Coordinate to Geohash

Go to Product

Converts the given coordinates to a Geohash.

A geohash is a single string of letters and digits of an arbitrary length – the longer, the more precise. A geohash guarantees, that two hashes with a shared prefix are close together (however the reverse is not guaranteed). This still makes geohashes useful e.g. for indexation, etc.

A hash can be shortened at the end, which means losing precision. For the precision depending on the number of characters, see here:

Hash length Error
1 ± 2,500 km
2 ± 630 km
3 ± 78 km
4 ± 20 km
5 ± 2.4 km
6 ± 610 m
7 ± 76 m
8 ± 19 m

Example: For a coordinate of 42.605, -5.603, the geohash of length 5 is ezs42.

Hash length
Length of the generated hash in characters.
Output column name (*)
The name of the appended output column with the Geo Coordinate.

Input Ports

Table with a geohash string column to parse.

Output Ports
