The All Around Cacher


pgc-badge.php?icon=TheAllAroundCacher&quality=D&.png Find geocaches in all 360 degrees around your home location. With math we are calculating the angle between your home location and your finds, and round that number down to closest integer. This will create 360 sectors. Your mission is to find a geocache in each and one of these sectors, when you do, you get the Diamond. The plotted coordinates of geocaches is what counts, not the final location when that differs. If a geocache's plotted coordinates are moved after you logged it, your find will move as well.

Loop

pgc-badge.php?icon=TheAllAroundCacher&quality=D&loop=99&.png It's possible to loop this badge by finding mulitple geocaches in every sector. The sector with the least number of finds in it will set the loop number.

Related tools

See 360 from home

An interactive tool that shows what geocaches has been found in the sectors, and which are available in others has been made available at 360 home.

The tool is not in its final version but most of the planned features has already been implemented.

Tools from other providers might not be fully compatible, this is because it's very complex to calculate the the angle between two points on the spherical Earth. There are many different formulas to use, some more exact than others. Also the number of decimals used might be relevant.

History

This Badge was added with the BadgeGen 4.0 release early 2020.
