AppyBirdDay: Recognising Indian Birds
This is a basic application to recognise Indian birds based on
* how well descriptions match (allowing errors)
* how common a bird is
It is closely linked to Wikipedia.Some warnings:
* Advanced browser features are used, so it may not work in many browsers.
* On first loading it takes a little while for the data to reach the browser (long enough that it may seem it is not working).
* This is an early version and is not tuned and has very little data.Contributing descriptions
On clicking the link, the birds appear on the right hand bar with the most abundant birds that do not have a description on top. While searching even birds with description are shown.
* The code*
The code is athttps://github.com/siddhartha-gadgil/AppyBirdDay
The code is in Dart at the Browser end and scala using the play framework at the server end, using mongodb for the data.
