Hearing many stories of people being afraid to walk through the city due to crime, we decided to build an app that will show people where crime happens in their city
What it does
Display where in the city a crime occurs and which type of crime occured.
How I built it
Node.js backend, jquery & bootstrap used on the front. Google maps api for the maps visualization
Challenges I ran into
Getting Node.js to talk to the google maps api
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting google maps api to work with our project.
What I learned
Need rest to program effectively
What's next for Crime Mapper
- Reroute users away crime using Google Maps Direction API
