"Find the food you want with a few simple clicks."
What it is about
This is a map aiming to assist people who are struggling with where to find the dishes they want. The motivation arises from our personal experiences. When traveling to a new place, arranging a meeting in a restaurant, or just having a craving for a specific type of food, we usually prefer getting to know the whole picture of the options we can have. However, the interactive maps accessible on the internet so far are not designed to decide on an area to go to, but more on a specific place. This is why the topic is interesting for us and worth diving into.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
What we're proud of
We like how our final product looks because almost all of our initial-planned features have been fulfilled; as the web app displays a heatmap and restaurants, the users can filter in a relatively convenient way. We are especially proud to have built our first Web Application!
What we learned
Extending the dataset will be the priority. This is not only for the amount but also for the options that can be included, such as price range, atmosphere, taking out or not, or even lunch meal availability. Completing the symbology is also a task forward, as well as finer and more precise division of places to their cuisines.
