What are the geocaching codes?

Recommended Posts

I am working on a new puzzle geocache, and I am after the code identifiers that geocaching uses. These can be used to construct a URL directly to a particular item (eg by using https://coord.info/xxxxxxx). Another clue is that these are the codes that tracking IDs may not start with (you will never see a tracking id that starts with GC)


For example:

GC - GeoCache - a geocache description

GL - Geocache log - an individual geocache log

TB - Travel Bug - a trackable's description 

TL - Trackable Log - an individual log of a trackable retrieve, visit, etc.

PR - Profile - a player profile (mine is PR5DMHT)

BM - BookMark - an individual list

GT - GeoTour


There are also common travelbug tracking codes, such as OC - Oak Coins - I do not need these.


Are there any others? Do drafts have one?
