Putt from the Sky proposal

Date created
Over the last 20 years the golf world has seen a substantial increase in the use of technology to help improve performance at the top level of the game.  Despite these advances, many areas of golf continue to rely on unreliable and inaccurate practices. One area in particular are yardage books. Yardage books are a collection of notes and maps on each of the 18 holes on the golf course. These books often contain information such as distances to specific hazards, reminders for the player and maps of the green. These books are crucial to a player's success. At any competitive tournament you will see all the players referencing their own books to gather information affecting their next shot. With the exception of the professionals playing at the highest level, the green maps in yardage books are handwritten maps that usually lack detail and are not to proper scale. Putt from the Sky is aiming to bring the advances in technology over the last 20 years to a wider audience. Our goal is to provide a digital and automated mapping solution that would allow players at all levels access to accurate and detailed maps of greens.
Engineering Science undergraduates are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and final presentation
