Technical Hic-ups

Ok, this week we have faced a slight delay in our development. My home internet service went down last week and I had to wait a week for a tech to come and sort it out at the telecom's exchange. So updates have been non-existent. Sorry for that.

The response to the Mt. Kilimanjaro map has been good so far. Please post or email us your comments, so we can improve it. There was a bad link for the file at first, but we sorted that out quickly. Sorry for that as well.

We have doubled our computing power here at home base. This means that we can now create more maps in less time. So watch out for these coming through the pipeline.

Thanks for all the support and we look forward to where this project takes us.

New Data Soon!!!

It has been a little over a week since the last data update on the site. We have been hard at work sorting things out with the format of the site and also with some of the map products that we have on offer now. Things are moving ahead though.

I have just finished creating the Mt. Kilimanjaro Topographic map tonight. As far as I can tell, this is the first GPS contour map of the mountain available to the public, so we are quite pleased with this offering. The file size is just under 1.5 megs for the map, which will work nicely within your GPS. The map is considered a version 1.0, however we realize that there is a little bit more work to be done on it. Depending on the popularity of the map, we will spend the time updating the data in those small areas, but we felt like we wanted to get working on some of the other maps for now. So let us know what you think of this map and if you want us to spend more time on it.

I plan on putting this map up on the site within the next day, so please be patient while I get some other things finished as well. Take care and happy mapping.
