We were inspired by Organising for change!
What it does
Canistory is a website which highlights the importance of indigenous history. It has a built in, interactive map of Canada and users are able to learn about different Indigenous territories through brief but insightful summaries.
How we built it
This project was built using HTML, CSS, JS, Python and Firebase as the database, for collecting information from the users.
Challenges we ran into
Collecting accurate data for the locations was difficult. We also found it difficult marking specific types of data with the exact locations.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud that we were able to integrate the map with our data and frontend, as well as making an api for managing the data.
What we learned
Along the way, we learnt about Indigenous Canadian history as well as how to manage your time in order to create a project in a small amount of time.
What's next for Canistory
Adding more accurate data and a more interactive way of conveying the information!
