Geyser Times Bootstrap Release

Our “Bootstrap” update has finally arrived.  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)***IMPORTANT***
    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.
