The scraping that was developed at CTC1 is now working again – and has been enhanced and problems fixed.
The data is now being pulled into Python dictionaries.
They have cleansed the two data tables, and processed the resulting file. That is now being shown on Google mpas – with point and polygon data.
they have now created @aberdeenevents_ and is test tweeting locations of facilities. This is drawn from MatchTheCity. They will now switch to pulling and tweeting activities form the same source – eg exercise class happening tomorrow.
The team is working on mapping the process of selecting a GP, distance, gender, or client rating.
in parallel, they are looking at linking with FitBit and Project Ginsberg – allowing the user to self-diagnose and access activities to address their condition.
Now have a project name; Fit Like, and a rather smart logo.
Having done some wireframe prototyping, they are now working on pulling data from MatchTheCity so that they can test filtering / navigation etc
Match the city has a logo and has already added functionality that has been requested by other teams. Andrew has developed user docs – and using feedback has refined them. The match the city data is now being consumed by several other applications.
The team has been modelling the data flows for their app. they have worked allowing selection of activity / sweat leve;, location, activity times. Now working on search function and developing user profiles.
