Beta

From Ropewiki.com
Jump to: navigation, search

Beta is simply information, usually regarding the nature of a trip or route and the challenges one might encounter. The word beta sprang from the climbing community and could have originally meant a Betamax video. Essentially the video of someone climbing a pitch.

These days beta typically takes the written form, but you can find excellent route information on YouTube.

Canyon mapper

RopeWiki hosts a tool that allows the user to plot the elevation profile of a canyon simply by ctrl-clicking (⌘-clicking) on the top of that canyon. The accuracy depends on the character of the canyon and the quality of elevation data in the region. In the San Gabriels, this tool is extremely accurate -- accurate enough to distinguish most rappels and their heights in most canyons. For slot canyons in remote areas of Utah, it is worthless.

This tool works by measuring the 3D polygons automatically loaded onto the viewer's local machine when viewing a particular area with the Google Earth plugin. This means that getting the best results requires:

  • Waiting for the Google Earth data to fully load before measuring an elevation profile
  • Ensuring that the entire canyon is visible on the screen (off-screen areas are replaced with much lower-resolution polygons and will not yield good elevation profile results)
  • Zooming in as much as possible (when zoomed out away from a given area, Google Earth loads lower-resolution polygons because the higher-resolution ones are unnecessary to create a good visual image)

NOTE: Google Earth API has been discontinued, so this tool may or may not work depending on what version of Google Earth you have installed. The Canyon Mapper module included in Ropewiki Explorer provides similar functionality but does not use the obsoleted API.
