What Does This Site Do?
My Geocaching Profile.com analyzes your geocaching finds and creates a personalized profile that displays your geocaching statistics, charts, and maps. In addition to calculating basic statistics like find counts, difficulty/terrain averages, and breakdowns of cache types and container types, the site can also show your first to finds, United States county and state maps, and progress on various challenges like the DeLorme, Fizzy, and Jasmer challenges. You'll even be rewarded special badges for stellar geocaching achievements.

You can enjoy your profile on the site or set your geocaching.com account to display this profile so other cachers can see your accomplishments. Check out our profile for an example of what the site can do.

Instructions

First Off!

First off before you begin, you need to be a Premium member of geocaching.com to use this service. Only Premium members can download the special "My Finds" pocket query that is needed to create a profile on this site. Sign up for a Premium membership at geocaching.com.


Creating a MyGeocachingProfile.com Account

Before you can upload your finds and start customizing your profile, create a My Geocaching Profile.com account. Mygeocachingprofile.com is run independently of geocaching.com so your geocaching.com username/password does not automatically work. You can of course create an account using the same username as your geocaching.com account if you wish. The account is free and you can delete it at any time.

Create An Account Now!


Getting Your "My Finds" Pocket Query File From Geocaching.com

Everytime you want to update your statistics, charts, and maps with your new cache finds, you'll need to download a new My Finds pocket query from geocaching.com. Go to the geocaching.com "Your Pocket Queries" page, make sure the "Active Pocket Queries" tab is selected, scroll down to the "My Finds" section, and click on the "Add to Queue" button. A new My Finds pocket query will be generated and geocaching.com will notify you via email when it is ready to download. Note that you cannot use pocket queries that you create/customize yourself on geocaching.com or other sites. Only this special "My Finds" pocket query ZIP file will work. Other files will give you an error if you try to upload them.

The My Finds pocket query can only be downloaded once every three days.




Uploading Your "My Finds" Pocket Query to MyGeocachingProfile.com

Whenever you want to update your statistics, charts, and maps with your new finds, you need to upload your latest "My Finds" pocket query zip file. To upload the file, go to the Upload My Finds Pocket Query page. Select the "Choose File" button and browse for the My Finds pocket query zip file on your computer. After selecting the file, click the "Upload" button. You'll need to wait for your web browser to upload the file. Uploads can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes depending on the size of your file and your Internet connection speed. Once the file is uploaded, the website will begin to process your data. A green bar will advance to show you the progress. Again, depending on how many caches you've found, this process can take anywhere from several seconds to a half hour. It's OK to close the web browser or even turn off your computer if you need to. The processing is already taking place on our servers so it will continue no matter what.

Note: If you've already copied HTML for your profile to the geocaching.com site, then you're finished. Your profile on geocaching.com will automatically be updated!


Building Your Profile

Once your finds have been fully analyzed by the site you can go to the Build My Profile page to look at each profile section and customize your settings. There are lot of different settings and options connected to each profile section. For example, you can manually enter your lab cache finds and FTFs, change the interval used for generating your milestone list, indicate DeLorme pages for which you've been granted special credit, and much more. Your changes will be reflected in your profile the next time you upload your "My Finds" pocket query. Note that at the top of the page there are three links for "Statistics/Charts," "US Maps," and "Other Maps" that allow you to navigate between these different profile sections.

The Build My Profile page also lets you uncheck profile sections that you don't want to include in your final profile. These sections will always be available on the Build My Profile page, but will be left out of the HTML code for your final profile on the Preview and Export Profile page.


Previewing Your Profile and Exporting It To Geocaching.com

The Preview and Export Profile page allows you to preview your complete profile showing only the sections you've checked on the Build My Profile page. It also produces the HTML code that you need to display your profile anywhere else on the web. You can add this code to your geocaching.com profile or a personal website. When you upload new My Finds pocket queries, your profile images will automatically update here and on your geocaching.com profile page.

To display your profile on the geocaching.com profile page, highlight all of the HTML code and copy it using CTRL+C. Then go to the Account Settings Profile Information page and paste the code into your Bio field at the bottom of the page. When finished, click the "Save Changes" button.


Updating Your Profile

Everytime you want to update your statistics, charts, and maps with your new cache finds, you'll need to download a new My Finds pocket query from geocaching.com and upload it to mygeocachingprofile.com. You won't need to re-copy your HTML code to geocaching.com. The images displaying your profile will automatically update. You'll only need to re-copy the HTML code if you want to entirely add or remove a profile section.


FAQs / Troubleshooting
When I upload a pocket query, I get an error that it's an invalid file!

Everytime you want to update your statistics, charts, and maps with your new cache finds, you'll need to download a new My Finds pocket query from geocaching.com. Go to the geocaching.com "Your Pocket Queries" page, make sure the "Active Pocket Queries" tab is selected, scroll down to the "My Finds" section, and click on the "Add to Queue" button. A new My Finds pocket query will be generated and geocaching.com will notify you via email when it is ready to download. Note that you cannot use pocket queries that you create/customize yourself on geocaching.com or other sites. Only this special "My Finds" pocket query ZIP file will work. Other files will give you an error if you try to upload them.

The My Finds pocket query can only be downloaded once every three days.




When I try to upload my file, the upload bar just spins or restarts. The website never even gets to start processing my stats.

If your file won't upload, first check that you're uploading a .zip file and not the unzipped .gpx file. Geocaching.com gives you a .zip file, but some web browsers like Safari will automatically "unzip" the file for you when you download it so you're left with only the .gpx file. Uncompressed .gpx files can be too large for the site to handle. To fix, either "zip" your gpx file before uploading or set your web browser so it won't unzip the file when you download it. This is very easy. Instructions to stop Safari from doing this can be found here.

I can't sign in and the site isn't giving me any error messages.

If you're trying to sign in, but the site just keeps prompting you over and over again without any errors, try clearing your "cookies" in your web browser (if you're a more advanced computer user, you can delete just the cookie for "mygeocachingprofile.com") Cookies are small files that websites save on your computer to handle signing in/out of sites. Sometimes they get corrupted and you'll have issues signing into a site until you delete the cookie and get a fresh one. If you're not sure how to clear them, take a look at this webpage which explains how to clear cookies in each web browser.

My Lab Caches aren't showing up or contributing to my stats.

Groundspeak has not yet added Lab caches to pocket queries and therefore the My Finds PQ used by the site does not have your lab caches. However, you can manually enter the dates that you found lab caches so they'll be counted toward your total find count, cache type stats, and chronology stats. To do this, go to the Build My Profile Statistics and Charts page and scroll to the Additional Caching Information section. Under the Lab Cache heading, select the day you found a lab cache and add it to your lab cache list. You can add the same day multiple times if you found more than one lab cache per day. After you're done, upload your My Finds pocket query to refresh your statistics and your lab caches will be added to your statistics.

My Action and Photo Challenges aren't showing up or contributing to my stats.

Groundspeak has not yet added Challenge caches to pocket queries and therefore the My Finds PQ used by the site does not have your challenge caches.

I'd like to see my state's county map added to your site!

MyGeocachingProfile.com currently has several United States' county maps and we're working on developing the rest!

Some of my cache find dates are wrong and this is throwing off my GeoStreak and Days of the Year Chart!
First, make sure you have set your timezone from the Build My Profile Statistics and Charts page's General Settings section. Once you set your timezone, re-upload your My Finds PQ and see if this fixes your date problem.

If you still have an incorrect date, it might be an issue with the information in your My Finds pocket query. All once in a while we find that a My Finds PQ will have the wrong date information for a cache even after being corrected for your timezone. Groundspeak has some extra info on dates/times that isn't included in the My Finds PQ. There is one thing that fixes the problem. Go to geocaching.com and delete your original log for any caches that are registering the wrong date and then recreate the Found It logs for these caches. You should put the same "Found it" date of course so your stats stay the same, but just recreating the log is usually enough to straighten out the issue. You'll need to get the newest My Finds PQ after you make the change and then upload it to mygeocachingprofile.com to see if it worked. If you need help troubleshooting a date issue, please Contact Us and we can help.


Information About Profile Sections
Most of the profile sections are self-explanatory, but some are generated based on the specific rules of challenges. This section outlines these rules.


Traveling (Moving) Caches
Location-based sections like My Caching Radius and maps exclude any moving or traveling caches that you've found. Moving caches change location with each new finder. The finder takes the cache with them, rehides it and updates the coordinates on the cache homepage. These caches don't have a unique type on geocaching.com, but the cache page usually explains their behavior. Since you might have found a moving cache in your hometown and now it's half way across the world, these caches shouldn't be factored into your location-based stats. Please see our bookmark list of moving caches to find out which are excluded.

The "My GA DeLorme Progress" section is based on the challenge described in the "GCZ8XQ - Georgia DeLorme Challenge" cache. Our calculations take into account the requirements outlined in this cache description including the rules that:
  • Only caches with physical containers and logbooks will count in the Georgia DeLorme Challenge. The listed coordinates on the cache page will be the coordinates used in determining the page that the cache counts toward. The final stage of multi-caches, mystery caches, and letterbox hybrids must also fall on the same page as the listed coordinates. This guideline is based on the honor system.
  • On pages consisting of multiple map blocks a cache must be found for each block, not just one for the page. A total of 63 cache finds will be required to complete the Georgia Challenge.

  • All cache types count as finds or hides for the DeLorme Challenge with the exception of events (CITO included) and locationless caches.



My IN DeLorme Progress

The "My IN DeLorme Progress" section is based on the challenge described in the "GC14PRK - Indiana Delorme Challenge" cache. Our calculations take into account the requirements outlined in this cache description including the rules that:

  • Note that pages 31, 43, 60 and 62 have split maps. You need only find one cache on each of those pages, it does mater which section it is in.
  • All active physical cache types (including Earth caches and Letterbox Hybrid caches) count as finds or hides for the Massachusetts DeLorme Challenge.

  • The three map pages of 54, 62 and 65 count as one excluding caches that fall outside of Maryland and Delaware. (Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania). To further clarify, on map pages 54, 62 and 65, a cache in either of the two maps on that page (excluding caches that fall outside of Maryland and Delaware) will satisfy that page.



My ME DeLorme Progress

The "My ME DeLorme Progress" section is based on the challenge described in the "GCW8N6 - Maine's DeLorme Challenge" cache. Our calculations take into account the requirements outlined in this cache description including the rules that:
  • All cache types (including Earth caches and existing Virtual caches) count as finds or hides for the Maine DeLorme Challenge; with the exception of Events (CITO included) and Locationless caches. They will NOT be allowed

  • Due to the layout of the Nevada DeLorme book some quads overlap slightly. If a cache is in that “shared space” between quads, a cacher my log it in one quad or the other, not both. Of course a different cacher may choose to do the opposite. This also includes the small subsection of Quad 50 covering the Lake Tahoe area.

My RI DeLorme Progress

The "My RI DeLorme Progress" section is based on the challenge described in the "GC5DCAA - Rhode Island Delorme Challenge" cache. Our calculations take into account the requirements outlined in this cache description including the rules that:
  • This Challenge Cache requires that you find a cache on each of the 12 RI map pages. Pages 66, 73, and 75 each have two map sections, but you only need to find a cache in one of the sections on each of those pages.
  • Only physical cache finds within RI count, that means Event, CITO, Virtual, Earth, Locationless, and Lab caches are excluded. Only Traditionals, Multis, Puzzles, Letterbox Hybrids and Wherigos are acceptable. The posted coordinates for a cache are used when determining in which state or page a given cache falls, therefore, for puzzle, multi, wherigo and letterbox hybrid caches use the published coordinates, not the actual or final coordinates
  • Because there was previously a DeLorme Challenge cache in Rhode Island, Groundspeak requires that any cacher that found that Challenge cache to use a different set of caches to log this cache. That means that if you logged a find on the archived version of the RI DeLorme, then you will need to have at least two finds per page to log this one. You will need to provide proof for both. For those of you who began the previous challenge, or finished it but never logged the final, then you will only have to provide proof of one cache per page.
