We already have programs on the web that take a start street address
(or city), an end street address (or city), then draw you the fastest
or shortest route between them. How difficult would it be to program
something that took this output, translated the route into a list of
lat/lon coordinate pairs, say one pair for each mile marker along the
route, then allowed the user to find the caches within a user-specified
distance adjacent to the route? Seems like this should be fairly easy
to program. I have requested this feature from geocaching.com for the
last two years. Instead we got some new icons. Please contact me
directly if you have any idea how this can be implemented and put up on
the web, and let's do it.
