My idea for the is a Mash-Up application. I have actually done some searching and cannot locate anything of its kind, and plan to actually submit it to construction sites for possible publication.
The idea actually results from my own personal experience and my response to protect others and myself from ever experiencing that again. Our home burglarized several years ago. It is difficult for anyone who has never experienced this to fully understand the pain associated with such an event. Loss of years of our own valuable collection, personal and family jewelry, valuable musical instruments, audio devices, and family heirlooms handed down from generations of our family…all gone.
The anger I feel towards the perpetrators is dangerous, and I would likely wind up in jail myself if I ever discover who they are. Meanwhile, common sensibility prevails and I will rely on my own ingenuity to devise a mash-up site that I only wish existed back when this occurred.
The site will be a collection of entities as follows:
· A mapping feature much like Google Maps, but tailored to show icons of the following, all within a selectable area range:
· Locations of reported robberies
· Locations of Police Departments
· Locations of Pawn Shops
Associations will be created between the elements as follows:
Robberies reported to the police are posted to the map with a list of items stolen & brief descriptions of each item
Pawn shop transactions will also be registered to the site and these will also contain a list of item transacted with brief descriptions of each item
Software will compare these descriptions for possible associations and identify potential matches.
There will also be a link on this site so customers - who so desire - can post inquires and offer rewards for return of merchandise.
· Pawn shops that – by participating – support honest business ethics and integrity.
· Home security systems
· Self defense centers
· Weapons dealerships
· Guard-dog providers
Police will also benefit from reduction in burglaries due to perpetrators being unable to easily exchange goods in this fashion.
