The inspiration comes from keeping everyone safe.

What it does

Its purpose is to overlay a map of crime rates and crime history over a Google Maps API to help users view crime rates in an area.

How we built it

Data about crime history and crime rates is parsed by a scraper and stored into Google Firebase. This data is then used by a Google Maps API with a heatmap layer to illustrate crime in an area. Users can search locations to view the crime rates in that area, or select a path to determine the safest route to their destination. The main front-end technologies used for this project were HTML/CSS and JavaScript. The main back-end technologies used were Google Maps API and Google Firebase, both of which were implemented with JavaScript.
