About the Client
Healthy Land and Water is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to improve the sustainable use of land and waterways in South-East Queensland. They work with government and private institutions to plan new water developments and offer guidance on how waterways are best managed for now and in the future.
Healthy Land and Water needed a way to simplify the process for data integration, cross checking and display for their yearly reports. These reports offered a wealth of detail about the health and viability of existing and proposed waterways and there was an obvious benefit to making this information easy to see online.
Such a system would need to integrate ArcGIS, their geographical mapping information system, which hosts historical data mapping from 2000 and also offer the ability to be automatically updated with ‘live’ data as it’s fed into the database.
Using the Node.js application platform, iFactory developed a report card dashboard. ArcGIS data was imported to the application with an API integration and then displayed on the site in real time. The new functionality was given a UX makeover and we also provide ongoing support and improvements to the system as time goes on.
