The Geo-Institute (G-I) is a membership organization focused on geoprofessionals and the geo-industry. It was created by the American Society of Civil Engineers in October 1996 as one of ASCE’s specialty Institutes. It is led by a Board of Governors guided by its Long-Term Strategic Plan, and thrives on the support of numerous member volunteers at the technical and administrative levels.
The G-I membership consists of more than 11,500+ individual members and 65 organizational members, including
organizations who share a mutual interest in protecting the public by enhancing understanding of—and expertise in—the engineering behavior of earth materials.
The project involved the following components:
- Migration of G-I website from open source WordPress CMS to Drupal 8 CMS, a very popular open source, high performance and secure PHP CMS, which will allow G-I to support current and future initiatives;
- Unified content structure from multiple subdomain structure to a single domain structure providing a better user experience and navigation flow;
- Improved design architecture to support future initiatives of additional G-I website operations;
