Name: Names are derived from the M711 maps. Names in quotes (") are derived from Økonomisk Kartverk (ØK)
Height: I have chosen to let ØK heights override M711 heights
Loc: UTM co-ordinates for the high point or the saddle defining the primary factor. These co-oordinates are approximate.
PF: The mountain's primary factor. Explained in detail here.
Parent: A higher mountain that defines the mountain's primary factor. Not valid when there are choices. Island high points never has a parent as the sea always will define the primary factor.
Map: The M711 map where the mountain's high point is located.
