Hot Planet, Cool Site: Relaunching GlobalChange.gov
Get the inside story on the design and launch of GlobalChange.gov, the highest-profile Obama administration website of 2014. Built to present a unified compendium of federal climate change research drawn from 13 different agencies, the Drupal 7 site also houses the Third National Climate Assessment – the definitive report on how climate change is affecting the United States.
Hear more about how we navigated a complex federal authorizing environment, managed multiple contractors, and delivered a site that Philip Bump of The Atlantic called “one of the best designed, clearest articulations of climate change I've ever seen.” After a public launch event and media push by the White House, the site received over a quarter million visitors in the first 48 hours and was featured prominently in the national media.
This session will cover:
- How you can turn dense, scientific data into a beautiful, accessible site
- How you can successfully leverage Drupal in a rapid development cycle
- How you can wrangle a complex stakeholder environment into a successful project
