Treasure chest maps by areaFollow

I was thinking we could all keep an eye out for treasure chests and log the information about them, the area they are in, and what you got etc. Eventually these location could all be put on a map and when you go on leves you would have some general idea of where to keep an eye out. Somehow I doubt the appearances of chests are COMPLETELY random, so this would be a nice resource.
Can't make a suggestion like this without contribution so:

Emerald Moss, Leve ; Sapped Saplings (naked moles); 1 star
On the path to them @ 20/16 right near the first group of moles
inside; 1,400 gil

I just had the idea and only found one chest so thats all i got, later

Does it seem to everyone else that there is ALWAYS a chest on a leave, it's just a matter of finding it? I can usually find it (easier in Gridania), but not always.

On the lvl 20 quests I am getting between 1k-3.5k with occasional items like Aldegoat horns.

The benefit to grouping I suppose, assuming there is an 100% chance of a chest appearing, is that you have more people covering more ground with more eyes having a chance to find them.

The problem is I saw a chest, but died in the leve... returned, and the chest was near the camp and not where I saw it when I died. This leads me to believe I either saw some one elses chest and mine hadn't loaded when I initially ran past, or that the chests spawn very random.

I understood that chests only show up during your leve, and only you and others sharing your leve can see it/get the reward.
