Project Overview

Wash U Doing is a novel interactive website bringing Washington University students and student groups together. On-campus WUSTL groups will have the opportunity to create events on Wash U Doing, which students can find by easy filtering through their event needs.


  • Kristine Ehlinger, Systems Engineering '20
  • Dylan Zubata, Systems Engineering, Economics and Strategy '20
  • TA: Natalie Ng


  • Display an annotated map (from arcGIS) that shows destinations on campus including all major buildings on campus
  • Display current events posted by WashU organizations
  • Access the complete website from our demo laptop
  • Allow visitors to filter events


  • Learn how to code using HTML
  • Figure out how to encode the arcGIS into the webpage
  • Learn how to create a live-feed network on our website
  • Complete annotations on WUSTL campus map
  • Making the website user-friendly
  • Learn how to implement an interactive calendar with events color-coded by filter


  • arcGIS Map = $0 (Provided by arcGIS)
  • Notepad = $0 (Previously installed in computer)
  • Amazon Web Services Account: $0
  • Domain Name and Route 53 server (1 year ownership of the domain and data storage) = $13.14

This charge is largely based on a year's access to AWS and specific tools we access including Route 53 and the Elastic Compute Cloud. The charge breakdown includes:

  Elastic Compute Cloud
      *$0.005 per Elastic IP address not attached to a running instance per hour (prorated): 125 hours costs $0.63
  Route 53
      *$0.40 per 1,000,000 queries for the first 1 Billion queries: 623 queries costs $0.01
      *$0.50 per Hosted Zone for the first 25 Hosted Zones: 1 Hosted Zone costs $0.50
      *Registration of "www.washudoing.com": $12


Project Budget will be updated at the end of the semester as we access more capabilities on AWS.
