Woohoo! Graphs for everyone.

1st time around, it will give you general graphs for cachers, finders, hiders and state. If you want to squiz at a particular cacher then enter their name and hit the go button. See whether it's close :D

There's some strange things in the logs. Looks like the old log import wiz has made a few booboos with some logs. I have a find on a webcam but the log type is a space. Hmmm. So when I include a space as a find I get an additional space log (which is actually a DNF) on another cache. But the log has space not D.

Still, close enough for now.

looking at the nice graphs Seems everyone gets out and about in winter to find caches :lol: when I showed my wife she said I wonder why? I thought that it might be cooler so long walks won't be as tiring or as hard work any other thoughts? just out of curiosity. Although january was a close second on the monthly graph (school Holidays?at a guess)

Don't have cache type in the extracts yet, but let me look into how to make a pie chart. Shouldn't be too hard.

It's interesting to see that more caches are found in winter in australia than any other season. I would have expected winter to have the lowest amount of finds!!!
<P>I guess that there are less muggles around in winter though</P>

Command and thou shall be obeyed (but not necessarily every time).
When you get to the cacher page (by putting in your caching name) there's a new graph at the bottom as you requested.
Not sure on the colors. I'm color challenged :D

One more graph: Finds by Terrain / Difficulty.
This should show you just exactly how lazy you are :D
Mine's pretty pathetic :oops:

Well, c@w if you're taking requests...
<br><br>
How about a graph of active cachers by month. It would be nice to know how many teams are enjoying our game and how this number has grown over the last couple of years! I was mucking around with the stats data this afternoon trying to sort this out but you obviously have this data totally under control :D.<br><br> My thoughts, a count of the unique cacher names with at least one find in a given month. I was dropping off locationless as these skew the local numbers (and as you know I only feel happy when I find plastic :lol: ). I think there's almost 1000 cachers active in Australia at the moment! Graphs for Aus and each state would be nice :) <br> <br>

BTW, I like the pie but not "Traditional" colour, olive??

pie chart looks great - thanks CAW

<P> :idea: one suggestion - can you sort the data in descending order prior to plotting the chart? this would order the pie slices and presumably the legend

<P>no sooner do I see another great piece of work and reply to the forum, on the refresh CAW has added another plot of terrain/difficulty. is there no end to your creative genius :?: :!:

<P>BTW - my terrain/difficulty plot is also pretty pathetic - at least now I can see what to aim for :wink:

:shock: Cool stuff.

Looks like we in Vic are the cache finding mad state :)

:idea: What about a difficulty & terrain highest finders & placers for each rating on the main page.

Eg person with the most level 1 caches
person with the most level 2 caches etc etc
