Geocache Description:

No trivia searches, intuitive leaps, or math here. Just a simple visual puzzle.

Imagine flying over a city in an airplane. As seen from above, the buildings seem quite different from the way they look when you are standing on the sidewalk in front of them. And yet nothing about the buildings has changed.

This puzzle is based on the same concept. There are sixteen objects, yet seen from the front there are only four different views. And seen from the top, there are again only four different views. But every object with a similar front view has a different overhead view - sixteen unique objects.

To solve the puzzle, first match each object with its proper overhead and front view. Write your answers in the squares. For example, object 15 goes in square A.

As of May 2, 2014, the cache is at: North OP HN.JCJ West FL PH.JDD If you have the original solution, you can add .001 to N and add .015 to W, or just go 60 feet west of your original solution.
