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.
Sportsity is a web application designed to help the citizens of Calgary discover nearby courts of their favorite outdoor sports.
