Contest Brief

Looking to create an application that runs on Android and allows users to take a photo and post to record location, date, time etc. And then submit a report to local council.

Along the lines of snapcrap ([login to view URL])

But this one is for recording graffiti - need location, date of report, picture. Ideally with some form of mash-up with google maps.

Please give me a quick technical architecture of how you would go about solving and and a rough estimate of cost and we can refine both from there.

It's a community project so no revenue generation but a bit of fun, please try to stick to free tools as much as possible such as google docs, drive, maps, etc. etc. Ideally want it self supporting with minimal to no running costs once working as POC.

    Hi, I read the description and I must say this project looks very interesting. I do have a few questions:

    - How would you want users to sign up? Connect their facebook like in snapcrap?

    - "And then submit a report to local council." here what is the local council contact information?

    - What is the preferred method of contact (since an image, location, text etc are being sent)?

      Submit a report - again as it's a test perhaps an email would be a sensible thing to do, we can use a dummy receiver account for test purposes at the moment as long as we could change it later.

      For contact what I was thinking here was that the user would be posting directly from an application on their phone. i.e. hold up the phone, take a photo and what would be recorded in the App is the time, location, picture etc. And that would be uploaded to "somewhere???" (please reccomend) from within the App.
