The software application walks a user through the process of selecting the best erosion protection product for their specific application and geography.

Project Overview

The app walks the user through a few simple input steps and then, in the background, performs sophisticated engineering calculations to point to the best product to use for the specific project while taking into account product performance and price. The cross platform mobile application automates the process of gathering rainfall data for a particular geography and also for determining slope gradients with the use of a cool interactive camera feature. This project was fun and challenging and was recently announced at The 2017 IECA Conference in Atlanta, GA . East Coast continues to stand out as an innovator and market leader in their industry.
