SOTA Map?


#1

Hi All
Does anybody know of a map showing the general location of SOTA peaks? I travel around a lot whilst working and am pretty sure I could have activated peaks had I known I was near to them. A large scale map showing location/google earth/GPS list etc would be useful for those spur of the moment activations. Any help appreciated.
(going to London from Yorkshire tomorrow via the M1 if anybody can suggest anything??).
Cheers
Tim

As for maps there is a file in the old reflector files section with all summits to display on google earth.

If you have a satnav, there is a file showing parking places for all G and GW summits plus several Scottish ones at:

http://www.sotabeams.co.uk/cards.htm

Scroll down the page.

This is used by a great many activators.

You can download waypoint files for all the Marilyns (and many other summit lists) for all the popular mapping programmes from

The following formats are available: GPSU, OziExplorer, MagWay, DataSave, Gartrip, Anquet, Google Earth and GPX.

There used to be a mainland UK route-finding map with the SOTA summits marked and colour coded for points in the files section of the old SOTA site. Does anybody know if it is still accessible anywhere? It was very useful.
