Title: Geoart
Post by: Griff Grof on November 11, 2013, 07:21:53 pm
Have any of you heard of this?

It's where on a map a series of caches forms a picture/image. Here's an example:

I think it's amazing how this is achieved - it's probably easy to do with puzzles/Multi's (once you work out all the coordinates to list them as, which would actually be a headache) but even more so with traditionals.

Have any of you seen any geoart loops here in the UK? I haven't, and I reckon that's because of footpaths and private land, something which other countries (such as the US) don't have with more vast open areas.

There was this set of rings for the Olympics down at Weymouth but was been archived at the end of September:

Interesting, tricky finding room in this overcrowded little island we live on unless you went North or West?  I see the Olympics smileys are in the sea...

I'm going to Cornwall in a weeks time but Lands End area, a bit far from these but looks interesting and one way to get your Puzzle cache finds total up  ;D

Indeed...

A bit of GSAK & Excel trickery and I have them all solved and back in GSAK with corrected co-ords.

Wow, that's impressive!

Someone said it was the largest puzzle cache series in the world  :o

Yrs Griff apparently so, but it does only have one puzzle to solve as they are all the same.
