Sortable Comparison Chart of the Cascade Volcanoes       (page created December 2003)




This table compares many of the significant characteristics of the Cascade volcanoes included in this guidebook. The various fields are extracted directly from
the MySQL database which now forms the back-end for this section, and this page was written as a demonstration as I learned to program MySQL and PHP.
Click the [ up | down] buttons in each column to sort in ascending / descending order, or click here to return to the standard order or reverse order.
(Note that sorting the Timberline or Skiable Vertical columns does not yet work as intended, they are sorted alphabetically instead of numerically.)
