Geocache 2009 Multi Meppel

Geocaching Uit Wikipedia, de vrije encyclopedie. Geocaching is een buitensport en spel, waarbij gebruik wordt gemaakt van een GPS-ontvanger om ergens ter wereld een zogenaamde cache (schat) te vinden. Een cache is in het algemeen een kleine waterdichte doos, voorzien van een logboek en de “schat” (ook wel “goodies”, ruilspulletjes die voor kleine kinderen erg leuk kunnen zijn). Na het verstoppen van de schat maakt de plaatser de locatie bekend aan andere geocachers, meestal via internet. Anderen kunnen bij het vinden van de schat vaak items ruilen en/of toevoegen. In de schat is altijd een logboek aanwezig, waarin de vinder zijn naam achter kan laten. Het is ook de bedoeling dat de vinder op de website van de betreffende schat een bericht achter laat, ook als het niet is gelukt de schat te vinden. GeocacheWanneer men coördinaten uitwisselt, is het belangrijk te weten in welk systeem de GPS werkt. Doorgaans is een GPS ingesteld op WGS84, hetgeen afwijkt van de Nederlandse Bessel-coördinaten of de RD-coördinaten. Om de coördinaten om te rekenen zijn er verschillende omrekenroutines te vinden op internet. De sport Geocaching werd mogelijk door het uitzetten van Selective Availability van het Global Positioning System op 1 mei 2000. De eerste gedocumenteerde cache is geplaatst op 3 mei 2000 door Dave Ulmer. De locatie werd bekendgemaakt in de usenet-nieuwsgroup sci.geo.satellite-nav [1]. Op 6 mei 2000 was de cache tweemaal gevonden. Geocaching groeit over de hele wereld

PART 1 OF 3 FINDING Anti-Micro-Otics Geocache MONUMENT HILL MOSMAN PARK West Australia

PETER BARRETT GEOCACHING GEOCACHE camel’s hump, Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and “treasure,” usually toys or trinkets of little monetary value. Today, well over 350000 geocaches are currently placed in 222 countries around the world, which are registered on various websites devoted to the sport. History Similar to the 150-year-old letterboxing, which uses references to landmarks and clues embedded in stories, geocaching was made possible by the removal of selective availability from GPS on May 1, 2000. The first documented placement of a GPS-located cache took place on May 3, 2000, by Dave Ulmer of Beavercreek, Oregon. The location was posted on the Usenet newsgroup sci.geo.satellite-nav. By May 6, 2000, it had been found twice and logged once (by Mike Teague of Vancouver, Washington). [edit] Origin of the name The activity was originally referred to as GPS stash hunt or gpsstashing. This was changed after a discussion in the gpsstash discussion group at eGroups (now Yahoo!). On May 30, 2000, Matt Stum suggested that “stash” could have negative connotations, and suggested instead “geocaching.”[1] [edit] Geocaches Geocache Loonse en Drunense Duinen in The Netherlands Geocache Loonse en Drunense Duinen
