Finding Carrigshouk
And so it falls to me to confirm what the eagle eyed Geo has already spotted, Carrigshouk has been found and promoted to the Arderins. Also did anyone spot that Beenabrack in the Brandon group has been moved to the east and increased in height by eight meters?
A little bit of history in summiteering in Ireland.
But how did we get here?
Last year a small band of dedicated MViewers got together and hatched a number of plans.
One of these went something like "wouldn't it be nice to accurately correct and verify the summits on our lists". We went through many options from the Abney level to a Total station surveying apparatus(think modern theodolite). At the end of last year we managed to secure a Trimble GeoXH differential gps.This is an amazing piece of equipment which records position and altitude to an accuracy of 0.1 mtrs using its own readings which are then crossreferenced with data recorded by OSI at online base stations throughout the country.
It takes these readings usually in under a minute.
This allows Mountainviews to verify the lists it publishes and maintains.
It also allows us to apply corrections with authority, something that has been up to now all but impossible to Irish list makers.
We have already surveyed nine summits since January and we will work our way through a list of summits and members queries in the next year or two.
It is an exciting time for summitteering in Ireland and we will be updating this site regularly with our findings.
I will be at the talk in Dublin on Friday , if anyone would like more information on this project or a look at the unit please feel free to ask at the event.
