How can I create a geocaching game without GPS

Recommended Posts

As part of the 2013 4-H National Youth Science Day Experiment I am interested in knowing if there is a way to create a geocaching game without the use of GPS electronics devices. Other game or experiment ideas include:

 

Geographic positioning

Navigation and location

Observation and data collection

Mapping to find solutions

Geo-caching

Photo interpretation/remote sensing

 

The goal is to get kids comfortable with the idea of geo referencing without the expense of using electronic devices. Your thought son this would be helpful, thanks.

By definition, Geocaching involves the use of a GPSr to at least place the cache.

 

Of course you can create your own private game and call it whatever you want, and play it however you want to play.

You CAN go geocaching without a GPS unit. If you own a map of your area with longitude and latitude on it, and a compass you can use that to find the caches. It's actually a good skill to learn how to use a proper map.
