This map is an absolute show-off in multiple ways. Its 3d clarity alone is immersive enough to explore happily for ages, especially if you want to plan or recreate a leisure walk in the great outdoors. Unlike most of our other dynamic maps, which are 2d, this one lets you tilt the horizon and change your bearing to face any point of the compass, like in a video game. Then, on top of that, we have fed in the data for 3,658 mountains which you can interact with in various ways through direct tap of summits on the map or using a multitude of filters for listings in the side panel. Oh, and you can search for any mountain by name and choose to see listings alphabetically or by height.
We’ve made this demo for two reasons: one is because we like hill-walking and think this is a genuinely useful map for it, and the other is to try to persuade more clients to use 3d mapping and understand how filters might be deployed with their own data whether in 2d or 3d.
Below is a view of the spreadsheet feeding data directly to the 3d mountains map. (The original data comes from the Database of British and Irish Hills.) The filters are created by our programming for content in the Range and Classification columns.Open full size map and start exploring the landscape and filters!
