What it does
Allows users to input information about a certain such as if there is a traffic jam or if nuclear fallout (the theme that it is based on) has reached a certain area and the direction it is coming from. The information can simply be put in by using the combo boxes provided and double-clicking anywhere on the map. Then people that use the application can be informed before going on a trip so that they can make amendments to their plans.
How we built it
Used Bing Maps APIs.
Challenges we ran into
Was quite difficult to learn how to use the Bing Maps APIs and used the wrong .NET on Visual Studio.

What's next for Fallout/Traffic Map
Geolocation or geocode to show where the user is on the map so they can see the nearest information surrounding them. Allow the user to use text boxes to also input information (location) rather than double-clicking on the map.
