Change of Map Datums – The Switch to WGS 1984

It was inevitable. At some point I was going to have to change to the WGS 1984 map datum from the Indian 1954 (Thailand-Vietnam) datum that has been used by the Thailand Caves Database. This procress has now been started, but it will be a long job and for the next couple of years there will be a mix of datums used on this site.

A Review of the 2010-2011 Caving Season

The disappearance of Thailand under several metres of water in the annual floods marks the end of the 2010-2011 caving season. Overall it has been a fairly quiet season without any major caving expeditions. However, much useful work has been done including the first cave dives in central Thailand and the exploration of two major caves in Chiang Mai and Nakhon Si Thammarat.
