DiningBuddy is a social dining experiment created for Christopher Newport University.
The goal of the project is to create a social dining experience on campus that allows students to share information about the dining halls from their smartphones.
By using the location services of these devices and a digital GPS coordinate-based map of campus, it is possible to determine how many students using the app are present in a dining hall at any given time. By combining this data with information provided by students about how crowded their dining hall is, the service attempts to make a prediction about the overall status of the location.
