Is there a way (in python or postgis) to create polygon geometries from geohashes?

It is my understanding that geohashes are created from point data (lat, lon). Would it be logical to create a polygon that represented the area of all points that "collapsed" to a given geohash? If so, what is the best way to do this?

  • Yes, of course a geohash maps to an area. What have you tried? – Vince Nov 8 '17 at 1:18
  • Like postgis.net/docs/ST_GeomFromGeoHash.html for example. – John Powell Nov 8 '17 at 8:39

  • I'm not sure I understand the link between extensiveness of research effort and on-topic-ness... – dbaston Nov 8 '17 at 17:49
