Waterways Consulting, Inc. is one of the premier West Coast environmental engineering and restoration firms with projects spanning from Southern California to Washington State. They were looking to partner with a website design company that could help them showcase their core services as well as their 200+ completed (and in process) environmental restoration projects. Several Tree Top Web Design team members have experience with mapping and GIS so we were very excited to be selected as Waterway’s Santa Cruz web design partner.

With such a large number of successful projects to catalog and display it was very important to design an expandable and searchable structure for the project portfolio. Now the website manager only needs to add the featured project once (text with images), assign the geographic coordinates then “tag” the project with a location and project type. The website then automatically adds each project to a project base map (utilizing Google maps with clusters) then propagates the project across several search tools including a search by map, search by location, search by service type and a traditional text based search. The website and project catalog are both managed entirely by the Waterways staff with minimal effort.
