Experiments with in-memory spatial radius queries in Python


Efficient geo-spatial radius queries on a given dataset are a problem that we’re very regularly facing. Usually we handle the problem by spinning up a PostgreSQL database and installing PostGis with all its nice and efficient spatial indexing capabilities.

Geohash is a geocoding system invented by Gustavo Niemeyer and placed into the public domain. It is a hierarchical spatial data structure which subdivides space into buckets of grid shape, which is one of the many applications of what is known as a Z-order curve, and generally space-filling curves.
