iWitness Map and the Live Awareness Map.
What it does
Brings in social media posts related to Houston pollution events. Makes the public aware of events near them.
How I built it
Scripts in Python Used TCEQ API to get data on air emission events that occur in Houston Used geocoding to get coordinates of location cites Get tweets from the surrounding area and preform keyword searches to identify relevant tweets
Font End Web Used LeafletJS, JQuery, Bootstrap, NodeJS, ExpressJS.
Challenges I ran into
Datascrapping Facebook/Twitter proved difficult and there was limited effective keywords.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of

What I learned
What's next for Hazardous Environmental Events Map
If concept can be proven useful, this might make a good addition to the Breathe Tool map. Overall, should be implemented as a citywide alert system.
