Feature Request: Add estimated slope angle and estimated aspect to the information included in the upper right of the app's map screen.

To make room for this information, maybe display location in only 1 format (ex. decimal lat long or UTM, but not both).

Maybe allow people to specify what information is included in the upper right of the app's map screen.

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will forward this along to our development team for consideration. My gut feeling is that we won't be providing an exact slope angle for specific locations as these types of measurements have potential inaccuracies. While the LIDAR data is very high resolution, it should still not be relied on as a definitive source of truth. Beyond possible errors or accuracy issues with the dataset or our processing of it, the surface angle on top of a snowpack may not match the bare-ground angle underneath. Carefully assess and evaluate any terrain that you are traveling in, and confirm your observations instead of relying solely on maps.

    All the best,
    Rom
