JING: Finding Cache Types in a State
There’s a new free tool called JING being used around the office. It allows you to record navigation on the computer for sharing. As I do Instructional Design for a living and am certified in several professional video-capture training tools, I thought it was worth a go. Hey, it’s free. Why not?
For my practice, I decided the new geocaching.com search tool might be a fun topic. One common request on the Southeastern Michigan Geocaching Group FB page is, “I’m traveling across state. How to I view all the events in a state? Am I limited to the new 30 mile radius?”
And, for me personally, where are all the remaining Virtuals and webcams in my path?
Yes, I know I can do some of this trickery using pocket queries. I can also use Project-GC.com or the GSAK Google macro. But when you’re settled in for the night and want to plan a quick adventure, the new search tool is pretty painless.
So, on this late Friday afternoon, I decided to take JING for a spin around the geocaching.com website and share it with you. No sound yet – I’ll have to play with it next time.
