Yes, this view analysis is incredibly GOOD!

This is a photo that I took from atop Atlantic Peak when I did the Tenmile Traverse. As I looked at the picture the peak way in the background just peeking over Lincoln's shoulder (indicated by an arrow) piqued my interest. I wondered what it was and using Google Earth I zoomed in and out and determined after about 1hr of messing around that it was Colony Baldy. Well with Caltopo "View from here" it took about 5 seconds! Just right click on any summit or location click on "View from here" and it will bring up a pop-up screen with a zoomable view with labeled peaks. I used to use "Hey What's That" to do peak ID, but this is WAY better.
