Question about Multicache


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

First of all, thanks for your help.

 

I am thinking on hiding some multicaches and I would like that the geocachers have to measure the altitude in the multicaches coordinates. And then they will check that altitude in a table in order to discover the final coordinates.

 

The question is, can I use the altitude measurement as the data to be collected in a multicache step?

 

Thanks a lot and sorry for my writing.

Yep, the altitude reading might vary within 10 m or even more depending on the terrain so you (your table) should count with it.

 

Check out a cache Exit 104 - you do not have to understand the language but the CO asked cachers to measure the altitude on the cache site (in meters above the sea level) and write it in the log. Read through the logs and you'll see how much it can differ. By the way, I measured 666 m. :rolleyes:

You can help reduce this variance by providing geocachers an object, at the start of the multi-cache, on which to calibrate their altimeters.

 

Keep in mind that not all geocachers will have altimeters available to them, so you'll be limiting the number of people who can find your cache.
