Many of my family and friends are concerned about the availability of everyday items in local stores. I thought a crowdsourced solution would be an excellent solution.
What it does
Users can use a map to view reports of grocery stores in their neighborhood. They can also submit their own entries to contribute to the database.
How I built it
I used HTML for the website. The map was made with Google Maps and the database and form with Airtable.
Challenges I ran into
I had difficulty integrating the Airtable data with Google Maps. I had to link them up with a custom script.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I hope this tool can be of use to everyone.
What I learned
I learned how to use Google Maps to visualize geospacial data.
What's next for MarketCheck
Heatmaps of grocery availibility.
