Printable Peak Views

The view from here feature has been around for a while, but you've never been able to print the results and take them into the field, except perhaps for making a screenshot.  I'm happy to announce that has now changed.

There's now a print link to the right of the share link:

Instead of launching a separate print page the way that the map viewer does, this simply brings up a couple print options at the top of the left bar.  You can choose page size, whether to show labels, and whether to show a custom selection or a 360 degree view.  A red draggable rectangle appears for the custom selection option.

The generated PDF has as many peak labels as possible, in diagonal orientation:

The 360 degree view has 3 rows, each covering 120 degrees.  Although they're not yet labeled, the first row covers NW-NE, the second row covers NE-S and the third row covers S-NW.

There are a few finishing touches that need to get added, like marking compass directions, but I don't want to wait for those to get finished up before announcing it.
