Just a note that in 3.1 there is also an extra function in the antigravity library, called geohash (from http://xkcd.com/426/ ). For the curious: def geohash(latitude, longitude, datedow): '''Compute geohash() using the Munroe algorithm. >>> geohash(37.421542, -122.085589, b'2005-05-26-10458.68') 37.857713 -122.544543 ''' # http://xkcd.com/426/ h = hashlib.md5(datedow).hexdigest() p, q = [('%f' % float.fromhex('0.' + x)) for x in (h[:16], h[16:32])] print('%d%s %d%s' % (latitude, p[1:], longitude, q[1:]))
