On The Map

What is this project?

On the Map is an iOS application that lets Udacity students log in either with email and password or through Facebook and then they can access pins that other students have placed on a map at their location. The pins point to an interesting resource that the student wants to share with other students.

What can you learn from this project?

Here are some of the things you can learn with this project:

  • how to use web APIs
  • how to use authentication, including Facebook login
  • how to geocode a location based on a description
  • how to display information on a map
  • how to use asynchronous calls

Being able to access information through a web API and present it either in a table view or other method (here on a map) is a basic skill. This can help others learn this.
