Glacier Route Planning Tool?

Postby mattB » Mon Apr 09, 2018 12:23 pm

I'm just curious which version of the RoutePlanner people prefer?
The pale green one?
Or the pale yellow one?

I originally thought the green one would be a cleanup of the yellow one, remove some clutter and make it a bit easier to read, but I'm not sure if its any better...

Let me know what you think.

Matt, I haven't seen the green version, I bookmarked the link from one of the earlier threads (which takes me to the yellow version) as I was reading, so I can't make a comment about that. Just want to say the RoutePlanner is AWESOME and I really appreciate you making that available. It was very helpful to me as a (soon to be) first time Glacier visitor in planning out my routes for my permit submission. Thanks again.

Here's a couple links to the Green and Yellow versions.
I'm working on updating the Green version, so that it only has one line per day, more like the Yellow version, but with a little less clutter.

Green http://mattb.nationalparkschat.com

Yellow http://www.mattb.nationalparkschat.com/glacierRoutePlanner.htm

I also found a bug in the tool.. IF Adair camp (between Logging Lake and Grace Lake) is on your itinerary the tool doesn't work. There is a problem because the list of camps is alphabetical and since Adair is the first entry in the list, when the tool is searching for the "next" camps it finds Adair but gives it the wrong number, so the information is not displayed correctly..

I think the Yellow is super clean. All on 1 visual page.

Either way. Such a fantastic tool

This is pretty neat. I like the yellow, no scrolling needed.
