The Ocean Sensor Visualization Application displays near real time sea level and atmospheric data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors sprinkled through out the Georgia coast line. Click the button above to fly in and view the data.

Ongoing Notes :
The Ocean Sensor Visualization Project draws data from sixty-two (62) enclosures currently (January 2024) located through out Chatham County, Georgia, other counties and states are involved as well. Each enclosure can house from one to six sensors, from my understanding the main goal is to monitor sea level modulations over a series of time so that county officials can make better decisions in the future, many of these enclosures have expanded to include air pressure, air temperature, relative humidity, rain gauge and battery voltage sensors. Please see video below for more information on enclosure construction and operation.
The enclosures are scattered through out the county. There is a mixture of public land and private water access that the enclosures are mounted on. Some of the locations have photographs, pictures will auto-populate when the modal is loaded. This application retrieves data from an API that the Smart Sea Level Sensors Project team has built to allow for software developers as myself to query data. The application then parses and displays the data in chart and latest observation tab. Due to browser and bandwidth limitations, the maximum days of history allowed through this application is 30 days. Mapping controls are typical of most mapping services coupled with push on/push off layer control.
All of this development occurred within a Pycharm IDE and JSFiddle on a Linux machine. The Django MVT framework is hosted on a Linux server with Gunicorn for communicating Python duties and Nginx functioning as the webserver.
I would like to give a special thanks to all of the people and organizations that have built and contributed to this project.
