Top Contributors, data cleanup, better region pages

Here are the Top 5 new things on peakery:

1.  New! Top Contributors page
top peakery contributors

A new place to recognize our members’ vital contributions to improving the quality of peakery’s peak information.  The long-term goal of peakery is to include accurate information for every peak in the world… from stats to summit logs. The Top Contributors page is a permanent shrine to recognize our top 50 members as they work to make peakery a better resource for everyone.

2. Data cleanup: added regions to 100,000(!) more peaks

updated regions in peakery

Part of a huge, ongoing data cleanup effort. Around 150,000 peaks out of 330,000 were missing a sub-region (doh!), so now we’re down to 50,000 without a sub-region.  We’ll continue to chip away at this.  In the meantime, we’ve updated the regional height ranks for all peaks on the site.

3. See the most/least summited peaks in each region

Now on each region page (like Italy or Colorado) you can sort peaks by most summits and least summits (in addition to sorting by elevation and name).  Lets you quickly get a sense of which mountains are most “popular” in a region… or which ones are off the beaten path.

4. Design tweaks

The site design is gradually evolving to be simpler and better organized.  We plan to keep improving the design over time.  If you have any design feedback/ideas please let us know, we could use the help.


5. New Peak Lists
Now featuring 79 peak lists from around the world.

Washington Mountaineers Everett Peaks

Colorado Bicentennial 13ers (work in progress)
Italy Apennine 2000m peaks (work in progress)

Know any good ones we should add?
