Distance Exploratory

is an experimental platform/app built to support the DISTANCE project. A project which aims to bring together a series of Internet connected objects to enhance the classroom experience.
The app provides current sensor readings and graphs historic data sets to enable schools and their environs to be understood better.

Further details:
