Everest Map and Blogs
- The background of the map can be switched from Google satellite images to a detailed topographic map of Everest for additional detail, using the slider above the map. The topographic map may take a couple of seconds to load when the page is visited for the first time. After that it should be faster.
- Waypoints of the North and South route can be shown as pushpins on the map, by selecting the checkboxes on the top-right. When a pushpin is clicked, a photo and description appear in a typical "google balloon". When the "read more" link is clicked more info and pictures of the waypoint appear.
- The map can be zoomed out all the way to the entire world with the slider on the left of the map. This can be fun and useful when bloggers start writing on the way to the mountain, for example from Kathmandu.
- Climber locations, camps, pictures, and blogs will be added to the map soon
