Before everybody goes and tries to tell me how to do it on my own, let me spare you some time. I am not a premium member. I do not have pocket queries and I cannot filter by type.

I was wondering if somebody could create a google map of all the earthcaches in Wisconsin and send me the link so that I can import it into my maps. As of today, there are 179 earthcaches in the state. I've only got a handful and would like to get a few more. Thanks in advance.

Emailing the PQ would be against GC's terms of use. I'm not saying it can't be done, but lets not advertise it on the WGA forums. Thanks.

I'm not really interested in the Pocket Query itself, just a final output map generated from the data. I don't even need cache names or designations. All I'm looking for is pins on a map. I can do it myself, it's just going to take forever and a day to do it Sad

I have all of the listings for them, just no way to plot the data without manually entering all of the information. I went to earthcache.org and did a search my state. Voila! Similar to a PQ I assume, just not the same format (MS Excel.)

No harm done. There was no need to change your post, but I'm glad you understand.

Back on topic... I don't have a Google Maps API key, so I can't post a map somewhere. Does it have to be Google Maps or just a picture of the map like The Balks posted?

It would be nice if it were an interactive map. That way I could zoom in, pan around, that sort of stuff.

I just finished entering all the coords onto my spreadsheet. I'm going to start plotting them. I may not need assistance after all. That's what I get for trying to skip out of figuring out how to do something myself Smile But hey, if anybody does come up with something in the next day or two, I would still be interested (as I will probably still be working on my version!)
