Stats for Opencaching sites

Post by tomaszg » Mon Jan 27, 2020 10:46 pm

Hi,

I'm developing a tool to compute various statistics related to Opencaching activity and a cache map. It supports all OC sites which use OKAPI. The tool itself is accompanied by a simple webpage to visualize the results and you can check it out here: http://tomaszg.pl/geo/.

It is still work in progress and especially all international features were not extensively tested. Myself, I use only OC.pl so many things may break. Also I still intend to add new features, so all ideas are welcome.

If anyone is interested to contribute, the source code is hosted at https://gitlab.com/tomaszg/geostat.

Nice work there. I was impressed.
Worked fine for me with OCNA (we tend to prefer OpenCaching North America after we added the majority of the continent)
Thanks for including us.
Sorry I won't be able to help with the coding on GitHub but I will try to keep an eye on it there.

I will look into providing a link to your service on the OCNA site as well if you like.

I need to check all places and introduce a consistent notation (upper/lower case, dots and so on. Maybe I'll replace the names with icons from https://wiki.opencaching.eu/index.php?title=Main_Page Quite a lot of things are still work in progress.

BTW. I didn't find a good map of North America to include. The one I found on Wikipedia uses non-trivial projection and I would need to extend the code to support that situation. Right now it supports only maps in the most stupid projection - i.e. equirectangular. That's why some maps are weirdly deformed.
