Select either imperial (miles, feet) or metric (km, meters) for the units
appearing in peak label distances and heights.
Display peak information
In addition to peak labels, you can display the peak height and/or distance from
the camera position by checking the corresponding checkbox.
Selecting this setting brings up a screen where you can control the following:
Enter a number for the text size.
Choose Horizontal (default) or 45
degrees. The horizontal setting allows
more labels to be shown; however, the
screen may become cluttered with this
setting. Since the labels for closely
spaced peaks in the view may be very close
to each other, PeakIdentify allows you to choose
different colors for the background and
marker for each peak to help in
identifying which label belongs to which
peak (see below).
With the 45 degrees setting, the labeling
starts with the highest peak and ends
with the lowest peak. If a label does
not fit next to an existing label, it
will be skipped. You can filter which
peaks get labeled by filtering on a
height or distance range, as described
If this item is checked, then the defaults that came with PeakIdentify will be used, regardless
of the values entered in this settings. If you want to use different values, this box should
Draw box around label
Checking this item will draw a box around the label, using the same color as the text.
The default setting is off.
The marker is the line that is drawn from peak do its label. Its color can be selected
as (1) Same as background (the default), or (2) Same as text.
Tap the box to choose the color and transparency of the peak label text.
Use color 1 for all labels
Check this box if you want all label backgrounds and markers to have the same color.
The color applied is that of the first color in the list that follows. The default is to have
different colors for the labels. When choosing different colors (the default), the color used
for the labels cycles among the following colors. When the label direction is horizontal, several
labels may be close to each other; using different colors may help in distinguishing which peak has
Background color 1...6
Tap the box to choose the color and transparency of the background color for each label.
Check the box to display 3D terrain in view.
Tap to set terrain color and transparency.
Check box if you want to restrict download of Digital Elevation Map (DEM) files
to when there is an enabled Wifi connection.
If downloading is enabled, PeakIdentify will download
DEM files for a region of approximately 200 km x 200 km around the current position. If the device changes
position, or if you load a photo taken at a different position, the DEM files for
that region will be downloaded too. You can use this setting to restrict the total amount of space on the
SD card that DEM files occupy. Files for a new location will replace files for the farthest location
from the current one when the required space exceeds the current setting.
Camera Height Adjustment
The 3D terrain shown by PeakIdentify is that viewable from the current
location. If you wish to get a better overview of the 3D terrain surrounding your current location you
can add a height adjustment to the height at your current location. Note that the maximum allowed height is
