The spreadsheet found above gives recently acquired GPS data for Jamaican cave entrances, in WGS84, in html. It must be remembered that cave preservation remains our top priority. All data supplied is given with the expectation that this priority shall be respected.

All additions to The Jamaican Cave Register are identified by **.

All positions with a stated accuracy of +/- 10 m and under are DGPS, (WAAS), averaged positions. Those positions with an accuracy of 5 m may be regarded as being +/- 0.1 in WGS84 latitude and longitude, (i.e. in Jamaica = +/- 3 m). Positions given as 10 m are DGPS, but measured from a waypoint. Accuracies of 20 m are non-DGPS, but averaged.Those positions shown as Confirmed, (CONF), have been checked at least twice.

As of June 22, 2004, all positions in the preceeding database have been collected by R. S. Stewart. Priority of inclusion has been given to recent data collected using a Garmin GPS76, (WAAS DGPS), with a GA29 external antenna. Several older positions for caves of particular interest are included, but indicated by decreased accuracy.

All cavers using GPS in Jamaica are encouraged to record averaged GPS positions for every cave entrance visited and to forward the positions, in WGS84, to this site, at the contact address found above.
Please indicate the model of GPS used, WAAS DGPS status, antenna, and duration of averaging. DOP numbers if recorded, as well as track files in Oziexplorer format (.plt) of averaging sessions, are very helpful. Contributions will be noted in the database.
