Emergency response times are high in suburbs compared to urban settings and we hope to tackle this inequality by providing the knowledge necessary to demand social change.

What it does

We created an interactive map highlighting underserves location in Tompkins County using a binary coding system. Ability to input address and see where it falls in terms of coverage.

How we built it

Using road data, inputting speed limit variables and determining distance to calculate the time it would take for emergency response member such as police or firefighters to arrive to a given location from the station.

Challenges we ran into

The final file caused issues with the size and constantly caused our laptops to crash.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We completed a final map!

What we learned

One thing we have to take into account is bordering counties.

What's next for Code 911

Applying methods to other counties!
