I love the new GVP site look BUT…..

First off credit where credit is due, the new GVP web site looks very nice in my opinion.

In particular I love the update to the SI/USGS weekly reports page which is so much better looking now than the original.

And this is the latest offering

All new web sites have teething problems, and GVP certainly a few at present. The 2012/2013 data is still not updated and there are one or two other problems with data, in particular in relation to the xls file downloads offered but I am sure they are working on it and all will be well in the end.

The search for a volcano by name just brings up a list of all the names now, but does not have the synonyms that it used to have (maybe I missed it). Not convinced that this is an improvement but the region search is quite good in that you pick your region and then get a map with the volcanoes plotted.

The look is great, the technicalities of the data still need some work but overall a great job.
