Re The '100 highest' in the personal log
Context of comment:Issue of order and summits apparently missing.
Message:Conor74.
orderUsually when you look at the 100 Highest they are sorted in descending order of height initially. You can change the sort order by clicking on the heading. For example if you click on "Summit" they will appear in alphabetical order. If there's some error in this, let me know since I was making some changes in this area over the weekend.
Summits apparently missing Yes, this is a bit of a perennial. It all depends on what criterion you choose for deciding something is an independent summit and what MV uses is prominence or the drop from the summit to a col leading to higher ground.
MountainViews has 100 Highest with 100m prominence.
Using this prominence means that important areas such as the Bluestack and Cuilcagh are included.
If you use a list with say a 50m prominence then some high summits will appear such as Caher but so will relatively smaller bumps like Greenane, Knocknapeasta or Slieve Binnian North Top. Cuilcagh and the Bluestacks will vanish.
Additional points:There is no absolute or right method of inclusion, but we think that 100 Highest with 100m prominence is simple and only includes very definite summits.
You can experiment with lists at Lists & Logs | Listing Programs | Simple Irish Listings which allows you to try various possibilities.
