The project uses Google Fusion Tables to populate our map with over 17,000 points of data. The map displays each establishment's latest inspection results from 2015 and 2016, and is color coded for quick reference.

Challenges

Problem: We built a back-end for our site but were not able to connect our server to our domain correctly.
Solution: We temporarily solved this by using Google Fusion Tables and javascript but this has left our project less responsive and currently it does not work on mobile.
Problem: Does not work on mobile.
Solution: We modified the iframe parameters to be mobile friendly.
Problem: Multiple entries were found for individual restaurants with different inspection outcomes.
Solution: We cleaned up the data to exclude all but the most recent inspection.
Problem: The process of updating the data due to many passes at cleaning the data up was clunky and inefficient.
Solution: The Fusion Table is synced to a Google Sheet, allowing for easier updating of the data.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
