Overview

Some general geocaching statistics per country.

Be careful when intepreting the data, there are many reasons why a trend could look negative. For example a lot of geocachers doesn't log their finds for several weeks, then add the fact that our data updates are delayed. The weather can also cause differences over the years. Fewer geocaches hidden could in many areas be to the fact that the area actually is more or less full already.

The below data is calculated once per week.
