Geofeedia is a location-first analytics provider. They serve data to global news organizations, public safety departments, and corporate marketing teams.
Silverleaf Geospatial built a custom application designed to allow Geofeedia clients to embed maps in their own websites. The platform has been promoted by Facebook, and used by Instagram, Mashable, and others to share social media about everything from the World Cup to Oktoberfest to natural disasters and marketing campaigns.
Building this application required strict server-side locking and caching methods to ensure that it could easily withstand very high, and sustained viewer traffic, while still checking for media updates. On the client-side this is a mobile-ready, responsive app, with rich multi-media content and over a dozen UI interaction points embedded in the map, images, videos, and text elements. We worked with Geofeedia, developing within their environment and to their specifications, integrating their API end points, Amazon servers, and in-house CDN. The app topped out at over 5000 hits per second on launch day.
