Mapping the Ecological Benefits at World Garden Commons
Interactive Multimedia students Tyler Fischbach, Jennifer Natole,Thomas Garzon, Sean Walsh from Minnesota State University Moorhead spent a semester in studio dreaming, designing and developing an interactive tool for The Fargo Project website. The challenge: create an interactive, animated graphic to show a map of World Garden Commons as s wet and dry basin with ideal prairie grasses and plants. Their resulting graphic maps the basin as it fills, highlights ecological ares and describes the environmental advantages wet and dry species of plants provide.
View the student’s work at http://www.thefargoproject.com/site-conditions/. Use the sun-rain slider to see how the basin fills from the two inlets, hover over the World Garden Commons Listening Garden, Overlook and Amphitheater for a select view, and select the Ecological Areas to read more about the plant species and conditions of the areas highlighted.
