COVIDHackathon2020

We were inspired by thinking about issues COVID-19 caused that affect our daily lives, specifically as life begins to open up once again. Although we did not have much previous experience in developing applications, we learned the basics of React Native to create a simple verison of the application. Additionally, we created a Figma to get an idea of what the app would visually look like here: [https://www.figma.com/proto/c6Odp1lzEjn5dNCgFOuehP/Interspace?node-id=78%3A1&scaling=scale-down] Other resources we used to further understand various Social Media APIs are here: Instagram: [https://medium.com/@bruceoh/data-mining-instagram-scraper-location-tag-w-yelp-data-set-2-94728064a4c0] Facebook: [https://developers.facebook.com/docs/places/web/search] and Snapchat: [https://github.com/CaliAlec/snap-map-private-api] We faced challenges trying to integrate the data over to the physical application. However, we believe with more experience and time with React Native it would not be too complicated of a process. We also had to consider the legality of taking this information, we ultimately concluded since the information is based on public data it did not feel ethically wrong.
