Honouring Summiteers.
Context of comment:Nearly 700 MountainViews members have logged at least 10 mountains or hills that they have ascended. The number is rising steadily so we decided to improve the services we offer to such summiteers.
Message:CLICK here to check out here the start we have made. The stats have been speeded up and now show a count of what you have walked by the different agendas that MV offers such as "600m and up" or "Local 100" (how many of your nearest 100 summits you have climbed).

We've also put in more information in the "Member Details" panel that appears when you click on a members name. We have a map showing the summits you have climbed. Fascinating to see how different people have walked in quite different patterns of areas.

Volunteers Wanted
Context of comment:We are improving and adding to our lists of summits.
Message:We have already made some headway on a forthcoming addition which we hope will greatly enrich the interest and variety of the lists, allowing other members to describe their experience with places. Can you help by checking information on various summits? This is a fixed task, that is there is a fixed amount of work not a long-term committment. You would need a PC with spreadsheet such as Excel and some time. We'll give you support in making this a success.

Distance from home
Context of comment:How far away is that peak?
Message:Suggestion: Add a "distance from home" to the blue mountain data in the Summits tab. Could be dynamically calculated based on home location the user has entered into their profile. Suggest the field be right-justified after County name.
Additional points:Yes, happy to test.

Announcement, New Summits!!
Context of comment:After nearly five years MountainViews has made a major addition to our list of summits. We now include summits over 400m, where previously it was to 500m.

This represents an extra 380 summits. All but one of the existing 500m and up summits have got at least one comment, though the average number per summit is 5. Members have also contributed GPS readings and walks.

At MountainViews we believe lists are an agenda to visit interesting places. Do we expect people to put the whole list with 840 summits on their agenda? Only the keenest! We have introduced several new sorts of list for you to choose from:

The 100 Local (100 nearest to your location)

The 100 Best (as rated by the membership)

The 750m list (the highest summits - 76 of them)

and various other lists including of course the 500m if you have already started it.

Re Tracks on GPS map
Context of comment:Pazapas suggested layer on GPS map.
Message:This sounds like a great idea Pazapas. When we get a system to allow the upload of routes, tracklogs and possibly waypoints, POI (points of interest) then we can consider putting some of the data on the GPS map. We would need to consider very carefully what makes sense.
I have been using the 50m contours GPS map and find it very useful however in bad conditions it is really quite hard to see the contours. Perhaps layer tinting like the OS 1:50k maps would help. It will be necessary to think carefully what other data should be put onto the GPS to avoid clutter.

And as you say, it will also be necessary to control whatever data is produced very carefully.

Tracks on GPS map
Context of comment:GPS map with tracks and other data.
Message:If it is needed, I can add a new layer to the map of Ireland for Garmin GPS. It would be a layer in a separate file. This addon could contain well described traks/tracklogs, POI related to the tracks... For this work, members of Mountain Views will have to clean their data and check their accuracy first. Ireland is a bit far from me to control data on the ground.
(I will do it only with Simon Stewart authorization)

Re Allow GPS tracks to be uploaded for mounta
Context of comment:This is a good idea though I think it needs a little discussion. MountainViews knows how to handle GPS data added in "GPX" format. This is used by many programs that people have for use with their GPS ( such as GPSU ) and also by some GPS units ( such as the Garmin GPSMAP60 CSX which can output GPX format directly. Would this format be ok for upload and download?

Also, tracklogs would be displayed on the maps that MV provides, which would look very interesting I think, though it could get cluttered.

But why stop at track logs? I would have thought that uploading routes and/or waypoints would be extremely useful.

This would apply particularly in the new walks section of the site.
Message:Comments please.

Allow GPS tracks to be uploaded for mountains
Context of comment:It would be a nice feature to allow users to upload track logs of their walks. This would allow other members the ability to check out routes before going to new mountains.
Message:Upload facility similar to current GPS fix upload.
Additional points:I would be pleased to help testing.
