Geocaching is an outdoor activity, it is the changing technology of the treasure hunt. You practice in part on the web and partly outdoors.
Geocaching is a cultural outdoor activity with several million users around the world. It’s about finding out spots of historical and artistic interest using the geographical coordinates on your GPS.
How does it work?
Geocaching is the evolution of treasure hunting. It’s very simple! Geocachers are divided into hiders and seekers. The hiders hide the cache in near spots of interest, acquiring the geographic coordinates using a GPS. These coordinates, along with a description of the place, can be found on the official website www.geocaching.com.
The seekers, in turn, will use the GPS coordinates to find the cache knowing the exact spot. To take part in the hunt and become a geocacher you must register on the official website www.geocaching.com where the global database of caches can be found. Registration is free. You must also be in possession of a normal GPS system or a smartphone.
Currently in the world there are 10 million users, 3 million caches, of which 20,000 are hidden in Italy.
