Inspiration

When ever we are taking a walk around the city, we always see litter piles, road kill, and broken infrastructure that goes unnoticed, and this can be harmful to residents.

What it does

CityFix is and app that allows residents of Toronto to report problems like litter, broken infrastructure, and roadkill in our communities. You take a picture and upload it to the map, and if people are in the area, they can help clean it up.

How we built it

We built this using Django and SQLite. We used the openstreetmap with leafletjs for the maps.

Challenges we ran into

We originally planned to use the mapbox api, but it was extremely slow and kept glitching, so we had to switch apis last minute.

What we learned

We learnt how to use map apis in js.

What's next for CityFix

We plan on adding a community clean up feature, where people can plan cleanups in the area. It will allow residents to get together and help improve the neighbourhood.
