GeoArt Ideas Needed

Recommended Posts

Ever heard of GeoArt? If you haven't, it is basically just geocaches that are arranged so that they form shapes or symbols when they are viewed from the Geocaching.com geocache map. So, do you have any good ideas for a GeoArt project? Please post your ideas and suggestions below. Feel free to post here as many times as you want to. Your ideas are greatly appreciated.

 

This is an example of GeoArt:

Yeah, it's ? caches placed every 528 feet that form shapes or symbols when they are viewed from the Geocaching.com geocache map. :laughing:

Just another name for power trails. Can you tell I'm not a fan? :D

Not all of them, apparently.

I still can't get that link to work.

One of two power trails/geoart close me is ? caches placed every 528 feet along a highway and form a pig on the map. The other is 141 ? caches of different D/T ratings, multi's and a Wherigo, and some placed in historic locations that form a house/Inn on the map. It's called a geotour. I would never just go out and log a power trail and call it geoart to have the icons on a map at random places.

I do think it interesting to find traditionals placed that form geoart, but that would be difficult here in the mountains. :)

 

Edit to add: Got the link to work, that is pretty darn cool. I would attempt those caches.

In lake lure NC, someone made a giant smiley face over the lake, that made me chuckle. Maybe go for something more creative though, what about something that combines with the landscape to form a picture?

I think it would be cool to create geoart that used puzzles, where the image changed once the puzzles were solved and the icons were displayed at the solved locations instead of the posted locations.

GeoArt is only limited by your imagination and you dedication to firstly putting it out and then maintaining it. I currently have a 140 cache GeoArt Series in Canberra Australia. In total it took almost 80 hours to hike over 100kms and place all the caches over 10 days plus another 20 hours to type up all the cache descriptions. With GeoArt start small and see how that goes before moving onto something bigger.

I would like to know how to see the geoarts from the web page or on iPhone application? Is there a way to do so? Tx

You just need to search for one of the caches on any geoart... all the others will show on the map, both on the homepage and app.

I currently have the largest Geoart in Canberra, ACT, Australia. Its 180 caches in Size. Its called the UFO Series. Its Small when you compare it to some of the USA Geoart's. It took me 64 hours of hiking to put out and I walked 120kms from the first to the last cache.

Geoart:

If you like to learn from the mistakes of others, here is an impressive example how not to do:

https://coord.info/GC38NJ7

There was much work, but a big problem: There was no permissiom from the landowner, forest rangers or the urban administration.

The result: Much trouble, and the Geoart don't exist for ever...

But that was not the only effect. After that, the urban administration prohibited all new Geocaches in that area up to now. Years after that Geoart, there is a Cache density there, like in North Korea. But that wasn't the end of the story and the mistakes. The urban administration noticed, that geocaches means much tourists. So they take much money and hide "professional" geocaches without including the geocaching community. The result: https://coord.info/GC5KJWZ

Zero foundlogs later: Boycott from the Geocacher and Archiv. The urban administration costs that experiment 10600€ taxpayers money...

Greetings Johannis10

PS: Hope you find a better way ...:)

Thanks, now I see them. There's an alien face, a star and UFO. Are the caches on the left a rocket? That would have taken a lot of work.
