Opencaching Node ID

Node IDs are numbers used internally to uniquely identify each Opencaching node (website).

The purpose of these is to potentially allow information exchange between Opencaching nodes (like caches, users, logs, etc.). Another use is testing for developers in a virtual environment, without affecting the production website(s).

Node ID assignments

Each new website (node) must choose a unique, unassigned, NODE_ID.

Traditionally, NODE_IDs have been assigned by OCDE (Germany) management team.
