Random geocaching tidbit for the day: How To Convert Mapping Coordinates



Random geocaching tidbit for the day: How To Convert Mapping Coordinates to GPS Coordinates

There are now many different apps out there that do map conversions. You know the geocaching situations where you have to either put data into your GPSr but the coords are in decimal or vice versa. Mystery and puzzle caches are notorious for conversions. Having an app like GCC (The Geocache Calculator -http://gcc.eisbehr.de/) is great but what happens in those situations when you don't? There are ways my geocaching friends and today's tidbit goes over a multitude of mapping conversions that you can do quickly.

Below is a link to the complete post I did recently on the subject. I find it very useful at times. Especially if I do not have my geocaching applications with me. Be sure to bookmark after you visit.. Enjoy.

Not to toot my own horn, but my geocaching book has instructions for converting coordinates, too. As well as for converting coordinates to distance. (Hint: it varies depending on your longitude, but not your latitude). Thanks for the post.
