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
