A Mountain Is More Than Its Summit Elevation by Mark J. Stock
We humans are too easily fixated on extremes, we count and compare and put things in order. The pinnacles of land are mountains, and they are always ranked by the elevation of their summits above sea level. But a mountain is far more than a number. In this "vertical map", major and notable mountains of the World have been digitally uprooted and placed next to each other, each represented by a virtual rendering of its true form: in shape, detail, and color.
