GcSoft Geocaching Software
PQ to HTML v1.0c
[PQ to HTML]

Quickly view the information in a PQ file as a table in your favourite web browser.

As many avid geocachers know, one of the best perks of being a premium member is the ability to do a PQ and get all the caches in an area, along a path, or filtered by any number of fields. One of the challenges though is easily viewing all this information, especially in a concise form. Different programs exist that can open the GPX file created by a PQ, but some are complicated and may be hard for non-technical people to learn, while non-geocaching related programs may ignore the cache log information that is often of interest.

PQ to HTML is a simple program that will read in a PQ file and output a summary of the information it contains as an easy to view table in your favourite web browser. In the unregistered version of the program the caches are displayed in the order they occur in the PQ, and all the table information is in text form. In the registered version of the program the user has full control over which columns of information are shown in the output table, the results can be sorted based on these fields, and icons can be used to represent the terrain and difficulty ratings, as well as the different log types.
