Mapvent Project

Keeping track of events in your local area is astonishingly difficult and, consequently, people are often left unaware of events occurring right under their noses. There is no intuitive general platform that shows where and when all events are happening. This Engineering Project, undertaken for 2016-2017, seeks to produce a functional prototype for a Android app that superimposes events on a map, giving users immediate geographic context, which can be readily understood. Events in this app are aggregated from multiple sources, such as Facebook. The mission of this project is help create real face-to-face communities.
