Page History:
January 2010Original version with 4 camera views, designed based on the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage, with cameras from the Oregon Mountain WebCams webpage
Includes the option to show the last 24 hours of data from SNOTEL sites near Crater Lake and the Crater Lake Rim telemetry site below the webcams
Includes code to error-check for missing SNOTEL data; later added code to error-check for missing Mesowest telemetry data (Crater Lake Rim)
February 2010Expanded to 5 camera views, adding new camera at Annie Springs entrance station
March 2010Fixed broken links to SNOTEL website
April 2010Fixed one camera link which had changed
May 2010Fixed unwanted line breaks in SNOTEL telemetry dates on narrow screens
October 2010Expanded to 6 camera views, adding new ODOT camera on US 97 at Sand Creek, and rearranged images into 2 rows
November 2010Expanded to 8 camera views, adding 2 new Crater Lake National Park webcams
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
February 2011Updated parser for Mesowest telemetry data (Crater Lake Rim), source file had changed
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
Fixed the parser for Mesowest telemetry data (Crater Lake Rim) to work properly when data is missing for the last 24 hours
November 2011Replaced one ODOT camera view with a new camera closer to Crater Lake
February 2012Updated the URLs from which to download the SNOTEL data, which had recently been changed slightly
November 2012Updated ID code for the Crater Lake Rim telemetry, and added the Crater Lake Lagoon telemetry site (near park headquarters)
December 2012Added more code to properly handle the new HTTP Status 404 errors from the SNOTEL server, and other unknown SNOTEL errors
January 2013Expanded to 10 camera views, adding 2 new ODOT cams at Diamond Lake, and rearranged 1 image
Revised the page layout to use separate tables for each row, to better accommodate the very different widths of images
Added location info for the Crater Lake Rim and Crater Lake Lagoon telemetry sites
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
Added the nearby Sevenmile Marsh SNOTEL site
June 2013Updated URLs for both Crater Lake Lodges webcams, which had recently changed
February 2014Fixed one camera link which had changed
April 2014Fixed one camera link which had changed
December 2014Added the Crater Lake Buoy telemetry site, fixed link URLs within the Mesowest telemetry data, and also added the Taylor Butte, Silver Creek, Crazyman Flat, and Summer Rim SNOTEL sites located near Yamsay Mountain east of Crater Lake
September 2015Expanded to 11 camera views, adding 1 new ODOT cam at Union Creek
January 2016 Expanded to 13 camera views, adding 2 ODOT cams on US 97 which used to be on the Mount McLoughlin WebCams page
Reduced image sizes from 480-360-240 to 400-300-200 pixels high for large-medium-small options
Improved the location info for several of the SNOTEL sites
Wrote a new external script to grab data from MesoWest (such as the data from Crater Lake National Park and RAWS telemetry sites), which downloads the data as a CSV file and formats it to match the style of the SNOTEL data
This fixes several major annoyances with the previous data format copied directly from MesoWest, particularly the large amount of wasted space including an ungainly header table, unwanted derived data columns (like wet bulb temperature and multiple pressure values), and especially the reverse chronological order, in contrast to the SNOTEL's normal order    
Added 5 nearby RAWS hourly telemetry sites to the west and east of Crater Lake which have precip, wind, solar, and other sensors (but not snowdepth)
February 2016 Major internal PHP code cleanup, updating and/or deleting legacy code left over from very long ago, from the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage (March 2009) on which all of these "Webcams + Telemetry Pages" are based, and even from the original Washington Mountain WebCams webpage (December 2004) on which the Rainier page was based
Added the Toketee Airstrip SNOTEL and Toketee RAWS telemetry sites which were removed from the Diamond Peak / Willamette Pass WebCams page, and also added the Buckeye and Summer Lake RAWS sites located to the west and far to the east of Crater Lake
Reorganized the (few) webcam images and (many) telemetry sites into more logical geographic order, and added descriptive dividers between major subregions of the telemetry sites, to clarify the layout
