      Hi Josh,

      Cool scripts. Thanks! Now if you can only get google to draw the
      caches ON the map itself... ;-)

      Of course TC.com has that feature already, but it would be nice for
      GC.com caches too...

        Terracaching integration

        For any of you out there that are users of both google maps and the
        Firefox browser, I put together a couple scripts for google maps that
        will give you links to directly view any nearby geocaches/terracaches
        for the map that you are currently looking at. Should work even if
        you pan or zoom the map.

        If you'd like to try it out:

        1) Have Firefox installed.
        2) Install GreaseMonkey (if not already installed) at
        http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/index.html
        3) Point to either
        http://home.austin.rr.com/joshgunnar/userscripts/gmapscaches.user.js

        for Geocaching.com and/or

        http://home.austin.rr.com/joshgunnar/userscripts/gmapsterracaches.user.j
        s

        for Terracaching links

        4) While viewing one of the scripts from above in your browser, select
        'Install User Script...' from the Tools menu of Firefox.
        5) Load a map from maps.google.com and notice the cache links on the
        right-hand side. They will pop up a new window of caches closest to
        the center point of the map when clicked.

        This has helped me find caches in new places since I don't have
        premium pan/zoom membership on geocaching.com. Hope it's useful to
        someone else besides me!
