Hi. I know this has been asked before [1] but the issue was closed over a year ago and things have changed since [2], so checking with you for your current thinking on 3d rendering in Caltopo? Having Caltopo render 3d imagery would be so helpful because I use Google Earth to visualize routes, and going back and forth between route creation in Caltopo then to GE, trying to make changes in GE when I see something that doesn't look right (and then make sure it gets reflected back into Caltopo), trying to sync my GE places across computers, having a DIFFERENT set of places in Caltopo that's not synced with GE - all these problems would be solved if Caltopo rendered 3d imagery.

In any case, thanks for your work on Caltopo. I appreciate everything you all do to keep it running for us,

[2] Gaia is now rendering 3d, but we don't want to use Gaia!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thanks for the input; we do appreciate it. I hate to disappoint you, but we do not have plans to incorporate a 3D model into our product.
