My friends and I love to hang out at night. With so many options it can be difficult to decide where to go eat dinner.
What it does
It finds all of the restaurants with in a fixed distance from you, and it randomly selects one of them. The app will mark the restaurant and display information such as address, name, ratings, and whether or not its open.
How I built it
I used geolocation api to find the location of the user. That data was passed off to the google maps api. I developed a query that consisted or the type of establishment that I wanted to request, as well as the range in which to search for the restaurant.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Despite all of the frustration, I managed to keep a level head and figured out how APIs worked and how to use java script. I am proud of the fact that I did this project without a team. This is my first semester of being in a computer science student. That decision was more reassuring now that I know that I have what it takes to surmount obstacles and challenges. his was the first significant development project that I have undertaken, and I feel like I did a really good job.
What I learned
What's next for Munchie's Map
The next step for Munchie's Map is to allow users to enter address or gps locations and suggest restaurants. Munchie's Map should also expect an update that will allow user to select option such as type of cuisine, range, and price point.
