Inspiration

Imagine you are trying to move to a new state. How do you know what area to relocate to? You find an online website that ranks cities by education, crime, and cost of living. You put in your hometown, which you know is a safe neighborhood. But the website is outdated! It didn't factor in the new school built a few years ago.

This is why we built Openito. Many data sets get outdated very quickly. Openito is a 2-in-1 app. One part is an online, open-source event planner that allows users to make group events without any ads. The second part is a data analyzer that uses Keyman’s Algorithm to plot maps of areas according to a filter, such as the crime rate. The data analyzer will receive a constant influx of data as people use the event planner app. This way, the data analyzer will never get outdated.

What it does

The Openito event planner app lets users create events for groups. Usually, websites and apps that provide this service has ads or require a subscription. Openito is ad-free and has to subscription fees. However, when creating an event, you have to fill out a short form, which asks questions about the community, safety, and activities in the area. This information provides an updated data set for the data analyzer.

The Openito data analyzer will receive a constant influx of data as people use the event planner app. It takes data points of locations and crime, creating a plot chart on top of the map. Using Keyman’s Algorithm, it creates nodes that represent sub-communities that emphasize the trait of crime.

What's next for Openito

The future plan is to link the two parts of the app together, creating a constant flow of data. Also, we plan to create an interface for the data analyzer.
