My geohash locations

I'm Anthony. I live in Alameda, California, which is near San Francisco, California.

I will only intermittently make attempts to reach geohash points.

I think that the one-degree-square boxen should be called "quadrangles", like the USGS has been calling them forever.

  • 2008-06-30 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - this is not the nearest it's ever been to my house, but it's the nearest that's been on dry land. And on a sidewalk by a shopping center - super-convenient. See my flickr photos. KMZ file available here.
  • 2008-12-29 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - In a shopping mall in Marin County on a short workday.
  • 2009-01-09 37 -121 (San José Quadrangle) - In the middle of a rural street just north of Livermore, about 5 miles from my work, on a workday.
  • 2009-11-25 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - in a turnout on Golf Links Road in the Oakland Hills, reached on a workday night.
  • 2009-11-28 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - in the Bay Bridge toll plaza on a saturday when I was already planning to cross the bridge.
  • 2009-12-21 37 -121 (San José Quadrangle) - in an intersection of major streets in Livermore.
  • 2010-04-07 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - On arterial street in San Leandro. Drove through hash point twice.
  • 2010-11-03 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - On arterial street in San Leandro. Drove through hash point at speed.
  • 2010-11-10 37 -121 (San José Quadrangle) - on the side of a street behind a shopping center in San Ramon.
  • 2012-12-26 37 -122 (San Francisco Quadrangle) - On residential street in San Francisco. Drove through hash point slowly.

[edit] Unsuccessful

  • I made my first attempt at a geohash on 2008-06-20, but was unable to reach the site, due to lack of trail and unwillingness to attempt cross-country through the poison oak. A Google Earth kmz file of my attempt is available here.
  • I drove past the San José location for 2008-06-25 on my way home, but didn't have time to find a good place to park along Stanley Boulevard, or a good way to take pictures of the site and my GPS while whizzing by at 50+ mph.
