One recurring subject the MT is asked about is whether summit X can be added to the database.
I think it’s fair to say that more often than not the answer is “No”, not because we’re grumpy old men but because its topographic prominence doesn’t meet the criterion for the association (usually 150m).
So, how do we know?
How do we go about making a list of qualifying summits for a new association or how to we check a list made by someone else?
I’ve attempted to answer these questions in a couple of postings on my blog.
My first post describes a simple method using flooding in Google Earth. Anybody suggesting a summit to add should please try this approach first as it will only take you a minute or two.
My second posting goes into more detail of the process we use in practise, for example with Landserf.
I hope you find these of interest.
