More EastWest names added for summits.
Context of comment:EastWest mapping have brought out a series of maps, mostly 1:25k, which contain of course the details for a number of summits. Some the names that EastWest use are different from the official summit names or the names that MV use.
For example for Knockaterrif Beg, 679.3m in the Galtys MV has sourced two names:
Knockaterriff Beg and Cnoc an Tairbh Beag. Some months ago MV added two names sourced by EW: Little Bull Hill and Cruach a' Tarbh Beag. You can see this at mountainviews.ie/summit/141
This has been done as a service to hillwaling to make it easier to actually find these names and to know what their official or other names are. If you search for Little Bull Hill or Cruach a' Tarbh Beag you will find this page with its information including the other names.
Message:Recently EW has produced a new map for Mweelrea and Croagh Patrick. With permission from EW we have added names for 38 summits to MV.
So for example mountainviews.ie/summit/457/ with MV names Crott Mountain and An Chrot also has the EW name Sliabh Buí, We expect it will be indexed shortly by search engines.
Additional points:We hope the additional information and the existing information are a useful service to hillwalkers. As with any change there is a possibility of errors by us in transcribing. Let us know if you have any issues at admin@mountainviews.ie
Note: MV is not endorsing the accuracy or otherwise of the EW names - we are including them because the EastWest names are widely sold and it may be hard to find information about the summits named on EW maps.
We do not support the removal of well established and official names from new maps.
