The current COVID-19 situation and how it could have been handled better. Spreading information about dangers to the public as soon as possible.
What it does
Retrieves data about various viruses and disasters and gives information about the danger at one convenient website. Data is all from GitHub, and a Google Maps marker displays related statistics at that location. Currently, only SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV have logged data. Ebola and MERS also have tabs with information, but no data is shown yet.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Issues with parsing CSV data from GitHub repos to JSON. I found a library on the internet and that helped immensely.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Collecting a vast amount of useful data and displaying it in a more readable way.
What I learned
How to use Google Maps' API and parse CSV files to JSON.
What's next for Biohazard Tracker
Account registration to save health information, symptom questionnaires, more health risks (viruses, fires and natural disasters), real time data, charity links and medical resources.
