I was wondering what is the easiest way to get XY geocaching coordinates (by a particular Area of Interest (AOI)) data in a spread sheet format that I could covert to a GIS layer? On the Geocaching.com website you can search by different AOI, but I do not see a way to mass export XY coordinates.


If you have FME Desktop, it's possible to extract some informations with API and convert the information to SHAPEFILE or another GIS file.

Or if you copy some geocaching data with xy in Excel, you can generate a shapefile with ArcGis.
