Insight is a resource to help advance the understanding of COVID-19 and educate the public.
Since people are very concerned about the spread of COVID-19, we created Insight to educate the public by using maps and locations to inform users about essential COVID-19 statistics & information at specific places. We also provide updated news concerning important information related to COVID-19 around the world and tips to help prevent the spread of the virus.
What it Does
Insight is a website that utilizes maps and locations to inform users about essential COVID-19 statistics & information at specific locations. We created a map that highlights information regarding COVID-19 throughout the whole USA. We also created statistics for other countries if you are interested to see the data. We even provide updated news concerning important information related to COVID-19 and tips to help prevent the spread of the virus. Lastly,we know that many people are very paranoid about their exposures with COVID-19, so we created a free quiz that can calculate how likely you are to get contracted with the virus.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had some trouble with creating the map because we had to imports lots of data and make the map look visually appealing.
What we learned
We gained a lot of experience in coding and had lots of fun!
What's next for Insight
Looking into the future, we foresee that our platform will be fully functionable and attracting many users within 8 months. In the next month, we plan to continue to develop our platform by improving the front end looks and back end security & functionality and to make a mobile application. Second, we plan on spending about 2 months to get feedback on our prototype and adjust our product accordingly. Once finished, we can launch the product to the general public. The last and longest step, taking 4 and a half months will be our marketing campaign, in which we will expand our user base. We will do this through two major channels: social media influence and spread of information through word-of-mouth. This is our plan of strategy for Insight.
