We just completed a second major update to peakery’s underlying peak data (the first being our recent clean up of regions).
Now featuring 587,000 peaks!
This update adds 250,000 new peaks to the existing 337,000 for a grand total of over half a million peaks. Some countries gained a huge number of new peaks. Here are the top 25 countries that gained the most peaks:
|Russia||31,816 total peaks||+ 24,687 new peaks|
|United Kingdom||12,512||+ 7,771|
|Czech Republic||6,978||+ 6,107|
|Saudi Arabia||5,196||+ 4,389|
|United States||71,168||+ 3,296|
Overall we added peaks to 195 countries and territories; go to the Regions page to check out any of these. We plan to add more peaks over time.
Improved summit locations & elevations
Since the launch of the new peakery, we’ve also fixed the locations of over 72,000 peaks and the elevation of more than 16,000 peaks. This is on top of the 1000s of valuable contributions from the peakery community.
- added country and region names to every peak’s URL
- changed all existing unnamed peaks to the default ‘Peak 1,234 ft’ or ‘Peak 1,234 m’ naming-scheme
- fixed bug in Log climb date picker (Windows/Chrome)
- fixed the summits that show up on Challenge > Members pages
- fixed the summits that show up on Profile > Map
Why we’re doing this
peakery’s long-term goal is to become the world’s ultimate resource to plan, collect, and share your mountain hiking & climbing adventures. An important ingredient in this is accurate and comprehensive info for every mountain in the world. It’s going to take years of constant improvement to get there, but with your help we plan to keep chipping away at it.
