Does anyone know of a website that will generate something like this:

Map

I'm assuming that there's a GSAK macro that will do it, although I'm not a big macro user (I use 1 macro and would like to keep it that way).

Preferably I'd love to see one with different levels of shading based on how many caches you've found there... I think the map I have is from itsnotaboutthenumbers, so it's a few years old now..

GSAK macros are the only way I know about.

Ugh. I really don't want to increase my macro count to 2.

Do you have something against macros? What if we called them "Plugins" or "GSAK Apps"?

The terminology might be part of it, but for me it's venturing into the unknown. The only macro I use is one that SJ introduced me to a while ago, and it was extremely easy to use.

Being able to upload my finds PQ to a website is about as easy as it gets...

It sounds though like I'm going to have to look into the macro thing a little more... One of these days I should probably upgrade GSAK to the next major revision as well... Smile

My Geocaching Profile.com will give you a map of all the US counties, the ones you've cached in are red. But, I haven't figured out how to just get an individual state.

The FindStatsGen macro is so easy that even I can figure it out. If I can do it, you can do it.

Never say CAN'T.

I've been working on transcribing some of the help I've been giving out onto a blog for people.

I don't have anything for the mapping counties but some other stuff.
