      As far as I know...there is only a formula (Euler) to give you the number of closed areas , but not necessarily squares!

          Someone sent me this puzzle to figure out. It gives you the starting coordinates to then make a projection.

            It could be in text but I haven't found out how to convert it yet.

              Here is the full puzzle from the cache page I am trying to figure out.

              Sorry, I should have included everything.

              This is where I am getting this from.

              http://coord.info/GC139Y5


              It is a puzzle cache on geocaching.com.

              Here is the text from the page.

              Posted coordinates N 40° 59.000 W 112° 00.000

              ARRRGGHH, ELLO POPPY!
              CAP'N JACK HERE!
              Seek Out Me Sunken Treasure If Ya Can!
              If'n Yer Lucky 'Nuff To Find 'Er, Then You Can Take A Couple Of Pieces Of Me Treasure!
              But Only A Couple As So The Next Hunt'r Can Have Some Booty As Well!!
              CACHE IS NOT AT THE POSTED COORDINATES!
              Actually they are a little more than 30 miles away!" HEHEHEHE


              Stage One
              30-28,9-33,1-27,100-7,111-5,2-44,51-15,67-5,12-16,101-13,30-3,117-3,112-14,76-27,84-3,76-9,22-15,75-4,51-12,99-36,101-14,100-2,10-13,92-5,60-12,6-2,34-4,103-10,3-45,49-5,90-4,18-11,78-9,59-44,64-2,3-17,51-15,114-40,42-13

              Stage Two
              1021.94 feet @ 235.5 degrees

              The pictures on the cache page are no longer there and I was told they have nothing to do with solving the puzzle itself.

              What I am assuming is the stage one part takes you to a new location by giving you new coordinates. Once you are there you use the clue from stage two to project a waypoint from that location.
