The Basilica of Saint Mary Star of the Sea Web App was developed by Jason Beede of Boy Scout Troup 578 Key West and his team of volunteers as an Eagle Scout service project. The walking tour portion of the App was inspired by a printed brochure created by Terry O'Dell as his Eagle Scout project. The author thanks Kim Gorton for providing the original idea for the Web App project.

The main requirement for an Eagle Scout Service Project is for the Scout to "plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community."
