Interresting that they say that it allows you to create "topos" but the examples don't actually contain any topo (contour lines, etc.) and it doesn't appear to have any capability for actually creating any. In other words, it's really just a sketching program. But, what the hell, it's free!

You are talking about topography, this is for rock climbing "topos" they are two different things...


Now where do you think "topo" comes from? Actually they are more like diagrams.

Awesome! Great Job! Would it be possible to get some alpine features added to the list? ie snow and ice, technical ice and mixed terrain, snow or icy ridge and maybe a summit flag? Looks awesome thought!
