Veranderingen voor v2013.1.32 - v2013.1.36

  • Fire, Other Minor bug fixes to recent enhancement for U.S. Locations: fixed the incorrect
  • date/time stamps indicating when the InciWeb report was last updated; other
  • minor formatting changes to the report as it appears in Earth Alerts
  • Earthquake All earthquake screens: small improvement to the "News" option, specifically with
  • Google News...now provides a more specific default search string based on the
  • currently-selected earthquake event; example: searches on the specific phrase
  • "MINDANAO PHILLIPINES EARTHQUAKE" instead of generic search "EARTHQUAKE"



Veranderingen voor v2013.1.22 - v2013.1.32

  • Fire, Other
  • Changes for U.S. Locations only: significant enhancement with how information is retrieved and processed from the InciWeb system; changes better differentiate between types of fires (wildfires, wildland fires, prescribed fires) and other types of incidents occasionally reported on Inciweb such as floods. This enhancement also includes a new user setting: "distance maximum"; find this new setting under Settings -> Retrieve -> Locations - United States -> Fire,
  • Other;the default value for distance maximum is 150 miles; this value is applied for each U.S. Location you have setup; the benefit of this enhancement is that the data retrieval process should be faster overall (the InciWeb site has always been notoriously SLOW!); the incident reports shown for each U.S Location are now more relevant since they are now based on latitude/longitude values -- this works similar to how earthquake events are tracked in Earth Alerts; the distance value is calculated between each U.S. Location and an active incident reported on InciWeb such as a wildfire
  • Fire
  • Changes for U.S. Overview and U.S. Locations: eliminated all UI references to "Wildland Fire" and replaced with simply "Fire"
