We wanted to data mine twitter for live tweets within the last 7 days for keywords like "sick", "cold", "flu", ect. and use the geodata from those apps to populate a map so that a user could visually see where sickness was "trending".
What it does
It searches twitter for tweets with keywords in twitter and gets their location. That location is then used to populate a map.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We were able to mine a large sum of a data and we were able to populate a map via hardcoding, the challenge was trying to seamlessly integrate the two together.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We learned a lot and had fun along the way.
