Geohash encoding and decoding for Elixir.

## Ordering of longitude and latitude

*Every* function in `Geohax` use the `longitude,latitude` ordering; make sure not to invert these!

Both [Redis](https://redis.io/commands/geoadd) and [PostGIS](https://postgis.net/docs/ST_MakePoint.html) use this same ordering, but if you feel strongly about that and would prefer to use `latitude,longitude` instead, you can simply create a new module that does this for you:

```elixir
defmodule MyGeohash do
def decode(geohash) do
{lon, lat} = Geohax.decode(geohash)
{lat, lon}
end

def encode(latitude, longitude, precision \\ 12),
do: Geohax.encode(longitude, latitude, precision)

defdelegate neighbor(geohash, direction), to: Geohax

defdelegate neighbors(geohash), to: Geohax

defdelegate within(min, max, precision \\ 5), to: Geohax
end
```

## Usage

### Encoding and decoding

```elixir
iex> Geohax.encode(-132.83, -38.1033, 6)
"311x1r"
iex> Geohax.decode("311x1r")
{-132.83, -38.1033}
```

Note that the format for coordinates is `{longitude, latitude}`.

### Finding neighbors

```elixir
iex> Geohax.neighbors("311x1r")
%{north: "311x32", south: "311x1q", east: "311x1x", west: "311x1p"}
iex> Geohax.neighbor("311x1r", :north)
"311x32"
```

### Calculating geoashes within an envelope

```elixir
iex> Geohax.within({52.291725, 16.731831}, {52.508736, 17.071703})
["u37ck", "u37cm", "u37cq", "u37cr", "u3k12", "u3k13", "u3k16", "u3k17", "u3k1k", "u37cs", "u37ct", "u37cw", "u37cx", "u3k18", "u3k19", "u3k1d", "u3k1e", "u3k1s", "u37cu", "u37cv", "u37cy", "u37cz", "u3k1b", "u3k1c", "u3k1f", "u3k1g", "u3k1u", "u37fh", "u37fj", "u37fn", "u37fp", "u3k40", "u3k41", "u3k44", "u3k45", "u3k4h", "u37fk", "u37fm", "u37fq", "u37fr", "u3k42", "u3k43", "u3k46", "u3k47", "u3k4k", "u37fs", "u37ft", "u37fw", "u37fx", "u3k48", "u3k49", "u3k4d", "u3k4e", "u3k4s"]
```
