Dasra is India’s leading strategic philanthropy foundation. They work closely with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation(BMGF) and hold their annual Water Saftey Health(WSH) Partners Meet. They approached us with designs for an interactive dashboard that shows information about all the organizations under WSH in India and allows the participants to contact each other.

We created the multi touch application as a webpage since they wanted it integrated into their website later on. My part in the application development was creating an interactive 3D map of India using three.js to show the state-wise distribution of organizations. The map can be zoomed in or out, panned and tilted, similar to Google Maps. The selected state pops out and switches to the information page.

I also worked on the mail sending code for the participants to contact other organizations. A PHP mail scheduler puts all mails in queue so that in event of slow or no internet connection, mails are not missed and are sent on re-connection. It also logged the mails sent.
