Geocache!

Consulting the GPS to get our current coordinates

Students in the Fall Geographic Information Science (GIS) class gave geocaching a try on a cold day in November. Like a high-tech treasure hunt, the goal is to use GPS and clues to navigate to a “cache” created by someone else. The cache contains a log of other geocachers who discovered it and maybe a trinket left as a prize. Want to play along too? Grab your GPS and check out http://www.geocaching.com/.

Steep slopes and brambles are no match for these GIS students
