We wanted to incorporate some part of google maps into this form of exploration.
What it does
DayTrip allows users to pick from major cities from google maps and immerse themselves into the city. Users can also enable ambient sounds of city life and/or music choices .
How we built it
We used React to create the website and used google's YouTube and Maps API to play the audio for the music and 4k footage of the city.
Challenges we ran into
Lots of CSS issues, links not working with animations, solving merging conflicts, and getting to deploy on GitHub pages.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting the video playback to work on top of the music/ambient playing, and the landing page's animations.
What we learned
How to collaborate in a larger-scaled project on GitHub and sharing code.
What's next for DayTrip
Looking to expand our city locations and add polish up the features.
