NYC BigApps


Hot Spot NYC helps those both old and new to New York find the best areas for their chosen activities, based on both density of establishments catering to that activity, as well as the rating of those establishments. It utilizes many sources of information from the NYC Data Mine as well as partners with services like Yelp to do it. The app gathers user ratings and establishment information for bars, music venues, parks, restaurants, sports, and types of shopping and displays them on a heat map of activity. The UI also includes an augmented reality view so users can navigate to their next hot spot on the street level.
