Wonderlands looks wicked!

hi Brian,

Wonderlands looks very cool. awesome stuff! Did you know when you working on the topos, and two routes share a segment you can snap the paths together? I've done this for one or two topos but I won't meddle too much. Now that you're really getting into the groove with it all, what feedback can you give about how to make things smoother? Is there anything that just gives you the shits? Anything you'd really like to see?

Thanks man. The more I work on the Crag., the more I am impressed. I don't really have any improvements to suggest. I want to add an overhead topo of Wonderland as you and Steve were discussing so I have to work out the best way to do that. I have a hand-drawn sketch that might do for now and then something more professional later.

Thanks for the snap tool, I used it on a few of the routes. Have added more topos now too. I just need to work out where one more group of climbs are and I'll have them all on photo topos. It has been good for me as I always struggled to find routes there.

Feel free to edit Wonderland as much as you want. I am guessing for the lines of some of the routes.

With the over heap topos, the way I want to try and solve it is using the google maps locations. eg make the existing maps like this:

Beulah: http://www.thecrag.com/maps#-30.482732,150.932613,14,,hybrid

Stonehenge: http://www.thecrag.com/maps#-29.841960,151.741911,18,,hybrid

To add locations go to each sector and click on 'Locate this sector'. This is probably best done with the help of a gps device at the cliff if the google sat photos aren't good enough.

Soon I'll embedded this location data into the guides in a similar style to the topos. Of course not every area has good sat photos. This is where I've been playing with Google Map maker to add in tracks and landmarks to google's street maps:


Last week this park on the map was just a flat green area, I've added all the tracks in. There are a few components not yet approved by google. You can add tracks, creeks, lookouts etc. It covers most of the bases. I haven't figured out whether it is going to be good for cliff lines or boulder outlines yet, I've got more experimenting to do.

The more we can leverage google the better :)
