The Spokane Clean Air site is a big site with a lot of content. The focus of the redesign was to help users find their content more quickly and to reduce calls to the agency. We used our WordPress know-how to build out clean templates that allowed the site managers to build pages that were well-organized and easy to find.
This update also included a ground-up design of the Air Quality Index data from airnow.gov. The team at Rhizome wrote up a piece about designing that. We pulled the data in via the airnow.gov API’s. We used D3.js to build the charts and leaflet to build the maps.
