Job Description

I am looking to hire an expert web developer who can develop a Drupal based data driven website. The ideal candidate should have an in-depth knowledge of Drupal, data mining and should also be able to design an ideal database structure from both a search engine and usability point of view. This project involves collecting large amounts of data from a few goverment websites and displaying mashups as required. More details are given below:

US Colleges and Universities - web development, data mining and database creation project

Mission:

To create a website featuring all public and private colleges and universities in the U.S. with comprehensive and detailed information on each institution based on publicly available information based on government data.

Primary Sources:

http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/datacenter/Default.aspx

http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/

Data Points:

To see an example of the data points to be collected for each institution, visit this page and click on ‘Expand All’:

http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/?id=196060

Volume:

There are a total of over 7,600 institutions listed in the NCES database. When collated with programs offered by these institutions and then by state, by city there will be millions of combinations of this data, and will end up at over a million pages of data.

Data Collation and Mashup

The above data needs to be collated in such a manner that there are cross references in all possible manners. for example, if a user wants to search for 'Liberal Arts Colleges in New York City' they should be able to get exact macth results based on their input. The data structure should be something like:

Home>State>City>Subject>Subject2>Colleges>College Profile Page

Colleges in {State}
State>City>Subject>Subject2>Colleges>College Profile Page

Colleges in {City}
City>Subject>Subject2>Colleges>College Profile Page

{Subject} Colleges
Subject>Subject2>City>Colleges>College Profile Page

{Subject} Colleges in {City}
Subject>Subject2>City>Colleges>College Profile Page

I will explain the project in further detail on phone/skype to qualified bidders.
