Thanks for the idea burchil, here's the breakdown by rural municipality. Interesting to note that (92/130) 71% of RM's have had a cache placed in them.

Okay this was requested by a few people and probably will be quite helpful for cache hiders around Winnipeg. It's a high res map showing where all the active and archived caches in the Winnipeg area are in relation to city greenspaces (provided by burchil - thanks). One limitation to consider is that only the first stage of multis and pseudo point of puzzles are indicated. That being said it is probably a very handy guide to where there are green spaces devoid of caches (all those yellow coloured parks).



This is a low res overview, the high res can be found here.



Oh, I see I forgot to add a scale bar and lat/long graticule to the map. I anyone really want those on there let me know.

New toy!!

I saw a program called GeoQO mentioned in the Groundspeak forums, with a brief description of it's features. It's a waypoint management program with some manipulation and analysis features. *Very* new, though, and while it does work well, it's currently command-line only, and sparsely documented. It took me the best part of a day to get it set up and running. But (to me) was worth it. Not sure I'll continue to use it, but it was fun to play with.

Anyway, the feature that caught my eye was that it could export *.kml files that would create a density map in Google Earth. I'm impressed.

Do you see that dark blue area near city center in grnbrg density map?  My house is at the top spike of the blue patch.  Now you know why it's been so hard to get my 5km radius!

Awesome job on the stats, Dragonfreys. Very interesting. The next question: Is how often can/will you uptade these stats? Is most of the legwork done and it's just a question of updating once in a while or will it require inputing all the data all over again every time you want to update? It would be cool to see the progression over time from now on. Perhaps set a goal for Manitoba, let's say to reach 2000 caches by December 07. The stats could be used kinda like those big thermometers used for fundraising. Just an idea.



You think you have it difficult Dani, try living right in the middle of the blue spot. It makes for less driving around though...

Here a good example of a stats page. This is taken from the geocaching-quebec page.

I was thinking I would update them when we get to 2000 active caches. It would be good to automate the process but it is a bit too specialized at this point to set up. It will be interesting to compare the second 1000 caches with the first.

Thanks to Peter for the dates to pocket query out the current active caches and a big thanks to TurdleEggs for the query of archived caches. Here are the latest stats now that we have cleared 2000 active caches and are nearly at 3000 placed caches.

Thanks for the stats. I was looking over the park density and noticed some changes since last time. Assiniboine Park and Forest have declined, while Harbourview, Crescent Drive, Kings and Maple Grove have increased. I'm not sure thats correct though as Assiniboine Park at least as more caches in it than ever afaik.

Hmm, the park layer I have for Winnipeg doesn't have names. If anyone has a GIS layer of Winnipeg parks with the names I can spatially join the caches to the parks and break out the stats by year placed compared to archived. Similar to parks at the provincial level.
