As you can see, the IMO website got a serious facelift. The old design was around since the launch of the site in 1996 and was screaming for some attention.
It finally got this much-needed attention with a complete re-make of the site, now based on the open-source Content Management System Drupal and with a new, simple and clean design. While the old site already had a huge amount of information available it was often hard to find. We tried to move all this information into an easier structure so that everybody can find what he needs.
With the launch of the new website, there’s also some new stuff available. Some of the more important things:
- an electronic report form for your visual observations (summary reports)
- IMO Meteor Shower Calendar 2006
- A central place for all data archives. Note the updated VMDB archive.
- An electronic membership registration form and a new who-is-who page, which should be more up-to-date than the old one…
We’ve put a lot of effort in making this website better, now it’s your turn! Please let us know if you have any comments, questions or remarks. If anything seems broken or if you have ideas for improvements, definitely tell us.
