Thank you Sasa, very much! You know, that you're the best man to do a page encompassing all Dinaric mountains. With such an interactive map, pointing on specific regions... But, I must be crazy, is that a good proposal at all?

haha, aren't we all crazy here Vid :-) Dinaric Alps group page?!?! Sounds like a great idea but... Julian Alps are like a baby group comparing to that! The area Dinarics cover is not much smaller than the area of the Alps! But you got me thinking and as I write this reply to you whole sentences are coming out of my head of what I could write. Maybe in the coming future, currently I have priorities like finishing article for Croatian National Geographic about Velebit. It is giving me headache for some time now. I have so much info in my head that I don't know anymore what to mention and what to leave and how to put it all together in meaningful piece.



By the way I have no clue how to make interactive maps :-) OK, you determine the area on the picture that is going to be the link and so on (theory is good but in practice?). But where do you get those maps in the first place, do you draw those ridges yourself?

Woooooow! That's great news, Sasa! Do make a great article for National Geographic, you're the very right person! Don't be satisfied until quality is the highest possible. Write only when you feel like writing (must be in a kind of a poetic mood). And - let me know when it's out, I'm buying that issue now.



How to do an interactive map? It's not complicated. First, how to do a map at all? I take an original map (with all details), put it in Power Point and there draw over it objects, like: ridges, summits, trails, roads, towns, all text etc. Drawing contours in Power Point is simple, the only problem I have is whether to do shading or not. Usually I draw all small details and group them, so that it's easier to layer them (back-front). To do shading is fast, but can be misleading. What does a certain gray area mean? The area on mountain with altitude higher than certain value? The area which is rocky, as opposing to grass or more flat terrain? When I have the map, I finally take the view (75%, 88%, ...) which gives me exactly 640 pixels. With the program SnagIt (shareware) I simple take that part of the screen and paste it in Photo Paint to make a .jpg file (640 pix wide and - sharp!).



How to do an interactive map? I use a software, which my son provided me (don't ask me from where, because I don't know), named Dreamweaver. It's for making internet pages. There I simply put the picture, it gives me the tool to mark areas which will be interactive, to name them (Alt=xxx) and to say to which web address the link must go. Then I simply copy-paste the code into SummitPost.



When you have time, we can together do the Velebit interactive map. Just say when you're ready! A little mailing back and forth and it's done.



Zivijo!

Thanks Vid for the lengthy reply about the process. I have Dreamweaver but never learne how to use it and make web pages. I would love to do such maps for Velebit. Yes, when I have time you can help me to do it, thanks for the offer!



I will certainly let you know when that article comes out. In this months issue there is bonus CD 'Zvuci Velebita'. It is present for one year of CRO NG. Music is composed by some guy Matej Mestrovic (didn't know till now). They merged his music with the sounds from Velebit that Stipe Bozic recorded (birds, flies, bees, rain, storms, wind and so on). All in all sounds good. Cover of the CD is my photo of Velebit :-)



Zivijo!

This is really an awesome page, that must have taken you some time. One question: where do you get those interactive maps ?

Sebastjan, I must be crazy - but I am drawing them myself :-)



I take the original map, go to Powerpoint and draw OVER it ridges, summits, paths, put text etc. And then delete the original map. It's also fun, when doing a map, you're more attentive to details, configuration of the mountain etc.



Thanks for your vote!

Important page for the grouping structure of the Julian Alps! I can see you decided on bold dark green captions ;-) To keep you busy: The links to weather, official sites and so on are not bold. Intentionally ?!?



Hehe!

Hm? Thanks! It's unproportional, because Sasa's Triglav (summit) page is so complete and actually describing also the broader area, that I didn't know what to write here. The least I would like is, that people would visit this page instead of his. But the concept of subgroups was accepted and also this one had to be done. So, let it be like it is, for some time.
