I was inspired by a fellow hacker, she used the google API to visualize crime data. My idea was to combine two services to see photos in any location.
How it works
Potential use case ---Police stations can search locations for recent photo activity, adding search options could enhance this idea. ---Look at photos posted to Instagram in places you may vacation. ---View random image galleries from your old/ future neighborhood.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm really happy that I met so many people who are so similar to me, I accomplished having a good time and building a cool project with newly gained skills. I was unable to get my project to work for about 5 hours straight because I didn't know anything about SSL/ Certificate errors, so I asked around. Finally I was able to figure out my problem and have my project accomplish what I aimed to do!
What I learned
A lot, most stated above. I 3D printed something for the 1st time, and worked with a lot of web development tools.
What's next for Geographic Gram
I am going to tidy up the User interface and make it look good, then find a way to have random locations come up, and allow user to only return images with specific #hashtags.
