How I Started

Built by Coding for Impact, NYC Connector is a project which allows users to easily find and locate all different types of places near them where they can volunteer at, donate to, or find help at. Enter a zip code or address and nearby resources, along with information will be displayed on the map.

How I Built This

The project took us about a week to build. We programmed the website using HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Jquery, the Google Maps API, and ran a few python scripts to preprocess the data for geocoding. We built the website on our own, and used the locations and coordinates that the NYC Open Data datasets provided to display facilities on google maps.
