Pokemon Go for real communities

What it does

Modern social media encourages bad habits: isolation, sedentary life style.

Our app lets users pin comments, pictures, and media to specific geo-locations. Other users must go directly to the location to interact with this media.

This has great applications for guided tourism, sharing tips and information, and building a healthy social media platform that encourages physical movement.

How we built it

Powered by google maps, angular front end for visualization, back end database.

Challenges we ran into

Wifi connectivity

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Deploying a functional app that people can start using right away!
