European river locations - GPS

Post by Peter O'S » Fri Apr 05, 2013 1:17 pm

To help people save fuel this summer driving around the Alps I thought I'd post my saved satnav locations. I am presuming other people have loads of places stored on their satnavs too.

45.608376 7.686081 798.01 Ayasse River Start
45.604808 7.688815 746.82 Ayssera End River
45.797195 8.032349 829.98 Campertogno Campsite
45.880903 8.067159 1071.75 Egua End
56.617949 -4.940068 118.85 Etive End
56.625547 -4.905202 182.78 Etive Start
45.767501 8.012154 987.39 Grande Start
45.884183 8.176845 920.1 Landvasse Drop
45.82058 8.25088 581.72 Mastellone End
45.85453 8.231896 594.22 Mastellone Start
44.83932 6.4851 -0.11 Onde Get In
56.448055 -4.851822 72.95 Orchy Get out
56.964649 -4.773839 -0.11 River Roy
45.860812 8.059969 1065.02 Sermeninza End
45.818782 8.13838 -0.11 Sermenza End
45.863149 8.029464 1089.53 Sermenza Start
45.838423 7.951213 1084.48 Sesia Balma Section
The points above are all places I've been to and saved while parked.

While looking into this before I came across a playak.com file, which had 1000s of river locations. Its a bit hard to work with so not sure how much benefit it is.
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ij9kssdss0y5 ... Playak.csv

I chopped that file down a bit to give me this https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ij9kssdss0y5 ... 0again.csv. Still lots of duplicates.

Anyone else have their satnavs points saved on computer? Better still anyone have a concise file of French and Italian alps river locations? Or even better still those locations sorted in a useful format, by grade etc?

The french website www.eauxvives.org has a comprehensive set of guides to all french whitewater rivers.(and many in italy,switzerland,spain too)
GPS coordinates are on most. easy enough to note the ones you want.
