Geocaching is a GPS-enabled treasure hunt. After only about twelve years from its birth, Geocaching has attracted over five million geocachers all around the world. The goal of this study is to understand psychological motivations of Geocaching practices within the community of worldwide geocachers. Understanding Geocaching motivations could lead to improvements in location-based games and also aid in promoting the Geocaching community. Results of two online surveys indicate a variation in Geocaching motivations.
