VGPS map of just puzzle solution coordinates

+1 vote
Is there an easy way in VGPS to create a map using only corrected co-ordinates from a whole series of puzzle solutions in the same area? We want to map a series of about 50 puzzle solution positions. We see that we can put 'corrected' lat and long coordinates in a VPGS list in the columns provided, but can we then map just these rather than the original coordinates which already appear in the same list? We have looked in questions but can't find a specific answer.

If you put the solved coordinates in the "Personal Cache Note" field of the cache page, Project-GC will read them from there and after that display the cache on the corrected coordinates instead of the posted coordinates (unless you specify otherwise). You can then show only caches with corrected coordinates with the Solved Mysteries page, but they will also appear on the correct places on Map Compare, for instance (together with any other caches that happen to be in the same area).

Many thanks! Will try that out.
