VESTRA developed the Putting Youth on the Map (PYOM) Data Analysis Viewer for the UC Davis Center for Regional Change (CRC).  The CRC wanted to visualize and analyze a number of well-being and vulnerability indices affecting California’s youth.  VESTRA used Esri’s ArcGIS API for JavaScript to build a mapping application that displayed up to three maps side-by-side that can be used to compare various indices.  Each map can display a different trend or index which when compared to indices in the other maps, provides an understanding of trends and patterns that can affect change in policy and decision making.  The extent and position of the three maps can be synchronized to assist in comparing the indices on an area by area basis.  Social media integration was added by allowing users to share a printed map or a URL that would launch the app with a specific area of interest being displayed.  In addition to application development, VESTRA provided CRC staff with support for the configuration and publishing of PYOM map services using ArcGIS for Server.  The PYOM application required specific functionality only available in ArcGIS for Server 10.3. VESTRA assisted CRC in upgrading from ArcGIS for Server 10.2 to ArcGIS for Server 10.3.1.

Most recently, VESTRA worked with UC Davis to develop, test, and implement functionality to accommodate use of the PYOM by mobile and tablet devices. The goal of the project was to provide a well-functioning user interface for the PYOM that scales appropriately from desktops down to mobile and tablet devices. The development process included porting the PYOM application into the Twitter Bootstrap framework, and making revisions to the PYOM application that enabled responsive behavior, allowing similar functionality between desktop, mobile or tablet device browsers.
