Carn changes using EastWest data.
Context of comment:We have been re-evaluating some summits as a result of improved map information from EastWest/ Bluesky. Assistance noted from Database of British and Irish Hills.
Message:The following are the results,
Muskeagh Hill, Wicklow, is now a Carn since it is just over 400m
Seefin N Top, Galtees, is now not a Carn, a result of a better definition of where its linking col is.
Sleamaine, Wicklow is now not a Carn as a result of better estimate of its col height and corrected definition of its linking col
Additional points:Nothing hugely dramatic here. Surprisingly there haven't been that many changes as a result of using EastWest/ Bluesky topographical data. Some places have been identified as candidates for surveying. For example, Leenane Hill might be an Arderin were it surveyed.
