The Project: BlinkTag Inc developed a website that features a map where a variety of layers can be displayed, including structures, environmental vulnerability, and population growth. These layers are served using Google Fusion Tables. Graphs and charts of each of the metrics are also provided. The site is completely bi-lingual, powered by WordPress allowing the team to easily manage both English and Portugese content.
