For my application, I browsed through several data sets from NYC open data. From those sets, I narrowed it down to two options: NYC Zoos & NYC Food Trucks.
After planning out Zoos, I quickly scrapped the idea because of how little the data set was. However, it helped me in starting the process behind an application for food trucks.
For my food truck application, I started off with a basic idea of finding the nearest food truck near me (DATA SET) This application will be for yuppies or the younger generation of kids who are used to food trucks and contributing to the Food Truck boom that is currently happening. There is something exciting about tracking and finding a GOOD food truck near you.
I started my poster design, however will be changing it as my application delves into deeper details. I also haven’t finalized the name of the application, Food Truck Finder, I am still trying to think up something more creative and intuitive.
