In an effort to report disasters, register volunteers, and rejuvenate those impacted, we created this website to help locate those who are in need as well as those who are willing to volunteer.
What it does
This Website displays locations of people where they need help as well as where people can help. For example, after a big wildfire. One can register as a Minuteman and display their home with an open room. Those who are affected by the fire can come to the website and look for Minutemen to receive help.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into problems such as turning addresses into coordinates and using sql data base connecting tot he website.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Integration with Google API, leading to the global access to the website of reporting events and connecting communities.
What we learned
Experience with Java Script under pressure, leading to quick learning and implementation.
What's next for Minutemen
Social Media integration, check-in system, more in-depth information on events that are occurring or have occurred
