The existing static site was rebuilt yearly from a dataset, a time consuming process. We have delivered a dynamic site so that each year the data can be ingested in CSV format. The new system allows the client to edit the ingested data via a Content Management System. This CMS uses the latest Aerian Studios Framework. This represents a significant time saving for the client moving forwards.
They can also publish news articles to the site and publish anaysis and articles about the methodology behind the WUR for each year. There are institutions pages and enhanced institution pages which include youtube videos, RSS newsfeed, larger promotional images, social integration.
