A data visualization app which depicts the declining extent of the North polar ice cap melting over the past years. I built the app using React and integrated New Relic APM tool to study and observe user time on the site, page views, page load times, track the app performance and other analytics. I've deployed the app in AWS Amplify.
New Year, New Resources
The app will have projections of the polar ice cap extent from year 1979 in two different charts which helps visualize the drastic change.

(Why this particular app? Share some more background about how you envision this app helping the fight against the effects of climate change.)
This app gives details about what Polar ice cap melting is and what damage it had caused, will cause in future to world and also depicts the extent in two types of charts which will provoke a thought to people at what stage we are in currently.
Melting of ice caps means much more than rise in sea levels. It will also lead to a change in ocean water currents and global weather conditions. Without effective programs in place to reduce pollution, regulate greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, the environment will have major impact.
Hope this app will help people to understand one of the world's serious environmental problem and contribute towards the change.
