Geohash Notification Service


I've started a project to scratch yet another itch of mine, it's a geohash notification service.

For the unacquainted, this is how geohashing works:

How my service works is very simple:

  1. Visit:
  2. Enter your email
  3. Select your location on the map
  4. Enter the radius

Then if a geohash falls within that 'circle' you will receive an email with a picture of where the geohash is for that given day:

Like almost all my other projects, it's open source too!

Happy geohashing!
