Bringing Data to the Table

Team Name: 
Utiliteam

This project is about putting data in the every day objects we interact with so the public can learn and discover about their community without having to look for it.

The app is about safety. wen You find damage you send evidence to the council to stop dangers in the community.

For example if somebody trips over cracked pavement they can then pin-point the location using the location settings on their device and report the problem back to 
council automatically.

The app uses Google maps to alert other users to the current incidents in their area and change their travel course if required.

Explanation of data sets used - local council maps etc.
