Dragging this thread out of the dust bin.
I found a better way to create the cache density heat map. Easier and looks better. It's still not useful for anything other than something pretty to look at.

Ooh, pretty lights! Wink

May not really be useful but I do like stats. These is definitely a more fun way to look at this information than bar graphs. Not surprising at all that the biggest area of caches are in the high population areas.

Kind of looks like the weather radar when "spotty showers" pop up.

On the main map, I can see the glowing spots around us that represent all the caches in Roche-A-Cri SP and in Buckhorn SP. And on the "blue question mark" map, I can see our little contribution to the puzzle fun in Sandland... Twisted Evil And zuma's challenge caches along the bike trail SW of Eau claire really show up on the puzzle map.

Thanks for the fun, TBC.

Not surprised to see the Appleton area have the most blue question marks,
