The forums have seen a number of meteor crater collections but this is by far the best. Beginning in 2009 ekafeman compiled a very thorough annotated database of all positive, probable, suspected and rejected meteor craters. Every six months or so he has updated it. I'm hoping he will join us here and continue to update. Until that time I have created this thread so our members can benefit from it. Simon, if you do join us and wish to begin your own new thread here, I'll remove this copy. Because this thread may be removed in time, I am locking it. GEC members please check the attachment if you think you have a new possible crater and if it is not already covered here, post it on a new thread.
ekafeman's original post read as follows:
"I have compiled a comprehensive list of proven, suspected, and disproven impact craters for all possible impact sites. Several sources were consolidated (see credits), though at this stage my database remains incomplete. The list of impact craters is very close to complete, however, there is still some more to be done (eg fix some icons, check color-coding etc)
This version 0.1 of my database is very well organised, and even contains journal references for each location.
I hope everyone enjoys this as between learning to edit KML and figuring out how to export/import Excel data, this has taken me 25+ hours so far!
PS. anyone who has time to update or help out is most welcome to do so. contact details in title balloon of the layer."
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
