We are inspired by the healthcare workers who work days and nights fighting against COVID19. We believe our skills and knowledge in computer can also help the community fight against the virus by providing more accurate, accessible information and analysis.

What it does

This web application shows a map with the number of COVID19 patients in each town. Users can see more information and stats by hovering on and clicking desired towns.

How I built it

We used Python flask, anaconda, html, css, and javascript. We also used several rest API's from various sources. It is also available in docker.

Challenges I ran into

Getting restAPIs with COVID19 information for US states and the world was easy, but finding the information for each town in a state was extremely difficult. Due to the time constraint, we were unable to get the information for the towns.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Although we could not finish all the features we planned to do before the project, I am proud of the everything we've learned and built, and actually getting this done.

What I learned

In this project, we've learned how to get and parse restAPIs in Python and JavaScript, and how flask works. We've also learned how flask works, such as passing data from back end side (Python) to the front end (JavaScript). Using Google APIs and hosting the application on Heroku were also good exercises to learn more about the software ecosystem.
