We had the idea of mapping Monzo data on a map but werent sure how we would take our idea further. On a train accross the country we had our eureka moment! We decided to try and integrate travel journey information from payments into our Map.
What it does
It shows a geographical representation of Monzo payments.
Challenges we ran into
We planned to gather travel data using a range of different company APIs. However, after some extensive exploration of a number of companies and there APIs we realised that this wouldn't be possible. Our solution to this was to create a file upload option on our website and an email parser to gather travel data directly from customer receipts.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We had very limited UI knowledge so its been a learning journey.
What's next for Monzo Maps
Integrating with more companies to show MORE data!
