The following definition is from David Spencer's Education Paragon Glossary.
Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS (Global Positioning System) technology and then share the geocache's existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS unit can then try to locate the geocache. Geocaching was the first activity to combine Global Positioning System technology and the Internet for real-world treasure hunting.

In order to post a new cache and submit it for review you must indicate that you have read the guidelines as required.
