Post Map cache ID codes ZTB
Hi all. Brand new to this.
On the geocache map around my vicinity they have different Letters in the teardrop pointer..Z, T, B.
What do these mean?
Is there a list of these codes on the forum?

They refer to the cache type but they're not very intuitive.


B Movable
C Cache In Trash Out
D Beacon
E Event
H Burke and Wills
I WhereIGo
L Locationless
M Multi
N Night Cache
O Other
P Podcache
R Eathcache
T Traditional
U Unknown or Mystery Cache
V Virtual
W Webcam
X Letterbox
Y Mega Event
Z TrigPoint

I want to have special icons for the cache types but no-one will design them, so we do with strange letters :-)

Thanks CaW.

Yeah, not "intuitive".

Now I just need to find out when I would use these:


H Burke and Wills? (only "Dig Tree" comes to mind. Do I bury the cache?)
L Locationless? (no idea)
N Night Cache (good to go to at night e.g. top of a hill to see the stars?)
R Earthcache? (some environment thing?)
T Traditional? (Indigenous?)
V Virtual (mmm...just an app...not a "real" cache)

BTW I love the concept of CITO (although on another site I read it as CIRO.."Rubbish".

Burke and Wills you can't create. They are special once-off caches.
Check the wiki for the locationless, night and earth caches.
A traditional cache is one at the posted co-ordinates.
A virtual cache is one where for reasons of security, environmental concerns, law, etc, a physical container is not permitted.
Please have a look at the wiki it contains a lot of information that will answer these and more questions.

Heres the list of cache types on the wiki:
http://wiki.geocaching.com.au/wiki/Cache_type

I've added the map codes to that page.

That does look good! - Just filling in the blanks and letting you know that CITOs are a marker with a "C".

Years ago I did suggest the things labelled "Icons" be used as the "Map markers". No one liked that idea then and I'm guessing they still don't...

I picked the term because it made sense to me - no complaints so far. :)
