How was DROPLET developed?

DROPLET has been developed in-house by the Environmental Protection Agency. While the exact IT specifications will not be of interest to most users we feel that it is useful to provide some details. DROPLET has been developed using PHP and uses an SQLITE database as the back-end database application. The web-interface has been developed to be responsive across all devices and screen-sizes. Twitter Bootstrap has been used as the front-end framework. JQuery is used to provide some additional Javascript functionality. Finally, Leaflet is used to provide simple, yet powerful, open source mapping web-based functionality.
