In the year 2006, the NSPS Board of Directors and Governors considered the hobby of geocaching as an excellent opportunity to promote the surveying profession at the national and state levels. The NSPS Board requests that the Board of Directors for each state society formally endorse the NSPS Geocaching Project and request volunteers statewide to assist with program implementation.

NSPS declared that it can benefit from this fast-growing sport by participating in the establishment of geocaches that promote the career of surveying. The sport of geocaching is gaining worldwide popularity at all ages and walks of life. Internet sites such as Geocaching.com are already in place providing resources such as off-site web servers, database storage, helpful information for getting started, and internet forums for feedback. NSPS geocaches will be spread across the nation, sponsored by state surveying organizations, and maintained by volunteer surveyors. Each geocache will target local surveying-related attractions and will be part of a nationwide effort to have interest in surveying ride on the growing popularity of the geocaching sport.

Visit the Geocaching.com website at Waypoint GCXWVE for an example geocache set as part of the NSPS Geocaching Project.

Registered Geocaching.com users may view geocaches for each participating state surveying organization listed on the NSPS "Profile Page" at http://tinyurl.com/5jrxzb.
