Inspiration

We wanted to build a website that could help out individuals who are on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic with peace of mind in these difficult times. We wished to do that by offering a convenient tool for individuals to help out their friends, families, and loved ones with a simple but comprehensive testing location service.

What it does

The website is a dynamic map navigation web application that allows people to find the nearest testing locations for coronavirus diagnosis to their current locations, with the locations marked out by state. Users can select for the state in which they reside and be able to instantly find a convenient testing location near them.

How I built it

We built up this website using a Firebase instance as the backend infrastructure, using its API and features to fetch the data needed to render the navigation map interface of the website. We also used Postman APIs to help pin the testing locations on top of the map as well as JavaScript and React to render the website's overall layout and functionalities.
