hacknc 2016 project
Optimeet was designed from a user-oriented mindset -- it does one simple thing, is easy to use, and it does it well. When people want to meet up, it is often quite difficult to come up with a "middle ground" location, especially in areas they are unfamiliar with. Optimeet allows any person to create an event, invite their friends with a share link and invitation code, and see potential meeting places as points of interest on a map. The application uses Google Place and esri ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs present potential meeting places. Optimeet also contains a directional tool to plot routes from the user's current location to a point of interest selected on the map.
