Hi Randy, Kevin and all,
I worked on this problem a while, as possibly one of the usually infallible
sources. I think it would be nice if someone could hack the British
Catalogue's software to allow a mass dump of meteorite names and lat/long
coordinates. This information could then be crossed with a GIS information
database of elevations. It might yield more information answering questions
we have not yet asked.
Good luck with your find Kevin. May you get an "est".
