Increased natural disasters are tearing communities down and the public needs to be informed and ready for relief efforts
What it does
Show graphic datasets and infographics to inform about important but less covered topics on disasters
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Deciding on a narrow enough topic that everyone on the team was happy with, making a well-formed plan for the project while trying to learn new technologies
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having something that runs!
What we learned
Some React, different approaches to visualizing data and information, and we learned what sort of data sets are available on disaster relief and the state of that data quality
What's next for Disaster Guides
The open data on this topic will take longer to transform and visualize but we want our website to eventually be more data-driven, although we already have good information from other's research. Also improving the functionality and UI of the website.
