The Hides tab is a tab in the Profile Stats that tracks statistics about the users hidden geocaches and the logs received on them. It consists of twelve modules.
- 1 Cumulative finds of my caches + Caching karma
- 2 Owned caches statistics
- 3 Logs received
- 4 Finders by country
- 5 Top finders of my caches
- 6 Placed by type + Placed by size
- 7 Placed by difficulty rating + Placed by terrain rating
- 8 Placed caches difficulty / terrain chart
- 9 Placed caches by hidden date
- 10 Placed caches by found date
- 11 Placed caches found by month + Placed caches found by weekday
- 12 Hidden attributes
Cumulative finds of my caches + Caching karma
These two modules are both graphs. The first shows the cumulative number of times the user's caches have been found, both in each year (the dashed lines and the left axis) and in total (the shaded area and the right axis). The second shows how the user's karma has changed over time.
Owned caches statistics
A number of miscellaneous statistics about the user's owned caches, which are mostly self-explanatory.
This module has a list of all the user's hides, with each having the hidden date, last found date, number of finds, days per find, number of favourite points, GC-code, type and cache name listed with it. Archived caches have a strikethrough on their name.
At the top is a header, with the number of geocachers that have found the user's caches, number of logs received and number of total geocaches.
Finders by country
This is a top list of what country most of the finders of the users caches come from. Generally the country where the user owns most caches will be number one on this list. The list shows the countries name and flags, how many found it logs have been posted from people that seem to be living in that country and the percentage of the total logs on the users caches. The top list shows the top 20 countries and under the list there is information about how many nationalities that did not make the top list. Sometimes there are founds from 'unknown nationalities', this is due to Project-GC calculating the nationality based on the users geocaching activity since this information is not available from Geocaching.com.
Top finders of my caches
This is a top list of the accounts that have found the most of a users caches. The list shows the name of the finder, the amount of caches they have found and the percentage of the total caches owned by the user. The top list shows the top 20 finders and under it there is a box that shows the next 20 finders and how many caches they have found.
Placed by type + Placed by size
These two modules show the amount and percentage of each cache type and each cache size of a users hidden caches. These modules can be switched between tables and pie charts by clicking the symbol after the name of the module.
Placed by difficulty rating + Placed by terrain rating
These two modules show the amount and percentage of the difficulty ratings and terrain ratings of the users hidden caches. These modules can be switched between tables and pie charts by clicking the symbol after the name of the module.
Placed caches difficulty / terrain chart
This module shows the D/T Chart (often called 'Fizzy Grid') for a users hidden caches. Under the chart is information about how many different D/T-combinations the user have hidden and how many of those where rated with a difficulty or terrain of 3 or greater.
Placed caches by found date
This module is a calendar (also called 366 grid), this calendar shows at what date the caches hidden by the user have been logged as found.
Placed caches found by month + Placed caches found by weekday
This module contains two bar charts. The first is the dates the user's hides were found sorted by month, the second by day of the week. The maximum value for each is shown darker. The weekday chart additionally states the number of weekday and weekend finds.
This is a chart of all the available attributes at Geocaching.com. The ones that the user have added to their caches are shown in saturated colors and the ones they have not used are in grayscale. Under each attribute there is a number that shows how many of the users hidden caches that have the attribute. Hovering over a attribute give you a tooltip that shows the name of the attribute. There is also information about how many of the attributes the user have hidden and the percentage of the total number of available attributes that makes.
