The US is riddled with gun violence. There are over 1,000 incidents per week. Half end in injury, a quarter end in death.
What it does
Web spider collects data on gun incidents, adds the data to MongoDB and Flask backend of an api hosted on Heroku, then a Unity VR project makes a call to the API to populate the visualization.
How we built it
web spider in python, api in python, flask, mongodb, heroku, unity VR project with cardboard sdk, all custom assets in Blender
What's next for Visualizing Gun Violence
More accurate assets that match the description, allowing the visualization to compound over time.
