New version of Hillmap going live next week

We are launching the new version of Hillmap next Tuesday!  Check it out here.

The new site is now significantly less buggy than the original.  It also is easier to use on devices with small screens.

Just click in the box to highlight the url to share.  Then copy and paste.

If you have been using the beta site for awhile now, we've also fixed bugs that some of you have reported: the gpx import tool found on the Tools tab is fixed, it is easier to select the url on the share link screen, and we are now using Caltopo's new slope map.

In other interesting news, the Hillmap custom slope analysis tool is not working while the government shut down is on.  The tool works by calling data from the USGS website, which is not possible at the moment.  It should be up and running again as soon as the government is.

The red arrow points to the menu button for a small screen


  • When you access Hillmap from a small screen, the top bar navigation is replaced by a menu button on the top right of your screen.  You can find all of the tabs and tools there.
  • The new Hillmap is much faster.
  • The user interface is updated and simplified.
  • The print screen has been updated to give you more support and options.
  • The Data and Analysis tab is now named Overlays.
  • There is a new Tour tab that has basic information on how to use Hillmap, as well as links to blog articles on different features.
  • The Points tab now has a link to peakfinder.org so you can see the view from your point.
  • Clicking on the Hillmap logo on the top left of the screen collapses the menu bar so that you have more room on screen to explore the map.
  • The new Caltopo slope overlay shows more slope increments (seven instead of four), however the slope overlay does not show up when you are zoomed in all the way.

Some info about the USA schools you can find in this blog post. That's why I think that you should check it out as soon as possible.

In other interesting newsletters, Holmap's traditionally does not work to analyze the callback while the government is closed. This tool works with an application from the USGS website, which is not possible at this time. I need essay writing uk now. This should be taken up soon and when the government is there, it will stop again.

That’s not who I am. I’m not the woman you should feel okay doing that in front of just because I’m “cool”. I honestly think it’s time to take a hard look at that term and start defining ourselves differently.Nigerian 419 scams

Granny keeps you locked in her house. Now you have to try to get out of her house, but be careful and quiet. She hears everything. If you drop something on the floor, she hears it and comes running. You can hide in wardrobes or under beds. You have 5 days.

This’s what I’ve been looking for. A perfect navigational system for us hiking lovers! Like, I’ve planned a trip to Cummins Hills for a long time with my buddies. All that we were missing was an actual guide, and I think Hillmap will do that for us. Plus, going to buy assignment online by top experts is how I’ve managed to submit all of my hefty college tasks with the top quality. Leaving me all the time to experience that legendary hill.

Adventure is what I am about, like my grandfather I always wanted to be a daredevil like him, climbing those huge uneven mountains. Well, I was about to start mine, by trekking every mountain in my country, and the hill map did me wonders in guiding me through the landscape and topography of each. I spent so much time away from my studies being a commerce student, that I had to hire microeconomics assignment help from the best writers to give me the liberty of taking on this adventure
