Love for learning languages and a linguistics class.
What it does
Galena is a website to help users understand the magnitude of language death globally.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
INTEGRATION - everyone was able to get their separate pieces working but having it all come together was difficult.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the aesthetic of the site and the numerous learning curves we overcame!
What we learned
1)The ArcGIS' API is troublesome to use but has many interesting and cool applications. 2)In addition, we learned that although it is laborious to use python to run a web page, it is possible! 3)Many HTTP error codes (404, 500,etc)
What's next for Galena
In the future, we would include more interesting graphs and fascinating data regarding the topic. We would also clean up some of the visuals, like limiting max zoom and only getting country level of details.
