Abstract
In nations worldwide, roads play a major part in the livelihood of individuals. They aid in the transport of both people and goods from one location to another. In developed countries, most roads are tarred making travel easier and quicker. In developing countries, this is not the case. Quite an amount of road work and development is still needed in these regions. These roads normally have different grades of road quality and have different effects on the individuals that use them. With the introduction of mapping applications such as Google Maps, individuals can place information about various locations on a mapping interface. In this project, an application is built to allow individuals collect data about the quality of roads around them. This data will be viewed on a map interface. With such data, drivers would be able to choose they type of roads they would want use.
