GSBuilder - Geocaching statistics generator

I know there are many applications that can generate your geocaching statistics but either they do not provide too much information or they have too many features I don't need (like GSAK). That's why I have created a simple application that allows you to quickly generate nice statistics.

GSBuilder is being used by 1493 users with average number of finds equal to 1039,
all statistics generated by GSBuilder displayed 730855 times since 27/8/2010



The statistics can be generated in a few steps - open GPX/ZIP provided by geocaching.com, define Options (only the first time) and generate the results (you can also preview the results first). After Generate simply paste the clipboard content to your profile on geocaching.com and that's it.

Should you have problems accessing your profile on gc.macek.cc, please visit the forum for the answer.

I have especially focused on showing the finds on maps, currently there are 3 maps available but more can be added even by you (description how to do it will be added later).

To use maps it is necessary to register here (please do NOT use the same password as for geocaching.com). When registered you can upload the data built from your finds to the server and your maps will be automatically working in your statistics.

Currently there are several available layouts. If you create a new layout (see files .txt in the zip), you can send it to me and I will add it to next package (it is simple, just <STYLE> tag). Thanks to pixies for his layout.

The program currently "speaks" two languages - english and czech. If you wish to create a translation to other language, please let me know, it will take just a few minutes.

You can download the program from here.
