After meeting with our advisor, we have realized that we will need to base our minimum viable product on one single retailer’s price-matching, stock algorithm since APIs differ immensely between retailers (Target, Walmart etc.). Our previous plan was to have a broader web-scraping performed, yet because of the fundamental differences in APIs this may be further down the line. Another point that we have agreed to reconsider is that prediction of a wildfire simply from heat data is tough and not very accurate - we might be able to get better results focusing on predicting the possible trajectory of it instead. Currently, we are looking into querying the Target API and extracting stock information per product ID and loading the information into a .csv file that could be parsed to be plugged into the UI, along with location information.
