We wanted to provide a way for people to stay hydrated around NYC.
What it does
Display water fountains on a map for people to get clean drinking water.
How we built it
We used the MERN stack and heavily used the leaflet API to provide information for nearby drinking location. We populated our database with an NYC dataset. Also with love.
Challenges we ran into
Learning new APIs and trying to incorporate as many APIs as possible while still maintaining the spirit of the application.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Working successfully as a team.
What we learned
An application does not need to have many features for it to provide value to the end-user. If anything, a simple and streamlined user-experience is key to making the application attractive.
