Allows custom geohash bucket sizes and finding buckets in vicinity of given location

Project Description

### maptiler ###

Easy interface to created custom sized map tiles for geohashing.

- Plot the result to verify that everything is working correctly
- Get tiles in the vicinity of a given latitude, longitude
- You can use the `tile.hash` property for hashing
- For many applications, it's even better to use `tile.x`, `tile.y` coordinates because you can reconstruct the bounding box from them

Important: What is different than most other map tiling algorithms: The tiles from maptiler have the same size

- You can specify the tile size when creating the instance

import maptiler.maptiler as mt
import maptiler.map_plot as mp

out_path = 'mymap.gitign.html'
search_point = mt.MapPoint(40.7058254, -74.1180859)
search_radius = 500 * 1000
square_size = 500 * 1000

map_tiler = mt.MapTiler(square_size=square_size)
tiles = map_tiler.tiles_for_point(search_point,

# the (x,y) values of the tiles
print [(tile.x, tile.y) for tile in tiles]

# the hash values of the tiles
print [tile.hash for tile in tiles]

map = mp.Map(google_api_key='YOUR_GOOGLE_MAPS_JS_API_KEY_HERE')

for tile in tiles:
rect = mp.MapRect(tile.bounds[0], tile.bounds[2])

map.add_entity(mp.MapCircle(search_point, search_radius))

map.to_file(out_path, focus=search_point, zoom=4)
