Map Scale on Topo Prints and New Search Feature

Olympic Ski Touring
Winter is Coming

I've just added distance scale, bound information and an up to date magnetic declination estimate to the topo maps printed through hillmap. I've also added a tool showing estimated spacing of 200ft contour lines produced by a 30° slope to aid in route evaluation in the field. This should work with the major contours on most topo maps, let me know if you would find other spacings better.


I've also updated the search feature on the main page so that it will autocomplete with places names. It is biased to find place names year you so you can use it to locate landmarks along a potential tour while trip planing.
