Version 1.3.5

At some point in time I stopped adding the changes to this blog, but I'll try to start again.
Updating today:
- The pop-up boxes in the maps now show: reading time and comments. These will only show on Single Day reports though.
- Also fixed the report that shows in Google Earth
- Some time ago, we added the ability to report Preliminary totals. This feature had the main goal to provide those with electronic gauges with an option to report rain as it happened. These totals were by default being displayed on the map, but this was not reliable since many of these type of readings were never changed to Total type. So, as of this version these type of readings are not displayed on the map.

Version 1.3.4 has been released

A new version is out. The latest changes include:
- Google Earth view for any report
- A new option to Add Data with Preliminary totals, which will let users report rain events as they happen
- YTD chart with dual axis
- YTD chart is now also available on the "Data" tab
- Login page has now a Remember Login checkbox
- Map page single day reports auto-submits after selecting a date
- Also, the map page preserves last lat/long view, so if user changes dates the form automatically submits
- Users can now add pictures of rain events, this is available on the "Add Data >
Daily" form, and only after the record has been saved.

Version 1.3.3 Released!

Version 1.3.3 of the website has been released.
This version includes:
- Changes to the main page layout to improve visibility with larger fonts and to give uniformity to the form on the right side column
- Changed the name of the basin/watershed combo box to "predefined region". After selecting a new region the browser will automatically show the location in the map without the need to click the "Select" button.
- Added the "home" tab on the main menu
- Added the "Mid and Lower San Pedro" region in the newly named predefined region, combo box.

You have probably noticed that Google Maps changed the imagery for some zoom levels in the last week. They are saying that they improved the images, but my feeling is that it got worse for Arizona. I'll drop an item in their discussion group to see what were the reasons for this.

If you have comments don't hesitate to send them to us, by email or through this blog space.
