To web-designers of outdoors-pages:

There is a simple way to embed PeakFinder to your website. The bad weather here in Zurich gave me time to write a brief documentation: http://www.peakfinder.org/about/resources/api/


Fabio Folgori from 2000appennino.it made a nice example:

When I became interested in mountain vistas 4 years ago, I encountered the panoramic drawings of the end of the 19th century. Since then I have been fascinated by the challenge of developing a computer program to make such detailed drawings from any mountain.

The first versions of PeakFinder have been limited to the representation of the mountain silhouettes. In recent months I’ve been trying various approaches to improve the representations with more details. I discarded many ideas. Some nice ideas have remained and from them I developed the latest version of PeakFinder. Newly added methods add subtle shades to the landscape. These give the appearance of more depth. Additionally, geo-data such as lakes, seas and coasts are drawn in.

To see this, visit www.peakfinder.org.

I hope you like the new webpage. I’m very open to suggestions, requests or further ideas. Please share on social networks.

Best regards
Fabio

Explore more mountains than any mountaineer! PeakFinder makes it possible...
Introduction

The mountains are calling! Explore more mountains than any mountaineer! PeakFinder makes it possible... and shows the names of all mountains and peaks with a 360° Panorama display.

The idea for PeakFinder came about as mountain wanderers were bickering over and complaining about the names of some mountains. In 2010, Fabio Soldati founded PeakFinder Ltd. and brought PeakFinder Alps App for the iPhone onto the market. Later, versions for markets in the US and Canada were introduced, also for Android and Nokia Symbian.

The PeakFinder App has become one of the most successful and remarkable apps in product selections for outdoors.

Through the market successes of this mobile app and through the inspirations of technical challenges related to panorama-technology, the PeakFinder Web is in existence. For that, the arguments and bickering regarding surrounding the names of mountains and peaks is long part of the past.
