Erwin Wifi Map

For the first time in the school’s history, Erwin Middle School is providing each student a laptop. Unfortunately, many students do not have sufficient access to Wifi off-campus. To give students ample opportunity to explore new ideas on the internet, they must have access to it. Our web app, Erwin Wifi Map, allows students from Erwin Middle School to tap into the power of Google Maps to track local Wifi hotspots, save the passwords, and rate hotspots marked on an interactive map. To accomplish the goals of the project, we implement a database using a cloud service to save hotspot and user information. The application uses this database to populate a map within the user’s browser window. This project has been continually tested by the students at Erwin Middle School as well as UNCA and updated as part of an iterative development cycle. The Buncombe County school Board will consider this application as a pilot for other schools in its system.
