As many of you have noticed, GeyserTimes.org recently underwent a facelift. Along with the new look, several other oft-requested features were added. Here are the highlights:
* Note structure changed to be based on datetimes rather than just a date, can be observations at a point in time or over a range of times
* Notes are now easier to find--they are displayed in logbook view and on the geyser page
* New search bar for geysers and historical dates makes it easier to find what you're looking for
* Home page logbook view now automatically refreshes
* Data logger temperature charting and archived temperature files for download
* Added a site tour for new visitors
* Ugly old prediction display replaced by pretty Gantt chart format
* Entering mulitple day's worth of eruptions is now easier: the multi-entry page has been revamped to handle multiple dates
* Ability to store eruptions to the accuracy of seconds (rather than to the minute) (multi-entry only)
If you have the GT Android App, it must be updated to version 2.0.0 . The old version will cease to receive any new data or submit data.
In addition, for you researcher and programmer-types, V3 of the GT API has been made public. This allows programmatic access to the eruption and notes database. I will be improving the documentation and sending out more information over the winter.
We're still working out a few kinks. Thank you to all who have submitted bug reports thus far.
Big thanks also to Will Boekel for all of his work in making this update possible.
