Magna Systems

Magna (Latin for “monitoring”) Systems is a Google Maps API powered web mapping application for monitoring various plant species that are part of green roofs on the campuses of the University of Calgary, University of Western Ontario, and Dalhousie University. Currently, this web app is limited to University of Calgary due to data availability, but our vision is to expand this to other green roofs on research campuses across Canada.

It uses back-end technologies such as Java EE (Apache Tomcat) and PostgreSQL (PostGIS) to store the data. The front-end is powered by web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery UI to display the data in a user-friendly manner.

Sportsity is a web application designed to help the citizens of Calgary discover nearby courts of their favorite outdoor sports. Data that powers this application was provided through the City of Calgary Open Data Catalogue. While initially restricted to Calgary, the goal is to make this web application available across North America and the world in multiple cities with the help of free and open data.

Like Magna Systems, Sportsity uses Java EE (Apache Tomcat) and PostgreSQL (PostGIS) technologies for a fast and efficient back-end. The front-end is developed using the Google Maps API, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and jQuery UI.


Heat Energy Assessment Technologies

HEAT (Heat Energy Assessment Technologies) is a free GeoWeb service designed to help residents improve their home energy efficiency, save their money, and reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by finding their HEAT Score, Hot Spots and visualizing the amount and location of waste heat leaving their homes and communities, as easily as clicking on their house in Google Maps.

While being a researcher at University of Calgary, I have been working on this project as a full stack developer. The back-end is powered by the Python Flask framework while the front-end is developed using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery.
