5 meter squares, or some level of s2 cell?[edit]

Is the flower planting in a 5 meter by 5 meter square, or is it in some s2 level cell?

This does affect planting around a PoI, I suppose. Do PoI's have a radius of so many S2 cells, or a radius of 40 meters regardless of the s2 cell count (given that there is a variation in size of a cell in different locations)?

I'm not actually sure; I've heard conflicting information from researchers. S2 cells are definitely used somewhere as they're in the game's licenses page, but flower planting cells seem to be aligned to the compass (which S2 cells don't do). I'll have to ask the researchers again. — Soprano(talk) 17:10, November 3, 2022 (EDT)
It turns out that cell boundaries are aligned to the axes of latitude and longitude, and the size of a cell in degrees varies by latitude to keep cells a similar size. The exact details of the system aren't understood but this is generally how it works. — Soprano(talk) 21:32, January 21, 2023 (EST)
