Real-Time Data Analysis Made Accessible Through Online Calculator

Real-Time Data Analysis Made Accessible Through Online Calculator

A provincial agricultural services corporation approached Imaginet to update and enhance their online calculation tools that were utilized by various people in the agricultural industry. Their calculators were in Microsoft Excel and prone to user errors and instability. Imaginet built an online suite of user-friendly calculators, making them easily accessible on any device – including mobile. This stage of the project focused on the development of a fertilizer efficiency calculator for farmers to have optimum fertilizer usage at all times to maximize profits. 

The Imaginet Application Development team used Angular 12, TypeScript, and HTML5/CSS3 to build the application on the front end. On the back end, we used data stored on a server using C#, .NET Core, and SQL Server 2019. We added new features like speedometer indicators using GraphJS and new drawing code as a plugin. We also added graphs that can display partial datasets and custom fields to store auto-calculated values that can be replaced with user inputs. A new type of input field (created using Angular) ties together various events so real-time calculations can take place that can be used in other calculators, and users can replace the calculated value with their input if necessary. 

Additional formatting was added with HTML5/CSS3 to allow the client to print a formatted version of the summary/calculator outputs. There is also a section for analysis where the client can see a complete visualization to help them determine the best possible fertilizer application parameters. 

Our team tested the accuracy of the calculations using xUnit on the back end and Karma and Jasmine in a browser environment. 

The original tool evolved in parallel with our development, so there was no downtime for the client or the end users. The client can now access real-time data analysis on any device, saving many farmers time and money with faster calculations. 

Our team has been working hard to deliver exceptional results, and we are thrilled to share our success with you.
