    These, of course, are only in AR. What can I say, someone else can look at the other states. I'm an Arkie and I think Arkie.

    Anyway, doesn't mean anything. Numbers just interest me.

    Great statistics! I also find these types of things interesting.

    I don't think there is anything too out of the ordinary here. It looks like Arkansas has a good mix of caches.

    entirely too much free time on your hands

    I figured that SMARTBUTT. Did you do a query for them and use GSAK or what?

    I did a loc of point for each page, there were 47 pages. Then I opened each page in excel and joined the data into one spreadsheet. I then had to gather the data for log date, found date, type, size and status. I then loaded it into arcview and did a conversion into the correct projection. Now I have a very accurate map of each point which I can lay over an infrered photo and know exactly where the cache is (trust me that is very detailed photo). You can see cars, people, trees and other details that you really didn't know you could see. Arcview ran a script and told me exactly which county each cache is in, so now I can give a very accurate number of caches per county without having to manually count and keeping all information up todate is extremely easy, except last found. Last found is hard because you have to go to each cache and update it or do a new loc and start all over again. No thank you for that. If a new cache is added you just do a new loc only on the new ones and append it to the data. It's really cool.

    Why not use GSAK for all of the sorting?
