360 Panoramas + PEAK LABELS

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Tue Apr 01, 2008 8:44 am

A bunch of you have asked for this, so I'm going to start adding peak labels to a large version of each 360 summit panorama. This will take a long time to complete and I'll update this thread as I get them done.

Beware! This pan is 3.5mb:

Later today, I'll change the summit panoramas page to include the new labeled versions...

Super cool... can you leave the cardinal directions in as well... maybe in a different color?

I am horrible at identifying peaks from a summit (unless I have climbed it, usually). This is amazing. Of course, at this point I wouldn't expect less!

MountainHikerette used to carry a Colorado map for that purpose. It was the recreation version with different colors to indicate elevation. The fourteeners were labeled on it. The eastern part was torn off. I would then orient the map with a compass. We could then look across the map relative to the mountain we were on to identify the other peaks.

I have also used my GPS that way, since a lot of the other fourteeners were already in it as waypoints, I could then get a bearing to those peaks which I would then dial into my compass.

I’ll have to get another one of those recreation maps. Mmmm, I wonder how well I can print these panoramas?

Anybody else getting spring fever?

Holy crap yes! Of course, the on-again, off-again snow going on today isn't helping... [-X

I was thinking about a way to trace it out like the Beatles did.

I'm sure Bill has a nifty little program that would automaticly do that! It sure would be easier than carrying my laptop up!

Fantastic job (as usual) on the peak labels Bill . Looking forward to the rest of them. Just wondering, can I see Redcloud and Sunshine between Vestal and Handies ?

That's Uncompahgre that you see between those 2 peaks. I labeled it (and Wetterhorn) on the Eolus and Sunlight pans.

I labeled a few panos a couple of years ago, it is a lot of work. I made a little Excel program that gave me the compass degree and distance from any peak to all the rest, 13K and above, that helped tremendously.

You have a great collection of pano's, I guess you took a pano shot every time you summitted, nice work.

I see you do not have Sneffels, it happens to be one I completed. the labels like 77D are the compass degree True.

and a printable version

removed, looks like I did not upgrade the printable verision, maybe later.
