GC43F3 Brass Cap Cache Google Map
Updated 2013-06-19 through BCP617 - Johnson Lake
A GPX or LOC file of all the posted Brass Cap coordinates can be downloaded from links on the Master Index page and from the individual pages for each cap.
For those of you using GSAK with older Garmin's you can use the %Hint special tag in the "Waypoint Description Format" field of the "Send Waypoints to GPS" settings (link) to have a short 30 character version of the hint show in the Notes field of the waypoint on your GPSr. If you're looking at the hints in the GPX files (in GSAK right click on any waypoint and select edit) you'll notice that the short hint appears as the first line of the hint. It's a bit of a waste of space but the repetition does serve a purpose.
Are you a GSAK version 7 user? I've been working on a few macros which can help you log, track and organize your cap finds. The Cap 'n Calculate macro will also show the true accuracy of your GPS compared against the coordinates of the caps. If you're interested have a look here.
Mouseover of icons on the map or the list along the right margin will give you the cap number on the map. Clicking on each icon on the map or in the list will bring up a balloon (see example below) with a link to simple page for each cap (created with GSAK).
Detailed topographic mapping (basically scans of the paper maps) are available by selecting "U.S./Can.: MyTopo" from the drop down list in the top right corner of the map. The Canadian topographic mapping works best if you zoom in a bit before switching ().
Double click on the map to zoom in.
The list of brass caps can be collapsed by double-clicking it's top bar or moved around the screen by dragging the top bar.
