Pure Ruby Geohash
This is a pure Ruby implementation of the Geohash encoding.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ `gem install ibotta_geohash`
Encode a latitude and longitude into a geohash
GeoHash.encode(47.6062095, -122.3320708, 6) # => "c23nb62w20st"
Decode a geohash into a bounding box
GeoHash.decode("c23nb6") # => [[47.603759765625, -122.332763671875], [47.6092529296875, -122.32177734375]]
Calculate ajacent hashes
GeoHash.neighbors("xn774c") # => ["xn774f", "xn7754", "xn7751", "xn7750", "xn774b", "xn7748", "xn7749", "xn774d"]
Calculate hashes covering a radius
GeoHash.areas_by_radius(45.37, -121.7, 50_000) # => ["c216nekg2", "c216nekg8", "c216nekg9", "c216nekg3", "c216nekg1", "c216nekg0", "c216nekep", "c216neker", "c216nekex"]
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
- This pure ruby implementation is not fast.
- There are micro-optimizations, but a native C gem will be faster
- David Troy's geohash gem does not compile under Ruby 2
- Currently working on using C code from the Redis project
- Possible to convert to using integer math instead (like C)
- Ordering and structure of return types is not ideal
