Disaster Relief stemmed from a desire to streamline relief efforts.

What it does

Disaster Relief is a web application composed of a threat map, which allows users to pinpoint the exact locations of where there are disasters happening, and a feed that updates whether or not help has been dispatched. Tickets can be submitted to request help.

How we built it

We built the map using Google APIs and Restful services to grab disaster data from server and update the map and table of help dispatched. The backend was done with Rest APIs that communicate with the client application. We implemented a priority queue that uses an algorithm to determine the severity of a disaster and how to allocate workers. As for the front end, we utilized Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, & Javascript.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into merge issues on Git which deleted portions of our project.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're happy that we were able to fix some of the key issues.

What we learned

We all picked up more front end and back end experience since many of the things we used were new to us.

What's next for Disaster Relief

We're looking to improve the overall look and optimize more of the code. We plan to continue working on this.
