How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The coordinates listed will get you to a Wisconsin’s Center Of The Population Census 2000 roadside survey monument sign, which can be viewed from your vehicle when stopped along the edge of the roadway. This monument was set in October of 2001 and marks an offset to the symbolic center of population for the State of Wisconsin. The actual computed location of the population center lies north of this monument. Read the sign completely to find the number of feet to the north in which the actual population center lies, then use that number to complete the formula below to locate the coordinates of the final cache. Should be a quick find once you have the final coordinates, but if this area is busy at the time of your search, you might have to wait awhile or leave and come back a little later. You will be looking for a camo covered micro with a log only, so please be sure to bring your own pen or pencil to sign the log!
N43 44.0(AB) W088 59.(XYZ)
# of feet north _ _ _ minus 188 = AB
# of feet north _ _ _ plus 641 = XYZ
