This user earned the Subdivision geohash achievement
by reaching hash points in all {{{subdivisions}}} of {{{region}}}.

Awarded to anyone who visits a Geohash in all possible subdivisions that contain land that are part of a particular region.

For example, someone who visits a Geohash in each of the 5 boroughs of New York City would be eligible for the Subdivision Geohash achievement for New York City on borough level.

This achievement is not awarded in the following special cases:

Difficulty

The easier it is to get to the subdivision, the longer the time that it will take for a geohash to land there.

The Subdivision Geohash is not easy to achieve no matter which size the region is.

  • All boroughs in a town: The boroughs are likely to be easily reachable by bicycle, but it is probably going to take forever until the algorithm places a Geohash in each borough, since they are small subdivisions.
  • All counties in a state: You probably have to use a train or a car to get to the other side of the state, and even then, there is no guarantee that there will be a Geohash in each county every day.
  • All states in a country: Depending on how large your country is, you may need to book a plane to get to the other side of the country. On the other hand, once you are there, many states are larger than graticules, so it is likely that there is a Geohash in the state every day.

This is not to say that all Subdivision Geohashes are equally difficult. Generally speaking, the more subdivisions a region has, the more difficult it is to complete a Subdivision Geohash for this region.

You can find templates for some common regions with their common subdivisions HERE, already laborously typed by somebody else. No need to do the work twice.


Proof

Regular proof of reaching a geohash, with one for each possible subdivision for a day where a geohash fell within the applicable boundary.
