Mark 2 - Very Exciting!
Context of comment:Just began mucking about with the new options! (Click on Summits | Areas, Features, Routes.)
I must say that I have been eagerly awaiting these changes, and find them very exciting. I have always wondered if the day would ever arrive where we would have more detailed mapping. And when Simon introduced the GPS Tracks Upload I thought that this was a huge advance. The success of the Tracks idea is there for all to see. Its amazing to think that Simon was encouraging folks at the WAI meet a few months ago to have a go: now the Tracks are standard. This latest development is a futher evolution and I feel that it will move the site on to a higher level. I experimented with the Achill area and went straight to the detailed map. I'm used to expanding the size of the map by dragging it open. I always add both the OSI 1: 10K and the Contour features when looking at Tracks and its the same with the new system. It gives a whole new dimension to the data available. What a joy to be able to click on pre-uploaded Tracks. I'm intrigued by the new photo scrolling system which enables one to get a feel for all the photos of a particular mountain and its provenance as part of one sequence. Its a great piece of work, and I know that I'm only scratching the surface so far. Simon, I salute you once again!
