DevSTAC projects ranges from small personal projects requested by WashU professors to multi-tier applications using cutting-edge technology.
Facilities Planning & Management hired DevSTAC to create a website to spotlight significant trees on WashU’s campus; aligning with WashU’s goal to become a Level 1 Arboretum.
The project included building a WordPress website, taking standard and 360 degree photography of the trees, and designing signs with QR codes that were mounted on the trees themselves. When scanned, the QR codes present the user with detailed information about the tree.
The project will continue as we add more trees being to the site and add photos of existing trees at various times through the year.
