Hill Lists 7.0 now available

February 20, 2021 Comments off

hlicon57 Updated the underlying Database of British and Irish Hills (DoBIH) to version 17.1, a routine update with changes to the Marilyns, HuMPS, Simms, Dodds, Munro Tops, Nuttalls, Deweys, Donald Deweys, Highland Fives and County Tops.

Added support for the SIBs (Significant Islands of Britain), most are not easy to get to!

Added support for the Tumps (Thirty and Upward Metre Prominence). This is a huge list of over 17,000 hills. For performance reasons it is managed via a new Tumps filter on the location view (4th tab, top left). You can select and tick off hills from the map, and they will be included in the all ascents/hills view.

To help with ongoing lockdowns and staying local, added another filter to show all hills (including Tumps) on each of the Landranger 1:50k map sheets. This defaults to your local map sheet, but you can pan around the country to explore further afield. Enjoy!

Ascents on an individual hill page are now shown in descending order, most recent first (as they are on the all ascents screen). For hills with lots of ascents (10 or more), added a quick index to scroll to specific years.

Performance improvements, especially when loading maps.

Backup improvements.

MINOR UPDATES …

7.0.1 was released on 5th March to fix a bug, specifically to do with importing Tumps.
