Quest

Quest is an interactive map/game/thing using open data from the Natural History Museum (NHM)Data Portal.

Things you can do...

  • see youself on a map and the artefacts/collections around you
  • TODO - claim collections and add to your visited places of interest -TODO - more cool stuff we haven't written yet

You can also:

  • Import and save files from GitHub, Dropbox, Google Drive and One Drive
  • Drag and drop files into Dillinger
  • Export documents as Markdown, HTML and PDF

This app was written for Over The Air Hackathon 2016, solving the The Natural History Open Data Challenge. Many thanks go to the organisers and sponsors of this event!
