The Client

Live Ocean is a project headed by Oceanographic Field Services Pty. Ltd. (OFS) in conjunction with University of New South Wales (UNSW). OFS specialises in providing oceanographic services including leasing out oceanographic instruments and collection of data for scientific research or commercial purposes.

The Job

OFS approached Websites ‘N’ More to develop a custom web application that enabled them to talk to (adjust the settings of) instruments on the sea bed and allowed them to collect and present data in a particular format from these instruments in real-time.

This was quite a technically challenging project as the application in question was going to be an industry-first.

Some of the intricacies involved plotting the data on tables and charts correctly, being able to fetch data from the instruments at regular intervals and providing users with the right level of access to the system based on the login rights provided by the web administrator.

The Result

Working closely with the client for a period of 6 weeks we were able to complete the project. There were a number of changes made to the brief along the way given that this application was first of its kind and a lot of scenarios were not accounted for when the initial brief was provided.

The client was quite happy with the results achieved at the end of the project and continues to work with us to further refine the system.

Client’s Feedback

“Websites ‘N’ More provided excellent front and back end design and development on a technically challenging project. They provided clear and concise communication and delivered on time and to budget. They were a delight to work with. We will definitely them again to provide additional layers and site updates.”
