The nessie interface and Google now gave us the idea that we could use the rich source of location information to help suggest places to eat.
What it does
Based on your transaction location history, we map your transactions, create a heatmap of those transactions, and then use the Yelp API to ultimately recommend areas to eat in commonly visited places.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
We had a lot of issues with Cross-Origin-Requests because Flask didn't play well with those requests. We also had some issues figuring out how to do geospatial processing.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We finished everything we set out to do in less than we anticipated. We managed to figure out 3 APIs in the short time we were given.
What I learned
How to create a Flask server, how to map geospatial data using the ESRI ArcGIS API.
What's next for Pique
Recommending locations based on time of day, and upcoming events, too. Essentially, predicting into the future rather than just giving recommendations for now.
