RE: [gpsstash] entering coordinates/online map


We were using Mapquest for a while, but Mapquest was not a free service so
we replaced it with our current maps. After 40 maps Mapquest charges you a
fee for those services (to be a legal eagle).

I was approached by another map site, but they also had a restrictive
contract, so we use the maps we have now. You can still click on the
Mapquest icon to get to the maps though - I just can't show them on our
site.

potentially silly question(maybe its obvious and i missed the button) :

mapquest generates these maps for geocaching.com

i can't figure out how, if i just got the regular mapquest page, or any
other online map source, to just enter GPS coordinates, liek those below, in
order to generate a map..

anyone have any insight?

im sure im just missing some obvious link.

take care
Andy

Difficulty: 1.5
Terrain: 1

This cache is in a one-gallon metal paint can; it is hidden such that
you won't be able to see it until you are almost on top of it.
Remember, X marks the spot.

The terrain on this is fairly easy; only mild hills and moderate
undergrowth. As usual, if you're bushwhacking for more than the last
couple hundred feet, there's an easier way to get to where you're going.

Note - this will be a nice hike in the spring, espeically if you like
wildflowers.
