Page History:
December 2009Original version with 4 camera views, designed based on the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage, with cameras from the Southwestern British Columbia Mountain WebCams and Washington Mountain WebCams webpages
Includes the option to show the last 24 hours of NWAC and SNOTEL telemetry data from Mount Baker below the webcams
Later added code to error-check for missing SNOTEL data
January 2010Added the distance of each camera from Mount Baker in the photo captions
March 2010Fixed broken links to SNOTEL website
May 2010Fixed unwanted line breaks in SNOTEL telemetry dates on narrow screens
June 2010Fixed one camera link which had changed
September 2010 Expanded to 5 camera views, adding the low-resolution version of Ferndale image, since the high-res version is very unreliable
November 2010 Fixed a minor bug in the SNOTEL data display, which only occurred between 11pm and midnight and showed the previous day's date for the 0000 hour's data row
March 2011 Fixed a minor quirk in the SNOTEL data display, which only occurred when SNOTEL data is not available at a given site for the previous 24 hours
February 2012Updated the URLs from which to download the SNOTEL data, which had recently been changed slightly
September 2012Added the newly-installed air quality webcam from Ferndale, which had been offline since March 2011 due to construction
October 2012Expanded to 7 camera views, adding the Mount Constitution and Bluenose webcams, and rearranged images into 2 rows
November 2012Updated the caption and elevation info for the Ferndale air quality webcam, which had been moved to a very different location
December 2012 Expanded to 8 camera views, adding the Anacortes Middle School webcam, and updated one WSDOT camera URL which had changed
Added more code to properly handle the new HTTP Status 404 errors from the SNOTEL server, and other unknown SNOTEL errors
January 2013 Expanded to 9 camera views, adding the new Skunk Bay Weather webcam 2 from Hansville
Revised the page layout to use separate tables for each row, to better accommodate the very different widths of images
March 2013 Forced to write a new external script to grab SNOTEL data, after the long-existing SNOTEL data programs on the NWCC website were suddenly redirected to a beta-version report generator
The new script is a major improvement, it displays wind and solar data for any SNOTEL sites which have those sensors, mostly installed within the last few years
November 2013Expanded to 10 camera views, adding the Saturna Island East Point webcam in BC
December 2013 Expanded to 18 camera views, adding 6 more WSDOT cams in Bellingham and 2 WSDOT cams in Sumas
Reduced image sizes from 480-360-240 to 400-300-200 pixels high for large-medium-small options
April 2014Fixed one camera link which had changed
August 2014Fixed one camera link which had changed
November 2014 Remained at 18 camera views and rearranged several images, adding a new view from Ferndale and removing the long-defunct Friday Harbor cam
December 2014 Expanded to 27 camera views in 4 rows, adding a new view of Baker from Coupeville, a panoramic cam in downtown Bellingham, and 7 WSDOT cams in Lynden, Sumas, and Bellingham
January 2015Fixed one camera link which had improved to a higher-resolution image
April 2015Fixed one camera link which had changed
September 2015 Fixed the Abbotsford Airport visibility image, which had gone offline last year and changed to a completely different website, moving from http://visibility.pyr.ec.gc.ca/ to http://www.clearairbc.ca/,
it took repeated efforts over many months to even find out where the visibility images had eventually moved to, and then required writing a new internal script in order to detect the well-hidden URL of the current image
December 2015 Remained at 27 camera views, adding the West Vancouver Nav Canada cam's east view (which was already on the Mount Garibaldi WebCams page) and removing the defunct New Westminster cam (the seafoam.net webcam site has been retired and gone offline permanently)
January 2016 Expanded to 31 camera views, adding views of Baker from Camano Island and Edmonds, a cam at Mt Baker Rim in Glacier, and another WSDOT cam in Bellingham, and also fixed one WSDOT camera link which had changed
Reduced image sizes slightly from 400-300-200 to 360-270-180 pixels high for large-medium-small options
Improved the script which grabs the latest Abbotsford Airport visibility image, to handle situations where the most recent image is over 24 hours old
Since there are only a few snow telemetry sites on and near Mount Baker, added 3 nearby RAWS hourly telemetry sites in the foothills which have precip, wind, solar, and other sensors (but not snowdepth)
Wrote a new external script to grab data from MesoWest (such as the data from the RAWS telemetry sites), which downloads the data as a CSV file and formats it to match the style of the SNOTEL data
Updated the external script which grabs NWAC data to generate an HTML table which matches the style of the SNOTEL and MesoWest data, so these WebCams pages can now show an arbitrary mix of NWAC, SNOTEL, and MesoWest telemetry sites in any order
