Game with a purpose
This project is sponsored by Yahoo! Company, the employee Jon Rahoi who is also my alumnus of USFCS, I appreciate that he gave me and my team this opportunity to do this project.
We believed that most people knew where the location is, but they do not know where the location is on the map. Thus, we tried to analysis how people are familiar with the locations on the map. The concept we were using is GWAP (Game with a purpose), we built a game to accumulate the results, as more results we got, as more close we can analysis that for most peoples’ understanding, where is that location on the map.
Before game start, user need to login and select news or events from our database to read, and those data are coming from geo tagger.
Some instructions for the new users.
Pop up google map
Each single news or events will have a correspond location. This initial location is coming from Geo tagger.
Get score !!
After clicking on the map we will generate the score based on how close to the actual location, it is just like dart, the more close the more higher score you will get.
