I might be able to get some local law enforcement agencies to chip in some money to pay for this development so if you are interested e-mail me at jsciii at speakeasy.net. (I don't have enough posts to be allowed to post e-mail addresses.)
Like residents of many cities across the country, our residents occasionally hear gun fire.
I'd like an app that would run on as many GPS-enabled phones as possible that would let the resident face the direction that the gun fire appeared to come from. The app would contact a server at the police department's dispatcher. If enough directional fixes were phoned in the server would estimate the location of the gun fire and notify a dispatcher.
