OK. Thanks to all for your comments and improvements. I'm calling it done and ready for prime time.

The map interface is here:

The flyer is here:

It would be great if people could print the flyer and put up in mountaineering stores in your area. I'm sending to a friend to post in Bishop. Don't know what REI policy is, but if people could take them by there, that would be appreciated. Links from Facebook etc. would also be terrific.

There's a new QR code in the flyer. According to Esri, their site will do better with phones etc. in June but at the moment it's not totally up to speed (thanks snusmumriken). Everyone's thought and comments were valid, considered and appreciated. We'll see how this version goes.

The recent Yosemite online SAR flyer is great, though for a narrower task (immediate and active SAR). I talked to YOSAR, where we've been talking about the best way to do this sort of stuff for a long time. Note that they asked for photos. They got one showing the pack by the railing and were able to establish an early timeline from that.. That's just to say that the art of getting information out online and social media is improving. As you folks see stuff online, send me any thoughts or reactions you have and I'll try to get them adopted if they look good.

Thanks again,

George

Nice work George, it looks like it was well worth the effort. :thumbsup:

explore the area around Pincho"


Can the misspelling of Pinchot be corrected in the hiker's quote?
