This project tasked us with creating a high-usability web application for the Valparaiso University Department of Geology and its geological specimens collection. The application is made using HTML/CSS, PHP, and SQL to hold and show mineral specimen data collected by the professors within the Geology Department. The purpose of this application is to allow students and professors to easily store and access data on the rocks and minerals that they collect. The students can input a unique code or keyword into a search bar within the application, or scan a unique QR code to search specimens of minerals within the collection. Once queried, the application displays the mineral's name, date of collection, who it was collected by, the region the mineral was found, a description of the mineral, as well as photos of the specimen.
