New Summits
Context of comment:Just to echo the comments of john_desmond, I've often wondered why Finlieve in the Western Mournes wasn't in the database despite being well over 500m. It merely gets forgotten about in the shadow of Shanlieve - perhaps it could be included also.

Add new 500m summit
Context of comment:New 500m Summit?
During a walk last weekend around Slievenamon in Co. Tipp, I also took in a small seperate summit to the NNE called Knockahunna. Looking at the OS map, the summit (S 3031 3276) is inside a 500m contour and is at least 40m above the nearest saddle. Assuming it qualifies, it would be a new summit for the database of summits on the mountainviews website.

"User grid refs on OS map." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: User grid refs on OS map. (Contract pics)

User grid refs and maps.
Context of comment:Finding User Gridrefs. Where there is a grid reference in the comment for a mountain, the system will now find it. It will then be highlighted and put onto any maps that are visible as a red triangle.

This is very handy if you want to illustrate where you started from and other points of interest. If you want to see the feature in use have a look at for example "Knockmeal" on which there are three user grid refs. As well as showing the user grid refs on the small lower navigation map (at the left) it will also show them on the OSI map (not yet Northern Ireland). Note that it is possible to move the middle of the OS map to wherever you click on it.

The following sorts of grid reference will be accepted:
R123123, R 123123, 123123 and other small variations

R1234512345, R 1234512345, 1234512345 and other small variations

When a letter is not given then the system will guess what you mean from the mountain area you are posting in. However it is always preferable to put the letter in.

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.

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!
