GSAK is an application designed to provide complex databases containing Geocaching information stored in GPX and LOG file format. Geocaching is an outdoor activity practiced worldwide, which consists of hiding and seeking containers (geocaches or caches) and which can be found with the help of GPS devices or other navigational techniques.
The purpose of this activity is to find the cache. Once they are found, the geocachers can write the date when they found it, as well as their code name. Some caches may contain small objects such as toys which geocachers can take provided they replace it with another object.
Therefore, the purpose of this application is to provide information about caches around the world. Users will notice that the main window is divided into two screens. The screen located on the upper part will provide detailed information about specific geocaches, such as its code, the waypoint name, its location, the name of the placer and other information that is provided as a list. The second screen will display the geocache selected from the list, displaying a map where users can see its location. There are several map styles that users can view according to their preferences: street map, satellite imagery, open streetmap tiles etc. On the left part of the second screen, users will be able to read detailed information about the respective geocache and all that it contains: the geographical coordinates, the country, the date when it was placed and the name of the one who placed it, as well as tips on how to get to it.
By the way, comments, impressions and further suggestions of geocachers who have found caches can also be read below the map.
Moreover, users can export data in different file formats, as well as filter their geocache search through different searching criteria. They can even create an account on geocaching.com and get access to new geocache databases or update the existing ones.
To sum it up, GSAK is dedicated to geocachers who are active players in the discovery of geocaches. By using this tool, they get instant access to substantial geocache databases which will guide them through new and exciting adventures.
