Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game for Global Positioning System (GPS) users to track the location of caches (treasures) all over the world and share the location coordinates online.
A cache location is entered as a "waypoint" to notify visitors where the geocache is hidden. Visitors are asked to leave something equally valuable for the next visitor.
