As usual, a lot of time was devoted by several people this month to the SOTA summits data.
The visible part of the iceberg is the new VE3 - Canada - Ontario Association starting on April 1st, with 1.000 new SOTA references you can already discover on the SOTA Mapping Project .
For the invisible part, I would like to give special thanks to all people who contribute to the continuous improvement of the summits data, and in particular the SOTA Associations Managers.
The number of SOTA references keeps increasing fast. A side effect is that the number of border summits increases also, which can lead to difficult decisions between the Association Managers to decide which country will “own” these summits references. During the last months, several such cases have been resolved sensibly thanks to the efforts and understanding of the Association Managers concerned.
Also, several hundreds of improvements have been made to the SOTA data, from positions and elevations to summits names and duplicate removals.
Please keep sending your suggestions for improvement to the relevant Association Managers (in particular about local summits names or apparent insufficient prominence), so that we keep improving things all together one step at a time.
