How to Run a "My Finds" Query

Postby DudleyGrunt » Thu Jan 09, 2014 9:00 am

How to download a GPX file of all of your OCNA finds.

Option One - Finds Only:
1. Go to your Home page.
2. You will see a line that says, "You have found __ Geocaches. You have participated in __ events."
3. Click on the link [Show All] just below that.
4. Results will display.
5. Click Save Search Results.
6. Enter a name (suggest "My OCNA Finds") in the top field and click Submit. (This way, when you download it, it will be easily identifiable. In the future, you will be able to select it below and overwrite.)
7. You will now be on the Collected Queries page.
8. Locate your newly created Query.
9. In the Downloads column, click GPX (NOT "GPX GC". That is more compatible with the Groundspeak version of GPX files, but will not show Found logs properly.)
10. Your file will now be downloaded and you can process it in GSAK or however you plan to use it.

Option Two - An Alternative for Finds, Attended or other logs.
1. Go to the Seek A Cache page.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page, until you see Search for Logs.
3. Select Log Type (Found, Attended, Etc).
4. Enter your Username (exactly).
5. Click Search.
6. Results will display.
7. Scroll to the top of the page.
8. Enter a name in the top field and click Submit. (This way, when you download it, it will be easily identifiable. In the future, you will be able to select it below and overwrite.)
9. You will now be on the Collected Queries page.
10. Locate your newly created Query.
11. In the Downloads column, click GPX (NOT "GPX GC". That is more compatible with the Groundspeak version of GPX files, but will not show Found logs properly.)
12. Your file will now be downloaded and you can process it in GSAK or however you plan to use it.

Note, most (all?) online geocaching statistics sites will only accept the specific My Finds Pocket Query from Groundspeak, but you should be able to use GSAK or other programs to generate stats.
