Tracks: Up! Walks:Down!
Context of comment:I am wondering if there is a future for the “Walk” Section. I feel such a weight of responsibility regarding these uploads, that, to date, I have managed to create only two Walks. I suspect that many members are a little bit intimidated at the thought of the high standards that are required. I contrast this problem with the runaway success of the Tracks facility. I suppose the latter is extremely “user friendly” in that the Track is uploaded automatically, and the software carries out certain calculations immediately. Ideally, I would love to be in a position to integrate a Track into a formal Walk. In the meantime I have done my best to give a reasonably detailed account of the problems that one might encounter when I am uploading a Track. Mind you, I am interested in everybody’s Tracks, even if they only jot down a few lines. That is because I can see on the map in front of me exactly where they have gone, and I can make my own assessment of some of the implications. Finally, when I uploaded my recent Walk on Mweelrea, I encountered a little “bug”. One is permitted to upload three photographs. For some reason (almost certainly caused by my tendency to constantly edit and re-edit my “live” work) the programme will not allow me to upload the third photograph – it simply repeats the second photograph. Do not get excited about this! It is almost certainly a problem of my own making.

Am I alone in thinking that the Tracks facility has been such a success so as to taper off interest in the Walks facility?
