Hill Lists database update(s)

January 8, 2012 Comments off

A major update of the Database of British and Irish Hills (version 12) was released a short while ago, and I have now updated my app to use it (not yet released). There are a few changes to the minor lists, however version 12 still has Beinn a’Chlaidheimh as a Munro. This hill has been surveyed at 913.96m (2999ft) and the survey results have been accepted by the OS. The SMC has not yet demoted the hill to Corbett.

In speaking to Chris Croker, version 12.1 is due out later this month, so I will release version 3.2 of my app then to include both the 12.0 and 12.1 database changes.

Now that the main database includes Irish hills, it would be nice to merge this data with my current MountainViews lists, although that might be a challenge! Any comments from those of you in Ireland?
