Tell better stories with your data

Tolaboard - Intuitive Dashboarding

In the Spring of 2016, I had an opportunity to work for Mercy Corps, a global humantitarian organization. I was part of a team building an open source software suite called Tola Data which was used to collect and analyze data from various humanitarian projects. I was responsible for building an intutive dashboarding tool for visualizing data from data collection part of the suite. The video below is a demo of what I built.

The application was built using the Ember.js front-end framework in combination with Ember Data. The graphs were built using Chart.js. The source code can be found here.
