- Location based Web Mashups
Searching for Groupon Deals based on location
This mashup was inspired by a trip to Washington DC where I wanted to find restaurant deals near my hotel. GrouponNow and similar services did not exist at the time and I wanted to write one up on my own.
This was developed using Groupon API and Google Map API. Google map overlays, markers and info windows are integrated. The web app asks the user for an address (which can be a full address or just a zip code). Then, using Groupon API's, the web app will fetch Groupon deals and use Google Maps API to display the current address and the Groupon deal locations on a Google Map window. Clicking on the marker for the individual deals will cause additional information about the deal to be displayed in an info window with a link to original Groupon deal. At present, it displays all deals in a particular state in USA.
