This there some type of Geocaching API that a developer can use to query is profile stats?

There was a time when the answer to all forum questions was 'pocket queries'.

 

That time is now.

yeah, I'm looking for the same thing! Is there an API in the works???

Not if the developers understand the meaning of "prioritization". And I think they do. :D

This would be great - and goes along with the topic I posted yesterday http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...wtopic=199015... I've made a small app for Windows Mobile phone, and will adapt it to SmartPhone if I ever get it working, but for now I don't know how to send login info so all I get back for location is question marks. Everything else I want is there, but you can't do much without location...

 

What I want to do is get info from GC (right now I'm scraping from the web page of the cache) and send to MSN Direct to my car GPS (Nuvi 780). Oh - and I want to be able to do it from my phone when I get the email for a new cache in the area. So, I want to be able to do it only using the waypoint (and login info, of course).

Any form of scraping the website by automated means violates the TOU. You need to seek permission from HQ.

Here's the pertinent section, quoted from the TOU: (I bolded the key wording)

Sounds like it would be easier to use WAP and PQs. The tools are already there.

 

I load caches to my Palm, and both hand held and auto GPSs.

 

Sure, there are limitations and calls for getting past or around those limitations, but the basic mechanisms are there.

Given the above, an API or webservice is a better alternative. What I was looking to do when I said that my program scrapes isn't that it does anything automated. It doesn't go out searching and filling up its own database. It loads the web page for the waypoint that I put into it manually, and grabs the information I want and displays it for me. The next step would be to send it to MSN Direct so my GPSr can get it wirelessly without having to hand enter the coordinates (which I would have to convert otherwise to xx.xxxxx format). The idea doesn't work anyway, because I can't send authentication info, which is needed to get the coordinates - the most important part.

 

It would be great if Groundspeak would give developers an API that we could use to take advantage of the latest in communication advances. I can get movie times, news, weather, and even gas prices displayed on my GPSr but I can't get a GeoCache without hooking it to a wire or entering coordinates manually. Oh, and just so you know, I'm not using the GPS in my phone because the powers that be at Sprint decided that I didn't need to have access to that functionality unless I paid for the service they offer. Yeah, that's nice....

There is a private API and it is available for trusted partners. We have no plans to offer an open public API at this time. It was considered in the past but the current decison is to keep it private.

So I take it that "Trimble", the makers of Geocache Navigator are a trusted parnter? And are probably paying a nice fee to use the API? (since they charge a monthly fee to use their software, which I find insane, you should only have to pay once, and maybe pay for significant upgrades)

 

I'm a software developer, and am currently playing around with writing a GPS application for windows mobile phones in my spare time, and would love to integrate it with the Geocaching database.

Hmmm.... do you realize the server load burden this could cause if the app were deployed to a number of mobile phones? Who would you expect to pay for this burden on the server, database and backbone infrastructure? Or, more accurately, how are you planning to reimburse Groundspeak for the increased infrastructure burden? One illustration for you: at well-known social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Bebo, API application creators/marketers pay a monthly fee for the privilege of the API and the resultant load.

While I am sure that nobody at the frog palace particularly cares what I think :( I would pay double the annual membership without any problem. Those folks are obviously better businessmen than I, they're making money off the game while I am just spending it, but I have thought ever since I joined that free membership should be limited to 90 days and the membership fee should be higher.

 

Further, if the capability is enabled which allows me to cache with my Blackjack II smartphone I would pay for that as an extra service.

 

I, and I dare say 'we' for I am sure many others think like this, want API access enough to pay for it.

 

I don't think cost is the issue.

Soemtimes, you just have to accept 'No' as an answer.

True. I saw Jeremy's answer and have no problem understanding and accepting "no". That does not, however, mean that we can't talk among ourselves about it. :(

Some of these services would cut down on the load thus saving money if other factors weren't at play. What those are I could only speculate.

I agree with you entirely about the palatability of a higher membership fee and also limiting free memberships to 90 days!

Actually, I think you have a good point here, that many members would be willing to pay more for more advanced features, and while it would not interest me personally, I am sure that this idea would have many fans!

and I hoped to get a NET-webservice for programming a tool, to log my own coins, I bring to events :-/

It isn't funny to log coin for coin.

 

I would create a database, to retrieve them with one click... but I'm lucky.. I've got only 12 activated coins at the moment. Other users will have more ;-)

 

3 coins are stolen. So I collected all my coins and will not set them free again. So I wanted to take them (and new ones) to events and log them everytime

Now this may sound like it's a bit out of line, but I have one theory as to why GSP doesn't want a public API.

 

The moment the GC database is accessible via an API, that means that GC.Com would have to accept legitimate competition from other listing services. In no time flat, other folks would snag a copy of the entire listing database and look to find ways of creating their own listing service using the GC database as a base for their listings. By the database being open, they'd have to relinquish some of their "ownership" of the information and allow users to do what they want with it. I think this is what is a concern to them.

 

In giving up that right, it would allow other users to make use of those listings to create other listing services that would be in direct competition with GSP.

 

It appears that specific partner companies are allowed to access the API but I suspect that those partnerships are limited, and that there are specific and somewhat severe conditions as to what they can use the data for.

 

Realistically, I would be extremely surprised to ever see GSP open their API to the general public. I don't agree with it, but I can understand the business logic of not wanting to open up a database that could, in theory anyway, result in the collapse of the company. I don't think that would ever happen, but I can definitely see how some people might view it that way.

 

Just my thoughts...

What if I don't want my cache data available outside of geocaching.com? It's my listing, my cache, my data. If I want it listed on navicache.com or terracaching.com or any other new service that might come along, I'll put it there.

While I can't speak for the thinking of TPTB, but I don't think that would happen with any success.

 

First, a small listing service could that very thing right now through PQs. It would be need to be regional or otherwise small-scale, but doable. It hasn't happened.

 

Second, the backlash from the community would be tremendous. Doing it in a "peaceful" way simply couldn't happen, IMHO.

 

Third, folks aren't going to go to another site for only a few functions when dealing with any one cache. The owner is going to list it here and he's going to deal with seeker here. He's not going to want to hunt down multiple sites do deal folks who log there. There simply isn't going to be enough of a convenience for a parasitic "listing" site to work.

 

Besides, the OP is looking for an API to provide for statistical display. An API could be provided for limited data access without any fear of a mirror site being created.

 

I suspect the reason the API is being pushed way back on the back burners is development priorities. It feels to me that Groundspeak is actually moving away from the core GPS hobby that built the company and constantly looks at all of the latest whiz-bang technology. Partner agreements with companies like Trimble to allow them fairly exclusive direct access to the data is a tremendous leverage in negotiations. I, personally, think opening the very same access to the paying masses would provide better services in the long run, but that's just me. (Case in point, GSAK.)

 

Also, could be they are still looking to blend geocaching into the Waymarking scheme and doesn't want to waste development time on an API that would be obsolete in short order.

I am a NOOB. Been caching for 4 months. Recently upgraded to Pm status because I chose to. If the free membership had an exparation not sure if I would have started in the first place. From a business model perspective, I believe that allowing people to enter and be a part of the community on their terms cultivates more longevity and more players That means more traffic on caches, more variety of new hides which grows the communioty overall.

Would allowing someone to use the API to make a mobile device friendly presentation of the site actually end up being LESS of a burden to the servers? I know if there was a good, easy to use, PDA/Smartphone-friendly version of the site, I'd probably do ALL of my logging from my phone. As it stands right now I have run the full site to upload my field notes, then log the caches. I'm pretty sure that a mobile version would use a lot less bandwidth than the full site is consuming.

I would have to agree. I recently upgraded from a regular phone to a blackberry with unlimited data and a built in GPS. From what I have seen so far I have two options for caching with it. Pay Trimbe's fee or set up some pq's or download from the search results page to get a gpx only the device that I can load in with a cheaper or free app. If there were an api I would only be downloading like 20 or so of the nearest caches in a text based format, no images, no css or javascript files, no scheduling of pq, no email..... you get the point. If they don't want to open up an api I can accept that.

 

But I do think that in all fairness if they are not going to offer other developers a chance, they need to try to keep their partners operating on the same level and not discriminate against users based on which device they own. The iPhone app looks amazing and only a one time fee is even better. I only cache occasionally so paying for a monthly service just doesn't make sense. (Not to mention Trimble doesn't support my Storm yet either) If Groundspeak spent the time to develop the iPhone app, are they working on any other versions?

 

Just my two cents.

Heh, I think you misunderstood. I read that post and wanted to know more about their API. I've been looking for information for developers and potential partners but so far come up short. I don't like sending of email that make me sound uninformed so was hoping to be able to read up before contacting them. The second statement was just to show my opinion about a potential public API. But thanks for taking the time to provide an answer, the gesture is appreciated.

Cheap, how so Jim? I simply was saying that if some rich individual wanted to play - the money they have would be a good tool to allow them to be trusted. The old saying about money talks. If that is cheap then you changed the meaning of cheap.

NO I have not, but I have read his words and seen him use words like "done in spite" (on this forum) in what he did in the beginning, so that has influenced my thinking. I have been saying some strong things about GS on some other threads as of late so perhaps I just shud up about it all eh? But the reality is the reality.

 

I repent, I shall not say another word against the business model of GS till I meet than man myself. If I was not sick from chemo treatment I am in the middle of right now I would not even be on the forums but out in the woods.

 

Jim, thank you. I will be quiet about it I promise, but it so hard because so many threads around here seem to prod one into being negative and critical.

 

Okay?
