Project GC
« on: November 30, 2012, 13:17:58 »
Today I came across this website: http://project-gc.com

The more I looked at it, the more I was impressed. It does a lot of handy tricks and produces very interesting statistics, links and maps. It is also very user-friendly. Much of the information could perhaps be produced in GSAK, but that is a lot of extra work, especially if you're not a GSAK master already. The ranks it shows for users and caches is also very interesting.

Downsides:
- It can get stuck sometimes on extreme searches, like mapping all the geocaches in Ontario at once.
- Since it is trying to model the entire world, all the numbers seem to be a week or two out of date.

Both of the above will likely be mostly resolved in time. Still, this may be the best geocaching website I've seen since Geocaching.com.

A good example of the fun stats you can run:

http://project-gc.com/CacheStats/toplogscaches/?profile_name=&country=Canada&region=Ontario&fromyyyy=&frommm=&fromdd=&toyyyy=&tomm=&todd=&submit=Filter&submitbutton=Filter

Ottawa is by far the most active geocaching area in Ontario (by number of logs on caches within boundary). It's listed as #2 only because of cache listings outside a defined urban boundary.

I'll check this out when I get home! Nothing seems to work when I access the site from my workplace. I blame my IT security policies...

Data sure confirms how rich Ottawa is with caches.
