SFpayphones

connecting you with a lot of pay phones

lives at sfpayphones.urbansmore.com

This app calls an outdated (~2007) dataset of payphones in San Francisco by neighborhood, and connects the call to the first one that answers. The goal was to create a verified and correct map and dataset of payphones in San Francisco.

It uses...

-A public google spreadsheet for the pay phone locations and numbers: https://docs.google.com/a/emilyville.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AhXimdB90zwNdFk1dmlzbjNSclVkUmliQU4wU2hyOHc&output=html

-D3 to vizualize which ones are ringing

How to use this app

Text the name of the neighborhood to the chosen number to be connected with all the payphones in that neighborhood. It sometimes crashes - that's a lot of phone calls. If so, just ping me.
