Developed with a team of other dedicated San Franciscans SMARTmuni uses a clean, location-aware interface to solve the complex data flow problems of running San Francisco’s transit system. It runs on top of the public NextBus database, accessing and compiling real time vehicle location data, connecting that information with trouble tickets. We’ve already had the opportunity to present the project to SFMTA Chief, Ed Reiskin, senior staff and operations managers, and at the 2011 Mayoral Candidate Debate.

- Story of Bottled Water
What started as a small project with our friend Anthony at ArgStudios turned into a number of microsites for The Story of Stuff. Annie Leonard’s video aims to radically alter consumer behavior and make us think of the impact that plastic bottled water has on our planet. The video was hugely successful and featured in The New York Times, The Huffington Post, USA Today and even on The Colbert Report! We built the website showcasing the video on a WordPress platform.

While working at GreenInfo Network we assisted with design and managed the development of the U.S. National Vegetation Classification website using WordPress. The site provides a comprehensive guide to inventorying natural and cultural plant communities throughout the U.S. The website houses the USNVC Hierarchy Explorer enabling users to browse the vegetation taxonomy and drill down on specific species. The site provides background context on the project and assists users in joining the conversation and community.
- CCKA: Areas of Special Biological Significance
While working at GreenInfo Network we developed a web map outlining Areas of Special Biological Significance for the California Coastkeeper Alliance. The multi-layered map shows Marine Protected Areas, state-wide Regional Water Board Boundaries, Critical Coastal Area Watersheds, and detail on the Areas of Special Biological Significance.

- California Parcel Fragmentation
While working at GreenInfo Network we developed the WordPress website and maps illustrating the parcel fragmentation of land ownership in California. As one of the first projects of its kind, the California Parcel Fragmentation website sought to help interested parties understand the change from a native landscape to the fragmented ownership of today and the challenges that fragmentation presents. The degree of fragmentation of the private, rural land parcels is a critical factor for the future of ranching and farming, habitat conservation, fire prevention, delivery of services, water quality and much more. Deep zoom technology was used to enable users access to detail not visible on a printed map.

- Winnipesaukee Gateway
While working at GreenInfo Network we assisted with the design, and led production, development, and content addition of this rich web 2.0 site to present the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Management Plan to the public.
