I need all coordinates of geocache in the Maltese island

+1 vote

I've come asking for help as I have decided to do a thesis on geocaching, specifically where people on my island like to geocache as for environmental research.

I was hoping to ask that you can send me all known coordinates of the geocaches found in Malta (island) as I have attempted this since October and still not able to get the appropriate data even when looking at the map directly. I ask as Im attempting to put it on GIS format to be more accurate in my research.

There are currently 321 geocaches on Malta, 8 being events.  Do you know how to use GSAK?  You can run a pocket query for those caches and upload the file to GSAK.

You can use the Map Compare tool to get a list of all caches in a country or region. In your case, this link will give you a list of all the caches. Click on the "Ionizer12" tab to see the caches you've found.

Thx but one more question is it possible to make a GIS out of this
Well, I think that depends on the tool you want to use to make a GIS. If it can read gpx-files, then you can import the gpx-files from here and use it.
I don't know, how to make a GIS or what tools to use for it.

Why you not make a "Pocket-Querie" with the basic functions?
So you have all geocaches in one file for your GPS

A pocket query or adding the caches to the ProjectGC virtual GPS exporting both will give you the data in a GPX format. This can be parsed to import the data into a GIS. As others have said there are only 321 data points to deal with so its hardly going to be awkward.
