... but I'll be very happy if anyone can prove me wrong. :-) BrendanTWhite 21:18, 4 April 2018 (ACST)
  • The link on the iphone app page [1] labelled Geohash support is broken
  • Jim removed an apparently invalid expedition and photo from 2009-01-10 Someone should see if the real 2009-01-10 29 -95 is hiding someplace that isn't obvious.
  • Expedition Archive pages (like [2]) show same coordinates for every day (looks like an error)
    Started a discussion here: User_talk:Tjtrumpet2323#usage_of_var:latdate_on_Template:Coordinates.2FRegular.2FlatOnly.3F - a correct use of vardefine:* might fix this if it's not going to break anything else.
  • Does anyone have access to LocalSettings.php to set $wgUseTeX = true; so that formulas can be used? Or is there some other way to enable them that I'm not seeing? Thanks! -ralph
  • Kids' Geohash? If they have a GPS enabled phone they can take part but the grid is too big so divide it into 32, 64 or even 128 (~850m x ~700m) for younger kids. Parental supervision recommended!
  • anything in Category:Needs attention might also be considered a kind of TO DO, especially Award template needed and Ribbon image needed
  • 2011-06-26_49_8 has category Category:Meetup in 49 8 on it, but doesn't appear on that category page. Is something wrong with the graticule Template? (We had a problem with spaces between the colon and the category name at one time.) Jiml 10:22, 27 June 2011 (EDT)
Not sure what you mean, 2011-06-26 49 8 is on the category page and that's the equivalent name with spaces (they are interchangable), am I missing something? - Mampfred 16:48, 27 June 2011 (EDT)
It seems to be showing up on the category page now. Not sure why the problem disappeared. Jiml 22:04, 6 July 2011 (EDT)
  • I need a GEOHASH ALARM. An email to be sent to me every time the selected point is close enough to me (like less than 5 miles, for example).
Your wish is my command. Register an email address at http://xkcd.nathanwoodruff.com/Notify.aspx It will send you an email with a password. Log in and enter a Graticle Latitude and a graticule Longitude in the Grat Lat and Grat Lon boxes 33 -84 for Atlanta Georgia. If you want to enter the Global Hash, check the Global box, Then enter a Location Latitude and Longitude in the Location Lat and Location Lon. 33.75 -84.39 for the dead center of Atlanta Georgia. You will need to enter a maximum distance. If you enter 5 miles it will send an email if the days coordinates for the chosen graticule is less than 5 miles away. Click on the "Add" button. It will send you an email from now on every day after the Dow open is released. --NWoodruff (talk) 18:25, 13 November 2014 (EST)
There is now help instructions for the Notify program available here help text
  • Switch the maps on the wiki to OpenStreetMap (perhaps through OpenLayers)? The Google Maps v1 API has sunsetted and now all maps show an ugly warning that make them basically unusable. One could update to v2, but with the same effort why not support such a quality community project (besides doing the [[OpenStreetMap achievement of course :)?
