What it does
Loca allows users to track their periods and access sanitary product locations all in one easy-to-use app. Its modern UI makes periods easy, allowing women* to efficiently find public washrooms and shelters near their location that offer sanitary products throughout the City of Vancouver.
How we built it
Using Figma and Mapbox, we implemented data accurately onto a map to include within our prototype. The prototype demonstrates how a user could easily view information about the site of sanitary products, including its wheelchair accessibility and hours of operation.
What's next for Loca?
Unfortunately we did not have enough time and experience in app development, so we were unable to develop a functional app. We look to launch this as an app someday! Furthermore, we would like to get in touch with the City of Vancouver to get a map of where free sanitary dispensers are located to be implemented into our application.
