How do I set up a team geocache ?

Recommended Posts

Hello World,

 

Since many days, I'm trying to figure out how to set up a geocache website that would force 4 people to be at 4 different locations with each their smartphone and the localisation set on. Once they would be at the same time at these locations, they would get extra instructions (coordinates of the cache, instructions for the next stage, ...)

 

It's not my purpose, but if necessary, the 4 users would first have to register (choose a team name and a pwd), then log in, then go at the same time a the 4 different locations, then they would get the information, ...

 

Is there somebody who could help me on the methodology or even beter that could help me coding this as a webpage ?

 

Thanks in advance

you could ask your Reviewer if this would be possible.

Tx - I will, but I have the impression I'll have to write an appart webpage. Let's see if there are more idea's :-)

Keep in mind GC doesn't like links to external sites/software.

 

BTW, ik dacht dat er al zo'n soort caches bestond maar de naam ontglipt mij. Ik kan wel van avond eens kijken of ik het terugvind (het was op een ander forum).

Mob Cache uses a web site to gather a geo-mob, which is N people (5 in this case) all at the same place. Not quite what you want, but it shows that it can be done if you know how.

I knew this geomob principle. I even took contact with Tim Thomas, the developper of this special feature, but he was to bussy to go further in the development with me. But you're right, it's the basic principle I would want to implement !
