Waypoint Shortcut URL - coord.ch

Postby DudleyGrunt » Tue Aug 07, 2012 10:47 am

I've been using coord.ch as a short cut for OpenCaching.US for a while, but had never actually visited the main site, until now.

Not only does it work with all these sites, it's shorter than using Groundspeak's coord.info.

Currently supported listing pages:
OU - opencaching.us - North America
OB - opencaching.nl - Netherlands
OC - opencaching.de - Germany
OK - opencaching.org.uk - UK
OP - opencaching.pl - Poland
OS - opencaching.no - Norway / Sweden
OZ - opencaching.cz - Czech Republic

GA - GeoCaching Australia
N - navicache.com
OX - Garmin opencaching.com
TC - terracaching.com

GC - geocaching.com
PR - geocaching.com profiles
WM - waymarking.com

Currently supported Trackables:
GK - GeoKrety.org
TB - Travelbugs

Usefulness of using this is that if you know the waypoint, you can amend it to the URL, to create a shorter one.

Such as...

Not Those Six Flags (OU0001) by kedge
URL options would be...
1) opencaching.us/viewcache.php?cacheid=001
2) opencaching.us/viewcache.php?wp=OU0001
3) coord.ch/OU0001

It doesn't give anyone access to anything they wouldn't have by using the longer URL, but I find it easier to remember and it takes up less space, when sharing links.
