July 2021 - Round 2
The database is updated and now stands at 1716 documented arches, with 1764 documented features (including false arches). The map is also updated to 532 arches. Bill Fultz worked endlessly on this update. Though it is only a handful of new arches, the database now has measurements, photos and other data for a slew of arches that it did not before. One of our main goals is not to only collect data on the location of the known arches of Kentucky, but to also collect dozens and dozens of data points for each arch. This makes the database stronger, more informed and extremely useful for hikers, explorers as well as scientists. Our goal is to make this database useful for many people across a range of spectrums. We hope you enjoy it, and find it useful. Please reach out if you have any questions, comments or additions to this database.
