Inspiration

I wanted to do a project using SQL, it was a system I wanted to learn. Talking with my family, I found that people were concerned about the poisonous Bufo Toads harming their pets. I got the idea to build a SQL database to help people keep track of last-known sightings of dangerous animals.

What it does

The application portion shows locations on the map of spottings of animals. The database portion stores these locations and accepts inputs of new spottings from the app.

How I built it

Android Studio, SQLite in DBeaver, blood, sweat, tears, and caffeine.

Challenges I ran into

App Development. The Google Maps API is weird and finnicky, along with all of Android development.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Everything. I learned a new database structure, practiced app development, even did a little bit of digital art :)

What I learned

SQLite, Google Maps API, more Java, more Android development.

What's next for AnimalTracks

Server-side Database connection, and sighting upload functionality.d
