There is a reachable Globalhash today (2012-02-03) but you'd need a boat. Sourcerer 10:56, 3 February 2012 (EST)

I'm not sure where those coordinates come from, but today's UK (ie 30W) decimals are 0.61303061, 0.33535875, are they not? That would give a globalhash at N 20°20.731 W 59°16.251, which is nowhere near the UK, boat or no. -- — Benjw  {talk} 12:02, 3 February 2012 (EST)
I'm afraid it is the DrWilco site misleading another person.... Jiml 12:24, 3 February 2012 (EST)


[edit] RE: This map...

Hashed graticules are green -- dark if they are currently active, light if they are not. Yellow graticules are flagged as active but have not yet had a successful expedition.

I've just manually updated the status of every graticule, but it's far from ideal: it often gets hopelessly outdated; for an island nation like Britain, it is difficult to visualise what is sea and what is land. There are a few virgin graticules still up in mainland Scotland, but determining at a glance exactly where they are is highly counterintuitive.

By contrast, I've been using http://relet.net/geco/stats.html - auto-updates, has a full geographical map underneath, goes into more detail about each graticule's activity. Can we embed it somehow to replace this table and enhance the 'Map' section? --SpiritofMaurice (talk) 08:37, 7 October 2013 (EDT)
