Once you have found caches, you can tag and rate them. To do this follow these steps:

Contents

A: Setup your geoqo tagging server account

  1. Go to http://tagserver.geoqo.org/ and set up an account (free) if you want to publish your tags/ratings and retrieve other people's.

B: Import your found caches into geoqo

1. Get a "My Finds Pocket Query" that you get from the last button on the pocket query page at geocaching.com.

2. Import it into geoqo either using the command line or the Graphical User Interface (GUI)'s "Import Waypoints" button.

C: Tag and Rate your found caches

1. Run GeoQO and click on the Tag and Rate Found Caches Button. The Mark Caches as Found button will also offer tagging and rating support as you mark caches you've just found.
