UW Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability (ESS) operates within the F2 Administration/ Strategy Management department of UW Finance & Facilities.

The Sustainability Map Developer will work in partnership with the ESS Program Coordinator to develop an online interface for the UW Sustainability Map. The goal of this project is to improve and further develop our current Drupal/Google Sustainability Map into a visually attractive and user-­‐friendly online interface to display the information we have collected for a University of Washington Sustainability Map. The Sustainability Map Developer will gain experience in integrating CSS coding, with Drupal, and with Google Maps.

1. Establish a sustainability map that meets the following objectives:
a.) The map should be self-­‐sustaining, require minimal ongoing maintenance, and not require additional funding from the University b.) The program should be comprehensive in regards to multiple areas of sustainability practices c.) The program should retain the UW look and feel, while still resembling the ESS site d.) The program should be simple to use and update

2. Perform user testing on the map interface to improve the user experience.

3. Use multiple marketing methods to communicate the completion of the sustainability map to students and departments on campus.

4. Measurable metrics: number of visitors to the sustainability map, tracked by Google Analytics.
