Inspiration

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

We used Python and Django for the back-end, along with Javascript and React for the front-end of our project. We used MapBox for the interactive map.

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.
