Our First GeoNet Data Blog - Making the Most of Volcanic Alert Level Data

Welcome, haere mai to our first GeoNet Data Blog post! This is a new initiative with a focus on GeoNet data-related stories. In some blogs, we plan to talk about specific data sets, and in others more general data information. We’ll try not to make the blogs too technical, but we will sometimes include some computer code to help some readers work with the data sets.
