December Update Number OnePosted by bryanswan | December 21st, 2015
In a completely unexpected turn of events, we’re really bad at getting new data up on the website. Shocking, I know. Well, better late than never I suppose? Having become abundantly obvious to us a few weeks ago that it had been nearly a year since we’d posted any new data to the database, we decided it was time to re-evaluate our strategy and see if maybe we can do things in a slightly more efficient way. So, rather than waiting until we have fully proofed our internal data sets and ensured they are as complete as possible, we are going to try to post whatever we have ready to go as soon as it’s possible (within our not terribly flexible schedules at least).
That said, we’ve just posted data for several regions of North America: in the United States we’ve added nearly the complete data sets for Maine (238 entries) and Georgia (152 entries so far – more to be added later), as well as a smattering of additional falls in Minnesota, New Mexico, North and South Carolina, and Ohio. In Canada, we’ve added the very limited data sets we had for Yukon, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories, as well as the full data set for Saskatchewan (yes, there are in fact waterfalls in Saskatchewan), as well as a solitary entry in New Brunswick which shares the border with Maine.
We will probably try to get one more publish done before the end of the year, with possibly the rest of the Georgia and Maine data, as well as additions to Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, and more of the mountainous western states, and hopefully at least one full set for one of the remaining US States which hasn’t been published yet.
