LocalitiesWildenkaralm (Brosingalm), Bramberg am Wildkogel, Zell am See District, Salzburg, Austria

According to Strasser (1989) this is (or should be) the same locality like Brosing Alp (Wildenkar Alp). https://www.mindat.org/loc-56827.html
The digital maps of Austria do not distinguish between a Brosing High Alp and a Brosing Alp. There is only a Wildenkar Alp listed.

I propose to merge this localities.

Hello Martin,
why do you translate the term "Hochalm" into High Alp? In my opinion the term cannot be translated, and "High Alp" is in my eyes wrong.

Hello Volkmar!

This translated term was added 2004 by Peter Haas. At this time there was some inconsitece in adding/translating names. I think there are some other examples in Austrian localities whch have such translated names. I would also say we should use the original German terns.

Wildenkaralm oder auch Brosingalm

I can't find "brosingal*" or "brosing*" in either austrianmap or geoland.at.
So I will merge the two (keeping Brosingalm as an alternative name) and add comments.

Thanks Uwe!

Strasser (1989) says: "Brosingalm = Wildenkaralm". Maybe a term of locals. The maps of the Austrian land surveying office are showing only Wildenkaralm, so I think we are here on the right way.
