The Lamar Buffalo Ranch is part of Yellowstone National Park. The goal of the Lamar Energy Project (as I was involved with it) was to explain and showcase the ranch's sustainability efforts in the form of an energy dashboard with live data that visitors could explore and interact with.
This is an old project that I worked on for 8 weeks during the summer of 2016, through a PEI (Princeton Environmental Institute) internship. I spent 8 weeks in Bozeman, working with a team of Montana State University students and Yellowstone Park employees. I was brought on to really focus on the design/UI. It was important to have a website that was engaging to a variety of audiences, from children to energy experts.
The charts get their data from a Heroku database. A script on a computer at the ranch gets the values from the IoT network of energy sensors and updates the database every fifteen minutes. The website itself is hosted on Montana State University's content management system.
I made the interactive map as an SVG file in Illustrator, and the System Overview is a GIF I made in Photoshop. All the photos were taken by us during visits to the ranch.
