It is actually sad that after been to soo many hackathons, nobody never proposed something like that. When I heared the idea I knew it that I had to do it
What it does
It automatically tracks your mobile, and warns you in case of being in a disaster zone. Optionally it was about to get the chat feature, but the time didn't reach
How I built it
First of all we have the true power, the backend, holding all the queries strongly without even slowing down. Then to connect the users and emergency services, I built an iOS app, with the habiltity to see if we are in danger or not, and a webservice that allow emergency workers to find people in an affected area
Challenges I ran into
CORS, hundreds of petitions per second, live tracking, geoJSON parsing.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Solving the challenges previously mentioned
What I learned
I improved all my experience on nodejs swift and webapp, but also I get in touch again with leaflet, learned how firebase works...
What's next for Emergency-helper
Live Chat feature, and algorithm improvement
