The dangers of car accidents within the US are one of the leading causes of deaths for teenagers. Thus, we wanted to build a comprehensive web-application to help municipalities and communities address this growing problem.
What it does
The web-application highlights roads/streets based on how dangerous they are according to our extensive database and calculations.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Figuring out how to successfully use the Google Cloud platform to implement our database was a challenge. Another challenge was figuring out how to implement the zip code to GeoJSON conversion.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Applying huge datasets to a very important issue
Being able to correlate different line colors with the danger scores we derived with the data.
What we learned
Django and React development
HTTP request functionality
We learned how to use the MapBox API in conjunction with our web-application.
We also learned how to screen record.
What's next for BumpMap
BumpMap will soon be expanding the map beyond a few zip codes. Without being limited by the number of additions to the map in the free tier in MapBox's Studio service, with more capital we can easily encompass the entire map.
