Hi Pitlamp,

a cue to plug the BCA's Cave Registry Data Archive again. See www.cave-registry.org.uk.

If you have survey data, a copy should be here.

I'm not sure it says it on the website but it can do the secrecy thing you mentioned. It can control who has access to what.

It is also simple. It side-steps the format and standards issue by accepting pretty much any kind of file that the surveyor thinks is of value.

You're absolutely right Cookie & Graham - and for a while I've been conscious of the need to find some time to get together the many miles of survey notes which are dotted about around this house. I've got several pressing things to attend to in the short to medium term but I promise it'll happen!

You're right as well TheBitterEnd - regarding all the work that's gone into creating a situation where we can enjoy using a forum like this - but I was of course referring to good reasons, not "politics"!
