+Team_Tramper Posted May 21, 2006 Share Posted May 21, 2006 I'm looking for volunteers to fill in a form for me for a period of thirty days. At the end of this time I'll collaborate all the data and make it available to anyone who wants it. The purpose of the experiment follows on a visit that myself and cache fan did to Faerie Glen Nature Reserve today. We both had the same GPS (Garmin Vista) and both got similar readings, yet my original data, taken on a different day and time were different to todays readings. Whilst our GPS readings differed slightly they were not drastically different which leads me to believe that the time of day and day of week may affect the readings, which in turn may affect our geocaching. If you're interested in participating in this little experiment, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org All you need to do is take a GPS reading at the same place and time (home??) twice a day for thirty days and note which satellite numbers are used by the GPS to fix your location. You may take as many readings as you like. I have compiled a form ready to be filled in, all you have to do is print it. You can either email the stats at the end or fax them to me with your GPS details. (make and model) Hopefully, I'll have a very full inbox in the days to come. I'll nag QFC and see if he will post the data on his site Quote Link to comment
