I was brought on to lead front-end development for this project at the Sustainable Engineering Lab. The bulk of the work was completed within a couple months, and the project was successfully transferred to the Nigerian government in 2014.

The Explore page is a single page app that uses Underscore.js for templating and Backbone.js for routing.
