In the last 24 hours, we were working as a group under the name of FAN. Our group had chosen the category of Ideate and create and thus, we decided to enter the race in the field of the Earth’s Dictionary. Our challenge was to develop a creative way for the public and scientists alike to learn the definitions of Earth-related scientific and technical terms, using the power of crowdsourcing.
Our solution to this challenge that we will provide people with an easy way to know more about earth but this a traditional dictionary way to understand new terms but our application is absolutely different as it will be provided by categories as when the user opens it, he will find the branches of Earth Science which NASA cares for. If he wanted to find a particular word, he is already provided by the Dictionary search engine which is at the top right corner in the screen. We know that not all users want to search in something deep so, we had to put two terms (Short Description & Long Description). We also put photos to be shared in social media sites or even be used in projects.
We all know that a good dictionary should have a narration so, we had provided it with English US, English UK narrations. Our data base is from many resources and thus we will increase the number of words by time as the same way we added the first words.the only mistakes we had faced are the bugs during coding our app and we fixed it by getting help from the internet or even from the mentors beside us.
Finally, we thank our god that lead us a good time management and hardworking times to finish our project in time and Also, many thanks to the Technical mentors that helped us and encouraged us a lot.
