Fount is aimed at helping the people who spend their lives in the great outdoors, where water is not nearly as conveniently accessible as it is within the comfort of our homes. Water fountains, while fairly common, are not widely recorded on maps. Fount aims to change that.

Utilizing the Google Maps API, Fount displays the locations of nearby water fountains on a map, while recording the user's current location. Since water fountains are not a widely researched data set, Fount relies on crowd sourcing to get its data. When users find a fountain that is not yet listed, they can take a picture, write a short description, and it gets added to the map. Whether its simply people who enjoy a walk outdoors, hardcore joggers, and even hikers, this app aims to make life a little simpler.
