What it does and how I built it
Scrapped data from various sources to build a dataset to be presented on the map as data points. Pushed the dataset to mongodb cluster to be used systematically along with the map and to be placed as markers with data on it. Also, used various APIs available with here maps services to make it an interactive web application for the user to make healthcare and emergency service more accessible.
What I learned
Learnt about geo-coder and routing APIs
