FromGeohash

Summary

Converts a geohash string to an Extent object in WGS 1984 coordinates that represents the corresponding bounding box in the geohash grid.

Syntax

FromGeohash (geohash_string)
ParameterExplanationData Type
geohash_string

The geohash string used to obtain the extent in WGS 1984 coordinates.

String
Return Value
Data TypeExplanation
Extent

FromGeohash returns an Extent object in WGS 1984 coordinates of the geohash string.

Code sample

Return an Extent object from a geohash string.

import arcpy
extent = arcpy.FromGeohash('dp1k05k8')

Get point geometry at the center of the Extent object converted from the geohash string.

import arcpy

# Spatial reference set to GCS_WGS_1984
spatial_reference = arcpy.SpatialReference(4326)

extent = arcpy.FromGeohash('dp1k05k8')
extent_x = (extent.XMax + extent.XMin) / 2
extent_y = (extent.YMax + extent.YMin) / 2

pnt = arcpy.Point(extent_x, extent_y)
pnt_geom = arcpy.PointGeometry(pnt, spatial_reference)
