I'm in the process of building a web site and I would like to incorporate a link to Navicache so my site visitors can find caches near their objective.
This is easy....have the link point to this page.
My data is in the popular deg.mm.mmm format as well as decimal degrees. Even UTM!
Is it possible to pass lat/long in the querystring to this web site to get a listing of nearest caches?
Edit ~ if so, how?
The suggested (and permitted) way to query the data is through the XML interface. More info on its use can be found in several threads here in the forums. After gathering the XML data you would then need your own script on your site to sort, store, and manipulate that data to meet your needs. Limitations to its use are posted within the datafile. Sending a direct query to the search form from an outside domain is not condoned and will be disabled.
