|Benchmarking||This is a collection of utilities I use for benchmark hunting. The introductory PDF file explains how these utilities are used.|
|Finds groups of caches close together. Feed
this utility a .gpx or .loc file and it will find areas with the highest
cache density – the greatest concentration of caches near each other.
Want to know where the most caches in your area are located? This utility will tell you and show you on a geocaching.com map.
|Strips redundant text from caches descriptions & logs that clutter up screens -- useful for paperless caching.|
|GE Coords||Lets you capture coordinates from Google Earth|
|Paste GC Coordinates||Pastes a one-line string of coordinates into GC.com's little boxes.|
|Rainfall||Reports the number of days since the last rain. Avoids slogging through mud. [Only works in some cities]|
|Geocaching Encrypter-Decrypter||Encrypts & Decrypts text using the GC.Com Hint encoder method. Useful for decrypting Hints and adding encrypted notes in Logs now that GC has stopped supporting that feature. Also useful for decrypting hints in a game I've been playing recently called ShutterSpot.|
|Averaging Coordinates||When hiding a new cache I want the coordinates to be as accurate as practical. This utility averages several readings, and displays them visually, so you can see if any seem like outliers and if the average looks like it's near the center of the collection of coordinates.|
