Flag Finder

The origin of this project is quite simple but a regular issue I faced while creating things that requires the usage of good quality picture, free to use, and in a quick time. Googling things can still be time consuming in certain times to find what you are looking for. Here I’m retrieving a CSV table containing 2 main pieces of information: the name of the picture and a re-usable image link from wikipedia CDN. This type of data can publicly be found online through websites such as data:world.

Once I managed to retrieve and convert those data in javascript, populate the table result through the browser, I was then able to apply more logic and user inputs. The interface is rudimentary but it was extremely fruitful to go through that process and the logic behind. Looking at our current world, the flag finder is just a very small project, but offers limitless possibilities of usage with other sets of big datas.
