The main goal of this project was an educational one to showcase what I have learned in this course. To do that I would use many technologies to design and develop an application that could be hosted in the cloud and could potentially be scaled up at any point depending on the requirements of the potential user of same. It would essentially store animal data as well as their owners which can in turn be used to facilitate a “stick” approach to resolve the issue of animal fouling – the “stick” being; if an owner’s animal fouls in a public place and the owner doesn’t remove it responsibly, then they have to pay a fine. My research suggests that there are a few similar applications in the US and the UK – but they used in privatised settings and my application would be ideally used by a government department (making the fine and adherence process easier).
