It's taken from the listed co-ords, so if it's a multi it's taken from the first WP.

That seems odd to me, surely it should be taken from the location of the cache, not the posted coords for the puzzle or a multi?
How would the site know the final coordinates to be able to calculate the elevation? I found 3 today (all around 200m ASL) but gave me 300-400, 500-600 and 600-700m elevation scavenges.

Where the Geochecker is enabled, the system could use the final coordinates perhaps?

Not sure if it is an issue on my trophy page or just that I am assuming incorrectly...

The Abecedarian trophy requires us to find a dZ valid caches starting with every letter of the alphabet. Am I correct? Does this NOT include Geocacher geocaches?

Thanks in advance.

Geocacher Geocaches are not dragonZOne geocache types.

Thanks. That answers that. No issue here. Just my misunderstanding. :)

When I do a query on dZ caches that I have found since my dZ start date I get 471 but the statistics on https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/statis ... iwr/finds/ show 472.

The difference seems to be that the statistics are counting Geocacher and History cache finds in the total but they do not have dZ points attached to them so I thought they were not dZ caches.

Can you advise if they should be counted or not?

Total Finds (dragonZone)553 (0.38 per day or 2.63 per week)
Total Unique Caches Found (dragonZone) 482

Filtering this list I get 482 unique caches.
There are no Geocacher or History caches is that list.
https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/Chwili ... ypointsdz/

I'd suggest you run a match against that list and whatever else you are filtering against and identify which cache it is. Without looking too far, you may be excluding a cache you own that you have found.

Just been checking out the new dZ Area Challenge Maps, which are great! Thanks to all involved in getting them up. In the course of my tinkering, I've found that GA10010 lists as being in Litchfield zone on its cache page, but isn't appearing in the list on Caches in Litchfield page. Noticed this because it is my only Litchfield find and the new map shows me without a find in that zone.

Cheers

Just found a related but not identical issue with GA1940. It shows as being in Grant zone on both cache page and Caches in Grant page, but for some reason my dZ Area Challenge map hasn't picked up the find.

Hi Old Saint

They can be found in your 'Graphs' tab then drop down to dragonZone Area Chellenge and select the State/Territory you are interested in.

Cheers
