Sports!

The Sports portion of the Marauder’s Map displays the sports games occurring at Tufts on the current day. The LabView code gets the html fromĀ http://gotuftsjumbos.com/landing/index and checks each sports schedule for the games that are happening on a given day. It then places the sport into a list if it is a home game. The sport, along with its coordinate location, is sent to the internet via Thingworx. From there, the Map group pulls the sport and location and displays the sport as text on the map at the associated coordinates.

In future versions, the map can include a picture of the sport, the time the game is happening, and the current or final score of the event.
