RockTopo.org is an open-source climbing topo project.
Climbing Topos are available for download and personal topos can be published.

Our basic file format for topos is .svg - Scalable Vector Graphic - an open standard
developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. It is the perfect format
We prefer topos as .svg but we know that not everyone's topos are .svg files. Most topos
are hand drawn with pencil and paper. But don't worry, we take "hand made" topos as well
as digital ones. We hope the community helps to convert all hand drawn topos into .svg files
because this is the only effective way we can modify, redesign, or update climbing topos.
To do this, we can recommend an excellent Open-Source Vector Graphic Tool called
Inkscape™. We also provide some tutorials, as well as some example files and templates
which will make it very easy for you.
