Hunting the Needle in the Haystack: Games with GPS
Webb, Robert M. (2002) Hunting the Needle in the Haystack: Games with GPS. Measure and Map Australasia, 18, pp. 39-41.
Since the removal of Selective Availablility (SA) from the GPS, users have been able to position themselves to within 10 metres. There are a number of recreational pursuits based on this new capability. This article is about two: the degree confluence project and recreational geocaching.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
