23. Melbourne, Australia.

Big mountains, small mountains. But mostly small mountains...

Generally speaking, information on mountain elevations and prominences around the world is of poor quality or yet to be compiled, so I aim to make some difference in this respect. I am chiefly involved in keeping the information on Australian and NZ mountains up-to-date, with a focus on applying digital elevation models and GIS to the task.

The difficulties in ascertaining correct elevation and prominence values for peaks are multitudinous. I try to overcome these, but realistically it is not always possible. A brief list of complicating factors might include:
- Unreliable or outdated surveying
- Lack of surveying
- Surveyed elevations pertaining to artificial structures
- Lack of verifiable sources
- Multiple conflicting sources
- GPS reliability
- Unavailable spatial data
- Distinction between DSMs and DTMs
- Poor DEM resolution and/or accuracy
- Disagreement on conventions relating to what constitutes a "summit"
- Artificial modification of terrain
- Variation between geodetic datums
- Natural terrain modification: erosion, tectonic activity, volcanic activity, glaciation, snowfall
- Climate change: rise in sea level, melting of permanent snow and ice
