After running into problems with the first few programs we came up with due to the APIs available being too limited, we came across an API called FullContact that is able to take an e-mail to twitter handle and scour the internet for more information on that person. With this API, we came up with the idea to use twitter's API to find keywords or phrases, find out who said them, put that information into FullContact to receive data on them such as age, gender, and location, and then plot this information on a map using the Google Maps.
How we built it
To build it we used python as the base, and used twitter, FullContact, and Google Maps' API.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of the fact that we were able to get 4 APIs to work in tandem with each other. Prior to thacks2, we had no idea how to use API, or even what they entailed. However, despite this were able to get a grasp on them and even get them to work together.
