Whether it's you very first day at a new school or you're a lost parent during back to school night, Mapped has got your back. As our ideas orbited the hemispheres of our brains during the first ten hours, we were indecisive about potential applications since some were impossible to accomplish due to our limited programming experience and the inability to craft a project that could be used practically. As we lost each other in the masses of the hackathon, we remembered the days as freshmen in our high school and how intimidating and perplexing the layout of the school was. We then realized that we should create a web application that would guide people throughout our school to provide a visual presentation that they could interaction with.
How it works
Challenges I ran into
Throughout the hacking process, we encountered a myriad of complications. We learned to create graphics by using KhanAcademy but were unsure how to use this code on our web app (with the help of a mentor, we learned we had to download p5.js). We also were not sure how to get our program to connect room numbers with the coordinates on our map without doing a lengthy if else statement (a mentor was able to help us again).
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for EVHS Interactive Campus Map
We hope to make the layout look a little nicer and perhaps add a 3d view to make it even easier to locate classes!
