+pinkunicorn Posted May 31, 2016 Share Posted May 31, 2016 The short answer is that if the map data says that the cache is in one state and the cache page says the cache is in another state, then the checker will rely on what the map data says. The position that is used is the posted coordinates; they are the only thing that the checker system has access to. The only problem I see with this is that the only readily accessible bit of info users have access to is the State field in the listing. They could run calculations on the GPS coordinates and come up with a physical location based on their border data, but there's no guarantee that will match PGC's. The only universal bit of data everyone can rely on equally for the same results (even if the location isn't actually correct) is the listing's State/Province field. You're saying PGC doesn't have access to that field? That seems odd. No, I'm saying that we don't use that field if we have access to better information (i.e. map information for that country).
