Points Of Light: The Evolution Of Geocaching

It starts as a single spark, a solitary beacon in the darkness, and evolves into a light-show of New Zealand’s geocaching history – well, till 2009 anyway.

But no matter how many times It’s Not About The Numbers watches this historic clip, it never loses its magic. That’s all thanks to French player GarenKreiz – that’s his GC.com avatar, right – who created the python script language which portrays the placement of each new hide as a dot of light.  

Luckily for many of our European readers, similar newer animations of their nations’ own geo-progressions exist on YouTube. Enjoy!

    why be happy with old 2009 versions for Au/NZ?

    Select NZ and wait for it to download.

    Enjoy!

    The pinacle of my life, my creation / adaptation got a mention notaboutthenumbers 🙂 It was not too hard to adapt, just needed Zero Gravatis’s help to get a list of all the caches in New Zealand (including the archived ones at the time).

    As CraigRat says, they have more up to date versions so go watch them.
