Water levels layer

We've just enabled a new water levels layer for everyone (this was previously only available to supporters) which shows data from water level gauges, both for the Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Agency.

If you click on the menu icon top left and you will see a new option "Water levels on". Select that and blue markers will appear all over the map showing you where the gauges are. Click on one and a popup window will show you data from that station, as supplied by the appropriate Environment Agency.

The same menu option can be used to turn the layer off again when you're done with the layer.

If you have any feedback on this new layer then feel free to reply to this post.

We've also added a new menu option "Become a supporter" to make it easy for you to do so rather than waiting for the popup to come around on its own.

Supporters already have access to the latest enhancement "Uploading track1 will offer to update log book" - you can read more about that in this thread in the Supporters forum.

Unfortunately the water levels layer pages are currently broken for both England and Wales (but not Scotland). We hope to have Wales back online quickly but at first glance England may take a little longer.

Thanks to wintonian for the bug report.

Wales is now back with a graphical display. England is too although it's very basic however it does again include link to the correct page on the Environment Agency web site for more information.
