While I appreciate the diamond badge for the Low Altitude Cacher I do not really feel like I earned it. I have found the cache GC397JN, whose published coordinates are in Lake Wairarapa, a lake that is 2.5m deep, and less than 10m above sea level. And yet the cache is flagged at 944m below sea level.

I think there has been an earlier Q querying this, but those caches were out at sea and we did not realise how much error there was.

There is something wrong with the altitude data somewhere!

Funny how my thread attracted so many downvotes (I upvoted this thread) lol!
