The map illustrates the 50 most prominent peaks of the world. "Prominence" means the height relative to its surroundings. Numerically it is the height difference of the peak and the lowest contour line with no higher summit within it. The labels on the map show the prominence of each peak next to the name, and the actual height as well.
