Credits: The UAF Dynamic Student Factbook was completely developed by UAF students! Craig Stephenson and Alex Wolfe initiated the project as a part of their CS Senior Design course. Craig and Alex designed the engine that makes the Factbook dynamic. Yingte Zhang assembled the pieces made by Craig and Alex, placed the Factbook on a server, and made it run. Finally, Kris Harper did the final leg work of customizing the front-end, validating the data, and making the Factbook user-friendly. Kris also expanded functionality by adding the Enrollment and Applications pages, writing the entire trend data section of the Factbook and creating and developing the GraphBook project.
The UAF Dynamic Financial/Research Expenditures Factbook was developed by Ben Barton and Heike Merkel.
