Terrorism Data Tool

This is a RESTful mobile application. It retrieves information from a J2EE service in the form of JSON string. The application uses AChartEngine libraries to render graphs of the data. The data comes from http://www.start.umd.edu/start/ which provides an open source terror database. The organization that operates the website is the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism which is a center for excellence of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security based at the University of Maryland. The database is apparently the most comprehensive database of terrorist attacks.

More information about the mobile app can be viewed at the link to the app on Google Play. The RESTful service resides on an OpenShift Linux server. The mobile app is able to use a url with parameters to retrieve a response from the RESTful service. The mobile app builds a line chart and a pie chart. The user selects which chart is displayed.

I designed and built both the RESTful J2EE service and the Android application.
