   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/01_basic_topo/|Basic Topo]] - this is close to the simplest version of a mapping app under Leaflet that's possible. It includes one layer, the LPI Current Topo layer, plus a pointer which displays co-ordinates. Not bad for mobile, since it's much lighter weight than subsequent versions, and only one layer. I made a change to the mouse co-ordinates code to allow a tap on the screen to cause the co-ordinates to change, as there's no mouse or "mouseover" on mobile!   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/01_basic_topo/|Basic Topo]] - this is close to the simplest version of a mapping app under Leaflet that's possible.

     * [[https://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/01a_location/|Location]] - as above, but includes a location function that uses the GPS, and also uses the mouse co-ordinates code from Map Lookup below to find a 6 figure grid reference and map rather than full UTM. Probably needs to be accessed via HTTPS due to Chrome moving to secure location data. Ideally there would be a way of caching the topo tiles for offline use.     * [[https://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/01a_location/|Location]] - as above, but includes a location function that uses the GPS, and also uses the mouse co-ordinates code from Map Lookup below to find a 6 figure grid reference and map rather than full UTM.

   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/02_opacity/|Two Layer with Opacity]] - a good all purpose map. Two layers (LPI Current Topo, LPI Imagery), with an opacity slider to move between them. Great for finding passes and canyons.   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/02_opacity/|Two Layer with Opacity]] - a good all purpose map.

 +    * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/02a_opacity_s1_s2/|Two Layer with Opacity (old/new series maps)]] - as above, but with the layers being the LPI Current Topo and the LPI Series 1 Topo. Good for comparing changes.
   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/03_file_load/|Load GPX/KML/GeoJSON Files]] - as above, but with the ability to drag and drop GPX/KML/GeoJSON files on to the map (or open), and have them displayed as tracks and markers. The map will automatically zoom to the extent of the file. Waypoint names appear in a popup if you click on the marker.   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/03_file_load/|Load GPX/KML/GeoJSON Files]] - as above, but with the ability to drag and drop GPX/KML/GeoJSON files on to the map (or open), and have them displayed as tracks and markers.

   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/04_data_creation/|Create/Edit data]] - similar to [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/02_opacity/|Two Layer with Opacity]], but with the ability to create, edit, delete and save markers, lines and polygons using Leaflet.Draw and a plugin I wrote (Leaflet.Save). This allows saving to KML, GPX and GeoJSON, depending on what has been enabled. Polygons display their area when created or edited.   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/04_data_creation/|Create/Edit data]] - similar to [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/02_opacity/|Two Layer with Opacity]], but with the ability to create, edit, delete and save markers, lines and polygons using Leaflet.Draw and a plugin I wrote (Leaflet.Save).

   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/06_permalink/|Permalink]] - as above, but with ability to save a link that can be shared. This includes the current zoom, map centre, and any objects that have been drawn on the map (but not including items loaded via the File Load above).   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/06_permalink/|Permalink]] - as above, but with ability to save a link that can be shared.

Also allows editing/saving of data loaded from GPX/KML/GeoJSON.   * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/07_label_edit|Label Edit]] - as above, but with ability to add/edit labels on features.

 +  * [[http://maps.ozultimate.com/archive/08_print|Print]] - basic topo map only, but enables a user selectable box to select a print area. When the save button is clicked, the tiles are downloaded and stitched together, and a PNG file exported. The resulting image usually needs some post-processing, as the contour lines print in a pale colour.
