Boston Harbor Islands

The Client

Boston Harbor Islands is Boston’s own national park. The islands are administered by the National Park Service, and are a popular tourist attraction in Boston.

The Project

To access these islands, visitors must take one of the ferries which run on a seasonal schedule. The ferry schedule was recently integrated into Google maps but is yet to be incorporated into their website. Boston Harbor Islands currently has charts on the website that simply list the times of each ferry. JumboCode is going to build an application that will present the ferry schedule in a clear and useful manner. It will track where each ferry is, when the next ferry will be and which island it is going to. It will also update the chart of times depending on the season. A variant of the application will also be deployed on kiosks around the islands.
