Roast Hoodmaps 2.0
The 2.0 version of my app https://hoodmaps.com is almost ready for launch. It helps you find the best neighborhoods to stay and live when you're new to a city. And especially avoid the tourist traps.
It's fully crowdsourced which means anyone can use the paintbrush to color areas on the map.
The previous version was a slight transparent pixel grid laid over a Google Maps map.
I worked on the new version the last few months, I've managed to put the colored map below the actual map, so that it doesn't block the details of the map. Also I've drawn official neighborhood boundaries (like Shoreditch, Bushwick, Jordaan, Bangsar, Ekkamai) and normalized the pixels within those boundaries to one color. So you can see which neighborhood is categorized as what type. It also has a predictive algorithm to figure out what's the next upcoming area in a city (like where to buy real estate), and what's the current best area.
Let me know what you think, and what I can still improve. I'd say it's about version 1.8 now, so just need your final feedback to finish it off! Thanks :)
