Have you ever been on top of a Colorado mountain and wondered what that other interesting looking mountain across the valley was called?
Now you can just point your phone at the mountain and see what it's called and how tall it is using the augmented reality display in the Colorado Peak ID app!
This app is designed to help you identify all of the 13ers and 14ers in Colorado. You can set the range (up to 50 miles) of peaks you'd like to see and also filter out peaks you're not interested in -- so if you're only interested in centennial thirteeners, you can deselect the fourteeners so that they won't clutter the display.
Like all augmented reality apps, this app is only as good as the compass and GPS on your phone, so please read the help instructions for calibrating this so that you can ensure that you get the best results possible. Some phones may not be able to place the identification marker exactly on the summit of the peak, but most phones should get close enough to be helpful.

Please read the instructions in the help file about calibrating your device before using this app.
