Traveling is an opportunity to explore the world. If one is a frequent traveler, it may become difficult to keep a record of the locations one has visited. We have designed an application that allows one to easily do so.
What it does
A user can authenticate with Facebook. The application then receives the user's email address and uses the email address to keep a record of the user's travels in a SQL database. The user can add new locations and view the locations in a list organized by rating. Additionally, users can view the locations they have visited on Google Maps.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Passing information between pages was complex and getting the Google Geocoding API to work was particularly challenging. Using the Facebook APIs was also tricky. However, we were able to overcome these challenges.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to get multiple APIs working on a single application.
What we learned
We learned plenty of web development skills as well as how to use new APIs.
What's next for TravelRecorder
Add features that could post to Facebook on the user's behalf and let the user edit their entries.
