  1. I have been meaning on taking a trip up, but it won't be for a few weeks, but I will stop in and uplift the Bunnyperson - will move it down to Chch, and hopefully someone here will be able to move him further on his trip. Nick.

  3. Wouldn't it be great for MinuteWar if you could input Lat/Long! Nick.

  5. Oh, you can buy the colour orthos, only $3200 for a 260 sheet's worth! So that would make all of NZ $950,400.... anyone want to chip in Nick.

  7. Have you seen Emap. It would be great to be able to punch in lat/long for use in geocaching/minutewars - or get the images (cheaply) for use in your own mapping/GIS program. Nick. Shortcut to viewer

I agree with you tgsnoopy, and I am sure that if geocaching.com was ever made pay-for-play that we have enough tech savy players in NZ to setup geocaching.co.nz (Gavin/Rediguana has already registered the domain) for just us NZ players. (But domain registrations and bandwidth do cost money, so someone will have to shell out...) Nick.

  13. quote:Originally posted by tgsnoopy: Interesting to note that there are a few relatively new caches around here that haven't been pounced on yet. Previously I would rush off to get them first if I could, but http://www.minutewar.org/ has curtailed a lot of my Geocaching time. I must admit that MinuteWar has been eating alot of my time (go team W!) but I did take a couple of days off over easter and baged 10 caches down south (cheers Donovan and Gavin) - made a change to go somewhere and find a physical something, rather than virtual something The loss of daylight savings has prevented finding and placing caches after work, so that may account for some of the drop off... Cheers Nick.

  15. quote:Regarding the replacement bulbs... I've heard some stuff about that, but the difference is that an LED does not use a reflector, that's why LED lights are not adjustable. So unless someone comes up with something pretty amazing, LED lights probably won't work in a standard flashlight. Here is someone selling LED bulbs http://www.theledlight.com/ledbulbs.html (I came across this while looking for something else) Nick.

  18. Jeremy, what's the chance of being able to add a feature to search the cache pages like we can search the forum's? I was just wondering today how many people have used Ammo Can's to hide caches in New Zealand, but you can't do a search on the contents of cache pages, only the Cache Name. (Although I guess it would increase the load on the server, so I can understand it not being implemented) SELECT CacheName FROM Caches WHERE CacheDescription LIKE "%Ammo%" AND CacheCountry = "New Zealand" Cheers Nick.

  20. Thought everyone might be interested: I have just been in contact with Dave Balm from LINZ about the NZTopo-online project, and here is his reply: quote:Hi Nick,We are well advanced with the NZTopo-online project which will allow the NZTopo database (used to produce our 1:50k topo maps) to be displayed on and downloaded free from our website. Unfortunately fell into the clutches of the legal eagles and will not now be available until June. The database is unprojectioned and almost scaleless. It will be able to be displayed on the NZGD2000 datum in a wide range of scales. Sorry for the delay but it will be worth waiting for.

Sweet, now when I am feeling particularly lazy, I can plan a route to avoid climbing too many hills (I know I can do that with a topo, but just not as interactivity)... of course now planning a trip will take as long as the trip itself, just checking all the different approaches to a cache site Nick.
