The Team

We are a group of students that wanted to do our part in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inspiration

We saw that there were many drive-thru test centers for Covid 19, but there wasn't a database that listed them all. So we wanted to become part of the solution to the Covid 19 crisis by making a website that includes all the testing sites.

What it does

The website we’ve created will compile the list of all the testing centers in the US so that the user can identify the nearest location. It also includes an interactive map, a data dashboard, a form to add more testing locations, and a contact page.

How we built it

First, we used Spreadsheets to collect the data. Then we used wix.com to build the site. We used Storepoint to build the interactive map and also used Google Data Studio for the data dashboard.

Challenges we ran into

We had trouble collecting all the data because there was no single resource with all the testing locations. We had to go through various web pages and news articles to find the test center locations.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of our cooperation in combining the map with the website. We are also proud of the many hours we put into data collection.

What we learned

We learned that cooperation is very essential to success in a group project; if one person lacks, everyone suffers and the whole project gets delayed.

What's next for Covid 19 Test Centers Map & Data

The next step is to continue research and find all the test center locations in the US which can also be obtained through crowd-sourcing. We can also work with other partners to collect more data.
