What Do You Need to Create a New GeoCheckpoint

Everything what you need to start creating new GeoCheckpoints which can be found by other users is a GPS device or a smartphone with built-in GPS and free account here at GeoCheckpointing.com.

Find Interesting Places

The goal of every GeoCheckpoint is to show others something interesting. It can be nice place in the nature, historic building, park, lookout, etc. -- simply anything worth to visit. Every time you find such place note its coordinates. Please keep in mind that the distance between any two GeoCheckpoints should be at least 250 meters.

Respect Local Restrictions

Keep in mind there may be restrictions regarding GeoCheckpoints' placement in some countries. E. g. many countries do not allow to enter outside the trails in national parks. If you are going to create GeoCheckpoint in a private land, you need a permission from the owner.

Submit GeoCheckpoint for Approval

Log in to your account and click the Create GeoCheckpoints link. You will be asked to fill in information like GPS coordinates, description, country, etc. When you submit a new GeoCheckpoint, an administrator will check out submitted data and either approve the GeoCheckpoint or contact you by email if necessary.
