New Geocaching Website


Hi all,

In the interests of Geocaching and similar games, I have finally released my new website. Having only launched, there are currently no caches on there and so I appeal to all who have created caches to record them on my site.

I hope you'll find the extra features of my site will make it a worthwhile place for your geocaching needs. Some features have not been finished, but the majority has been. I hope to have the main features out of the way by this weekend.

Where is it?

Some of the extra features include:
* personal preferences - like to see coordinates in a particular format? like the date in a certain form? same for time, altitude and distance? Now you can choose each one individually and the site adapts immediately!
* visitor terrain / difficulty - visitors to caches can record their own terrain and difficulty rating in their log.
* automatic notifications - specify ANY number of locations on Earth and have automatic notifications sent to you when a cache is created within a custom defined distance from that location
* automatic notifications - specify ANY number of countries and have notifications sent to you when a cache is created within it.
* automatic notifications - specify ANY number of caches and have notifications sent to you when another cache is created within a custom defined distance from it.
* favourite caches - list your favourite caches and link directly to them from your account screen
* edit your entire account - some sites don't let you edit EVERYTHING about your account online - this one DOES!
* distance calculations - specify ANY number of locations on Earth, and when viewing cache details have the distances to those locations displayed.
* forums - forums are built into the website, and you can create your own forum at any time about ANYTHING
* data is free - want to copy the geocache location details to your own site? Go ahead! I don't own the data and nor will I ever claim to!
* email addresses - Coming soon is the ability to get an email address forwarder set to your account! FREE!
* coordinates - enter coordinates into the website in many different formats! The website will convert them for you!
* altitudes - enter altitudes in what ever unit you prefer, the website will also convert these too!
* email caches - think a friend is interested in a particular cache? Email it to them!
* search - choose from either standard search or advanced search
* export options - coming soon is the ability to export to EasyGPS, PanTerra, and ExpertGPS plus many more programs

So where do you go?
