Dear Geocaching Community,

Our group at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is continuing our research on Geocacher Motivations. Based on the responses from our initial survey, we have constructed a second one that is more targeted. It will help us gather quantitative data on what motivates Geocachers to play the game.
If you would like to support our efforts by providing your views, please fill out the short survey at the URL below. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Also, please circulate this to any geocaching circles you may know of!

Sincerely,

Dr. Robert W. Lindeman, Amirhossein Farvardin, Elizabeth Forehand
If you have any questions or concerns email us at geocachingsurvey@wpi.edu Very Happy

Any thoughts from people who filled out the survey? Who didn't?

I took the first and this one. I took it a few days ago and now really don't remember much about it. I know it asked some questions about how many trackables I have moved and how many I own. At first those types of questions seemed daunting, but I easily found them on my profile or statistics page. It also asked some questions about my motivations for geocaching. It was interesting the types of questions they asked...and didn't ask. Made me wonder what the purpose of the survey was.

I filled them both out. I think I added to the comments about some of the reasons I have enjoyed some of the well thought out urban caches in addition to those more nature-inspired ones they seemed to be asking about. I have enjoyed learning more about the local history of places I have visited looking for caches.
