Description EN

The GPS system was developed by the US Department of Defense and was only accurately available to the US government and military.  On May 1, 2000, President Bill Clinton announced that the GPS signal would no longer be scrambled, and GPS would now be accurate for civilian use within about 10 meters.  Two days later, Dave Ulmer decided to celebrate the new utility of GPS by hiding a bucket filled with trinkets (swag) in the woods outside of Portland, Oregon.  He announced the GPS coordinates of the first cache on an online bulletin board called sci.geo.satellite-nav.   The first cache was found withing one day, and new caches began to pop up in California, Kansas, and even Australia.  The next step was to organize all the cache announcements.  GPS Stash Hunt Homepage webpage was set up within a few days and by the end of the month Matt Stum coined the term “geocaching.”  In September, Jeremy Irish set up the website  Other geocaching sites would follow including Navicache in 2001 and Terracaching in 2004. In 2010, this was established offering many innovations to the game. There are currently more than 1 million caches hidden around the world with more than 5 million active cachers.
