TaxiRouter SG

TaxiRouter SG is a web app that lets you explore available taxis and taxi stands in Singapore. Period.

It has very little number of features:

  • List all taxi stands in Singapore.
  • Shows all available taxis in the whole Singapore.
  • Tells how many available taxis around you.
  • Tells how far is the nearest taxi stand around you.

That's it.

Story

This project is first inspired by @uzyn's project: Singapore Taxi Data Visualization. Also following up from his talk on FOSS Asia 2016: Uncovering of an obfuscated public governmental API . Later, Data.gov.sg releases a new taxi availability API and that marks the beginning of this project.
