THE PROBLEM

 

This project is a proposal for an application that would help map the collaboration prospects of Harvard students and eventually lead in the creation of a digital platform that would foster these collaborations.

 

The idea was inspired by a growing need for cross-collaboration between the different Harvard schools. Often students have no means of reaching out to each other, even though they may have overlapping fields of research or interest.

(RE)MAPPING THE HARVARD CAMPUS

 

Our means of achieving a Harvard wide platform of communication would first be the recreation the campus map based on the movement of students. This map would then reveal the hotspots of cross-school interaction and optimum positions of physical elements to encourage collaboration.

USER PROFILE

 

The second part of the application would be a social networking platform, where people would create a profile with their fields of interest from where they would allow their position to be revealed to people of common interests within a particular range.

 

A database collecting movement data from registered users was developed using Javascript, jQuery and MongoDB.
