Mountains With Ultra-Prominences

I love mountains.

So I wanted to create a visualization that showed the highest mountains in the world based on prominence (prominence is different then elevation).

I compiled a data set from information found on In 2004-2006, the authors of the Ultras Project on researched every summit on earth believed to have 1,500 meters (4,921') or more of prominence.  In total, they calculated 1,524 such peaks.

Here is a look at the world's 1,524 mountains with 1,500 meters (4,921') or more of prominence.
