Missing elevation
March 28, 2018 04:14PM
I've noticed a cache (GC1DHNV) for which the checker system isn't returning any elevation data. It was published back in December 2017 so I'm not sure why it wouldn't have any value?

Is this the correct gccode because it is a traditional Cache

Yeh it's one of someone's find which the checker was failing in because it didn't include any elevation data unlike the rest of the cache results.

A quite late reply, is this still an issue or was it solved? I checked the database and it's at 21 meters.

Theoretically a geocache can disappear from Project-GC's database for various reasons. For example it disappears from, or their API just gives an invalid response that it doesn't exist (it happens). In those cases the geocache will be added again, and will get an elevation of NULL. But that should be corrected within minutes, normally.

Couple of weeks ago I fixed my script to skip caches without elevation data because one cache did not have it and the script crashed with user who has found that cache. In that case the problem was existing probably some days.
