As soon as there were geocaches there were people hunting for them. Soon after that these early geocachers kept their
own statistics regarding the geocaches they found. From there and over time statistics have been kept by individuals on
anything and everything imaginable.
Web sites, and applications were developed around geocaching statistics. These tools provided geocachers with a wide
variety of statistics ranging from state, country and world rankings to terrain and difficulty matrix. You can see which cache
hider you most frequently find caches placed by as well as which geocachers are most frequent finders on your cache
The most recent advancement in geocaching statistics was born from geocaching.com opening up the API interface. With
this change you can now see country and state rankings for things like; hider with the most favorite points, geocaches with
the most favorite points as a percentage of total finds, geocachers state and country rankings and much much more.
Cacher Rankings: The web site cacherstats.com was created by the Grand High Pobah. On this web site you'll find
cacher rankings for the world, many countries, each province in Canada and each state in the United States. Check out
our Cacher Rankings page for more information including links and helpful tips for using the Cacher Stats site.
Cache Stat Bars: Cacher Stat Bars are customizable
blocks which show your geocaching statistics at a high
level. Some Cacher Stat Bars can be added to any
HTML page you choose, others are only for Forums
where BBCode is supported.
