It has been rather quiet on this blog due to far too little time to post, despite some very interesting caching adventures. I’ll see if I can add some in the next few weeks.
The adventures I’d like to cover here includes the most extreme series of 1.5/1.5 caches I’ve ever done and a fun story of a night cache I did whilst in Denmark in March.
However, those are for another day….
Some major changes have been completed on the British Isles maps I offer:
I have just updated the British Isles mapsets, including the OS 1:50K Look n Feel mapsets.
Not only that,but I have switched the contours used in them from the Scottish Mountaineering Club contours to ones I have compiled myself from the raw NASA SRTM data.
This means that the resolution of the contours is significantly better as they are now set at 10m intervals. It also solves the jaggy sea, coastline and disappearing bridges that occurred when using the SMC contours. This also removes the duplicate mountain peaks.
The OS 1:50K Look n Feel experimental mapsets are now progressing well,but still not considered to be out of beta.
Oh, and while I think about it, I now have an Etrex 30 to add to my Oregon 200. This has meant I have been able to confirm that all the maps I offer work on the Etrex 20 and 30 models. This includes the new contours only mapset.
That’s all I have time for….for now!
