After a tip off from Andy MM0FMF (see the “Summits near Cardiff?” thread) I downloaded a Marilyns database from the excellent site:
for use with Anquet maps. The problem with this database is that it simply lists the Marilyns and does not include SOTA references, points details etc.
To get round this I’ve put together some code to automatically convert the Google earth .KML files to the Anquet .aef format. The results are attached for general use. The data employed comes from the .KML files listed on the site:
Thank you Mario (DL0QW) for making these available.
For now the file can be downloaded by clicking on:
and saving with a .aef extension.
(I intend to make a version available for hosting on this site if there is sufficient demand).
To make use of this file you’ll need to place it in your Anquet maps home directory, and then import it via the File menu (see post in the other thread).
I’ve tested the results as far as I have been able but do not have a complete set of 1:50000 maps nor the time to check every single summit. If anyone notices any major problems or omissions please let me know.
I note that the accuracy leaves something to desire - this appears to be a problem with the original .KML data rather than with the Anquet software (or my conversion routines). In any case all the summits I have checked appear to be within approx 50m of the apparent summit as viewed on an OSGB 1:50000 map - don’t go walking off any cliffs as a result of having downloaded the contents of the database into your GPS!
PS I also have a .GPX version of the file generated by Anquet for use with memory map. I have however been unable to test it. If someone with a MM license would like a copy just let me know.
