- Upload your peakbase-file, or a gpx-file containing locations of peaks (skip this step if you are starting from scratch).
- Add peaks and ascents.
- Download your peakbase-file after you are finished editing.
- Start from the top the next time you want to register new peaks and ascents.
Peakbase is designed to avoid the need for a user account and a backend server. Instead of logging in, you just upload your peakbase-file, and when you are done, you just download the updated version of the file.
- Red markers: Peaks not visited.
- Blue markers: Peaks visitied.
Add peaks to your peakbase-file
Double click on map to add a point.
- Enter name and elevation of point.
- Click "Save" to save peak.
Register peak as visited
- Click on red markers (unvisited peaks) and confirm to mark them as visited. This will turn the marker blue.
Register ascent with date
- After you have registered a peak as visited, you may also register the dates of your ascent(s). Do this by clicking the blue marker, and enter the date in the menu to the right.
Download your peakbase-file
- When you are done with registering peaks, download your peakbase-file as .gpx or .json with the buttons in the top right corner beside the map.
- IMPORTANT: Only the JSON-version of the peakbase-file will contain the dates of your ascents. The gpx-file only contains the peaks and whether they are visited or not.
- The downloaded file has a timestamp in the filename, in order to easily see when you last updated the peakbase.
- While JSON is the preferred format for Peakbase (since this is more flexible, and allows storing for example ascent dates), the tool also accepts GPX-files. This is useful, since you can import files downloaded from for example peakbook.org. GPX-files can also be easily plotted in a range of other online and offline software tools, so it might be useful to keep both a GPX- and a JSON-version of your peakbase.
Peakbase is a minimalistic tool for peak baggers (those who collect ascents of peaks). The functionality consists of:
- Collect and visualize peaks you have not visited yet.
- Collect and visualize peaks you have visited.
- Register how many times you have visited a peak, and on which dates.
- You control your own data, and everything the tool does happens locally in your browser (except loading the background map). This means that you don't have to create a user account, or keep your personal data on anyone elses server. It also means that you can download this tool and keep it stored offline, and it will be usable forever, totally independent of whether the developer of Peakbase keeps the tool online or not.
- Peakbase can also be used to register other points of
interest as well. Example of locations to collect:
- Camp sites
- Bouldering sites
