Purpose

How does one easily live a sustainable lifestyle in Chicago? Although resources exists, they are sporatic and isolated. This app seeks to create a centralized resource to enable residents within Chicago to find resources like electric vehicle charging stations, farmers markets, parks and more in a single location.

Functionality Summary:

  • On page load, pending browser settings, app will pinpoint user location (or be asked)
  • Zip search is limited to Chicago zips only. (60601 or 60614 as a couple of good examples to change point of reference.)
  • The menu on the left will retrieve data and add markers on Google map
  • Each data set has a custom pin
  • Each data marker will show an info window on click displaying data for that location, which is dynamically added to each marker on data load.
  • Weather is real-time and based on either Chicago or user location(not what I worked on, so I don’t recall exactly).
