New Ordnance Survey map.
Context of comment:Take a look at the recently added Ordnance Survey mapping.
Select Set Area Map On in the summits page (apologies, Republic only so far) The map presented is a cut-down Ordnance Survey 1:50000. Unlike the full map it does not include height information such as spot heights, contours or hill shading. It also does not include Waymarked Ways

However it it useful because it allows you see the roads, lakes and rivers near the summits we feature. This will often include the access points.

The features of this map display are in development and suggestions are welcome. We would consider for example putting markers for grid references people mention in their comments onto the map.

Bencorrbeg --> Binn an Choire Bhig
Context of comment:Should Bencorrbeg mountain not be called by its correct name "Binn an Choire Bhig" as it is in the Gaeltacht. The Irish name means something, the English version does not.
Message:Change Bencorrbeg to Binn an Choire Bhig

Mountains climbed area diagram.
Context of comment:Emerging feature.
Message:There's a new feature to help you locate what you have climbed or not climbed in any area -- a colour topographical map.

Go to My View | Climbed Log

Change "No map" to "Selected Points" and click on "have not climbed"

Click on New List.

A map should appear.

This is working well enough to be useful, however there are some obvious improvements. You are welcome to make suggestions.

GPS corrections.
Context of comment:Note: Mountain Views now accepts GPS readings from users for mountain summits. The purpose of these is to correct the GPS information the site gives out.
If you are using GPS, take a reading for summits that you visit. Go to the page for the mountain and click on "Amend" beside the grid reference to enter your suggested position.
You will be doing your bit for everyone!
