    Default Global Cache Density

    A link to a Global Cache Density map:

    Boy, the northern European countries are going nuts!

    BTW, is there a program where you can show cache density of caches you haven't found yet? (black or dark where there are no caches left, red/yellow where there are a bunch) This would make a cache trip easy to plan, go where all the unfound ones are. Sometimes it's hard to use the geocaching maps to find local clusters of caches you haven't found yet.

    just get a laptop, put a mapping program on it (like MS Streets and Trips) and export the waypoints using GSAK and baddabing baddaboom... you've got a cachemap... after i did that, i've been able to do like 11 caches in a day! i used to drive in circles and backtrack a lot, but now i can plot my routes and still have time for a nap!

    I know about that, but I'm looking for something that will do a quick representation of a large area so you can pinpoint areas with lots of caches that you haven't done yet (like for me, Nashville TN would glow white hot)
    and BTW, I did 14 today with old-fashioned paper and GPS

    yeah, but did you do any stopping to smell the roses??

    I don't use it cause I am on dial-up but I'm sure that Google Earth using the KML maps is just what you are looking for Andy.
