Overview

Each train ticket contains information about the two stations, the date, and price of the tickets. These are then integrated with with Google Maps API to show the journeys. The user can use the arrow keys to cycle through the journeys. The information is usually updated quite sporadically, partly to protect my privacy.

Challenges

Challenge: This is how I got to know the Google Maps API.
Solution: The Google Maps API, although quite easy to use, is also frustrating in places. With this project I got to grips with the basics and managed to make quite an interesting project without too much trouble. (Resolved)
