What is the Map@Syst Geocoin Adventure?

Map@Syst marketing campaign consists of participating in a world wide hide and seek adventure known as Geocaching. Geocaching is a recreational outlet for millions of people worldwide. Map@Syst chose to market eXtension in this manner because it reaches a large number of people and it also relates directly to our topic area of Geospatial Technology. Many people know what GPS, Geocaching, and Google Earth type things are, but they don't particularly know that those are collectively known as Geospatial Technologies. The focus of this adventure is to provide a fun way for people to find eXtension and to take advantage of the very nature of Geocaching.

Procedures Involved in Geocoins Once you receive a Geocoin you will need to go through the activation and registration process. If you are unable to go through these procedures, a Map@Syst leader can help you.
