Anyone here good with coding?

Recommended Posts

Salam,

I'm a graduate from a course called Enterprise and entrepreneurship and I recently had an idea. However, I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if it's possible to execute it.

Part of the idea is creating a map from my town and then walking around every corner to map out the exact location and houses. 

I'm not sure of what coding language I'll need to learn and I'm not sure if it's even possible, but for some reason, I believe it's possible because there is an app called 'Google Maps.'

Could anyone with the right amount of knowledge guide me on how I could create the idea I have? Or even guide me to where I could learn to make something like this?

 

Thank you for anyone who does participate in this post in advance.

There is no need to create such app if there is already one, precisely Google Maps. If you need a map to add other features to it and make a brand new application, you can use license free maps.

In any case, to answer your original question, you would have to be able to code in native mobile code (java or objective C, for instance). At the same time, you will have to store all data, and for that you will need to code an algorithm that builds the geoposition data and send it to your setted up server.

If you plan on making a startup, the required investment is significantly high as you will need full stack developers just to make the app (not counting on marketing).

In Lebanon, Google Maps isn't programmed well so if I type in an area, 90% of the time it won't show up. Hense why I want to make one my self, additionally that's why I want to learn to code my self. I'd rather learn coding than have to spend money on a coder, since I can learn to do what he/she can do.
