Lost The Web Site


Followers 3

Recommended Posts

I'm struggling to find a web site I found a few days ago. It's about caching, it asked me to choose my geocaching name from a drop-down list and then gave me a UK map with little dots showing the caches I had found. They were colour-coded so I could tell the regulars from the multis

 

Unfortunately I closed my browser before bookmarking the site and now can't find it again. I know it's probably not the best description of the site, but if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be most grateful!

team tisri, perhaps you still have it your history?

 

If using internet explorer, click the history icon in the toolbar (a clock with a downleft arrow?), you might have to scroll though a load of sites but you might be able to spot it?

 

or in Firefox, goto Go menu and choose history at the bottom.

 

(other browsers would be similar)

Looks like it was the GCUK page after all, many thanks to those that suggested it. The map I described can be seen here:

 

http://stats.geocacheuk.com/cachers/view_c...ap.php?c=166436

 

and shows a little dot for all the caches we've found. Somehow it looks a lot less impressive than the counties map with all the counties coloured in.

How about this one then... Counties you've cached in are coloured black to yellow, based on cache count.

here's the link...

Or here's the same map, but coloured according to the average score you awarded to caches in that county (ie you found lots of duff caches in Hampshire, but a few great ones in Derbyshire :P:huh: )

 

It's a bit of a work in progress, that I never really progressed! Other maps available are:

Average score by county

Cache count by county

Cache density by county land area

Cache density by county population

Very nice looking maps teasel! Me being a thicket though, I can't work out whee to start from to get it customised for me... The link above gives, I think, counties you (?) have cached in...

 

not well explained, but hopedfully you get my drift! :huh:

You need to find your cacher id. This is the number that GC.com knows you by, and is present in pocket queries and some URLs. Perhaps the easiest way to find it is to log on to G:UK and visit http://stats.geocacheuk.com/cachers/view_cacherstats.php. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find our your id. Yours is 392408, team tisri's is 166436.

 

Once you know that, you can substitute it into the above links eg:

http://stats.guk2.com/pics/make_countymap....=count&c=392408

http://stats.guk2.com/pics/make_countymap....=score&c=392408

http://stats.geocacheuk.com/cachers/view_c...ap.php?c=392408

http://stats.geocacheuk.com/caches/flash_map.php?c=392408

http://stats.geocacheuk.com/caches/gis_map.php?c=392408

 

Hope that helps!

Many thanks. Funnily enough, after posting my last mesage and browsing the site, I came across that number and tried the same - worked a treat! B)

 

If allowed, (and I can work out how - shouldn't be too difficult) :P I'm going to use a link to these maps on my GC.com profile, rather than having to manually update the counties map when it changes. Is there anywhere with an explanation of the colour codes as well, so I can add that. All due credit and appropriate links will, of course, be included!

Yes, of course. Credit for the original idea is really due to Moote. I just "embraced and extended", as our friends in Richmond would say :huh:

 

If you want a flat colour, you can put eg &flat=ff33cc in the url (replace ff33cc with the hex code for the colour you want).

 

Eg http://stats.guk2.com/pics/make_countymap....831&flat=ffff00 would give you something like Moote's original marnanel map...

moote_flat.png

 

The colours on the standard map are currently obtained by sorting the counties in order, then allocating a colour from black to yellow based on position in the list. Unfortunately there's a bug in the program, so that if two or more counties have the same count, they don't actually get the same colour as each other (I need to use their rank eg "equal second", not just their ordering eg "third in the list"). I'll correct this if and when I get a chance.

No problem with the 'bug'... its only minor, and I doubt anyone will notice! Many thanks for the hard work, and thanks also to moote, I didn't know he was the 'marnanel man'!

 

Aren't cachers nice! :P

Nice work Teasel!

 

Looking at my map:

 

http://stats.guk2.com/pics/make_countymap....531&flat=ffff00

 

counties.png

 

Something is wrong :ph34r: I've gone no caches in Gwynedd, which is coloured but I have done one in Humberside, but that's grey :$

 

Edit: none found in wiltshire either, which is also coloured.

 

Edit2: Further investigation reveals a red dot in the middle of anglesey on the static map, where I've not cached. This does not appear on the flash or gis maps. Furthermore, the only cache I've found in Humberside is now archived and appears on the static map as a find, but not on the dynamic ones.

If you have logged notes, will attends or DNFs, these all show as found. In the case of Anglesey, you'll find it's Dave's camping do. Plus you will get whatever county YOSM is in at the moment.

 

I noticed some of these irregularities with ours, which is why I went back to the marnanel map.

Is there any way notes and DNF could not be counted as finds on the map.

 

That would make this map very cool.

 

See ya...Gary

'Wandering' caches, such as Ye Olde Survey Monuments or puzzle caches a LONG way from their given co-ords can also make it look like you've caches in an area you've never actually visited. It's all good though. I'm off to add some code to my gc.com profile page - thanks for all the cool map info stuff! :lol:

just add &found=1 to the end of the image url. eg

http://stats.guk2.com/pics/make_countymap....f00&found=1

 

that way only the found logs will be counted. (should work whatever style of map you choose)

 

- as for what counties are included - not included etc, I not going to go there.... <_< (ie could go on for ever)

 

Hi Barry,

 

There appears to be an issue where the map misses out some counties for example:-

 

I have found the cache "GCTJMF" in Gloucestershire, but this county isn't coloured in. But if I do a list of the the counties I have cached in Gloucestershire shows up?

 

Is this a bug that can be fixed?

 

Thanks

What list of counties are you looking at, this one doesnt list Glos as having any caches logged by you?

 

Ahhh! I think it might be that GCTJMF is currently listed as 'Temporally Unavailable' which are not plotted on maps, listed etc... Including archived/unavailable on the map shows Glos.

I see so if a cache is archived or disabled its not on the map.

 

What about this one, still active "GCTD0F" in Greater Manchester. But Greater Manchester isn't yellow on the map.

Greater Manchester does show if you include unavailable caches, like the link in my prev post (&unavail=Y)

 

As for GCTD0F well that falls foul of the vaguallties of the county detection on G:UK, as it's detected as Cheshire.

 

The county listing on G:UK currently did include archived (but not temp unavailable) ... that's now cleared up. (but have the option to include temp unavail/achived like the highscoring page.
