A Note on Contributions:

The data shown below is marked as being obtained from one of two means.

If it is indicated as “measured”, it means that someone actually took these

readings with a GPS receiver. The accuracy of such readings is usually very

high, within 15 feet or 5 meters in most cases. If the source is indicated as

“contributed”, the data has been obtained by other means, such as Survey

Maps, satellite imagery, or other indirect means. Such data is only as

accurate as the resolution of the map and the accuracy with which the data

was extracted.

If you have data to add to this document, please send it by e-mail to

DrChengalva@hotmail.com. The first contributor will be acknowledged

here. If you have actually measured GPS data for any of the Sahyadri peaks

listed below, then it will replace any contributed data shown here.
