DiscoverNP - National park passport on your mobile
I recently learned iOS development and started working on a simple iOS app for my obsession of collecting national park passport stamps.
What is national park passport?
- It is a book for travelers to collect national park stamps. These stamps can be found at national park visitor centers, but… also many other location. It is a challenges and obsessions that many people have. You can check out National park travelers club. It is a legit thing.
- Use user’s GPS location, allow them to collect stamps when they are in a park
- The stamp has to have park name, date, city and state
- Support 61 national parks, but not all visitor centers
- Work offline
- Swift for iOS app
- Python for downloading raw data and building data set I need for the app
- mapbox for display and download offline map
- National Park Service API for getting national park data
- Nation Park open data for national park boundaries
- Trello for project management
- Upwork for my app icon design
