Editing trig point details

Post by Tyreless » 06 January 16 8:47 am

I created a listing for a trig point (TS2374 - Gungartan) but some of the details created by the website are incorrect and I want to edit them. It has called the waypoint "TP7263" when it should be TP2374. It has the height listed as 2053m when it should be 2068m.

How can I edit those details?

The TP number is sequential based on the last number created. So the TP prior to yours was TP7262. The TP number has no relationship to the TS number.
The height data comes from Google https://developers.google.com/maps/docu ... tion/intro It isn't updatable and is probably close enough for geocaching needs.
The Google Maps Elevation API provides elevation data for all locations on the surface of the earth, including depth locations on the ocean floor (which return negative values). In those cases where Google does not possess exact elevation measurements at the precise location you request, the service will interpolate and return an averaged value using the four nearest locations.
