And thanks to some hard work by KeithW, the first few 1:25,000 maps on SABRE Maps now have their annotations giving revision code and date. Right now they're just the first few in Caithness, but I'm sure coverage will work its way from there, but it may take some time before full coverage is achieved - it's a lot of sheets!
Excellent news, thank you :)

Perhaps the Society should have the facility for the collection of donations from users who don't actually take part in its construction or maintenance. Thanks to all who do.
Our treasurer, nowster, gratefully accepts donations via PayPal and bank transfer. Anyone wanting to donate can send him a private message for details - I don’t think we advertise this very well though.

And since I wrote this, KeithW has been working incredibly hard at the annotations for the 1:25,000 map layer and I'm delighted to say that the entire layer is now completed, and every single map has an annotation giving the sheet number, revision and date.

Just to give people an understanding of the size of his undertaking, the average annotation file for a One Inch layer is around 20KB. The 1:25,000 file is 224KB, and contains 2027 lines, each corresponding to an individual map.

Thank you!

Thank you very much Keith - having been doing a lot of the annotations on some of the one inch layers recently, I also know how much work must have gone into that!

This is exactly the sort of small user experience improvement which SABRE Maps really benefits from. The more people lending a hand, the better the service. Thank you Keith for your work.

That's a lot of behind the scenes magic being done that we wouldn't normally realise unless it was brought to public attention. Great work.
