Geocaching software for Linux




Digital GPS-aided treasure hunts, or geocaching, is becoming more popular. We investigate the choice of geocaching software available for Linux.

Geocaching is often referred to as the paper chase of the digital age. In May 2000, Dave Ulmer published the first geocache on the sci.geo.satellite‚Äźnav mailing list.
In his posting he describes a fairly simple idea: geocachers would download the coordinates for a location off the Internet and then use a GPS device to locate the place. Once there, they would look for a hidden container with a logbook and possibly other goodies.
