Thanks - For the App

Postby Dr_Pepper » Thu Jan 04, 2018 9:50 pm

Hi just saying hello, and thanks for a great website and app.

We've visited many trigs on mountains and wondered how many there are if anyone's ever found them all. I guess now we have the answer.
Having visited the 2 highest trigs in 2017, we decided for a laugh to visit the lowest one on New Year's day. Also, We run a scout troop and I'm making it their new mission to find all the local ones.

Whoever wrote the app well done it's brilliant, perfect for locating the trigs. In fact it's so good, it appears to be better than the actual OS map app itself!!!

This may be a silly question, but why does the website not have such a good map built in? Or am I missing something and somewhere you can look at an area and see where the trigs are easily?

Thanks again for your work.

I suppose the simple answer is that T:UK was designed and built in the days when licensing restrictions prohibited easy access to Landranger mapping; it might be different if Teasel was starting from scratch nowadays.
