List Description

This list is largely based on the work of John Biggar (http://www.andes.org.uk), who is the world's leading authority on the true elevations of the peaks of the Andes. Given the lack of good large-scale maps in much of South America, he has done an excellent job of compiling information from diverse sources. The cut-off prominence of 400m for this list is the same he uses.

This table here is based on his work, with the addition of independent research on peak latitude-longitudes, range classifications, prominences, and some elevations.
