Inspiration

Help facilitate and expedite the process of rescuing victims of natural disasters by creating an easy to use visualization of who needs rescuing and what they need.

What it does

Organizes survivor information by location and type of need. Allows first responders to see locations of victims to facilitate easier rescue.

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

We ran into lots of challenges getting the APIs to work with each other. We also ran into difficulty integrating HTML, Java, and Javascript to run together well.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were proud of the Java and Javascript integration and learning many APIs in a short amount of time.

What we learned

The main thing we learned was how to use many different APIs and integrate them well within our program. Early application architecture was also necessary. We also learned some basic JavaScript and how to integrate it well with Java.

What's next for Disaster Map

We would like to display satellite images from another API. We would also like to use Google Cloud to integrate large sets of data. We believe it would have the bandwidth and space required to handle the large amounts of data that would be needed in a crisis.
