A technology-themed podcast (Think Different) largely discussing books, software industry, Apple, and related technologies in Turkish.
An app that shows the street trees of Hamburg along with their location, species and other information.
In 2017, I had the pleasure of visiting Hamburg and was immediately captivated by the city’s lush greenery, especially the abundance of trees. The very next year, I made the decision to relocate here. As I gazed out of my window one day, pondering the majestic tree before me, I found myself discussing this fascination with my former colleague, Julika. To my delight, she introduced me to a website that meticulously cataloged all the trees in Hamburg, complete with their planting year and botanical classification.
More recently, I conceived an exciting idea to create an app that would enhance people’s understanding of Hamburg’s magnificent trees while they explore the city. The app currently boasts an extensive database, containing information on over 200,000 street trees in Hamburg. Not only does it precisely pinpoint each tree’s location on a map, but it also offers a wealth of information, including the tree’s species, planting year, and other pertinent details. Users can even perform location-based searches to unearth these natural wonders. Even if you choose to enable location services, rest assured that the app does not collect any of your personal data. Every bit of tree-related information is self-contained within the app, ensuring that no requests are sent to external servers. Your privacy is of utmost importance to me.
Oh, by the way, the tree just outside my window happened to be a red horse-chestnut, thoughtfully planted in the year 1985.
