Fish and Chip Awards - Google Maps API

The Fish and Chip Awards is an annual competition to find the best fish and chip takeaway and restaurant in the UK.

For this site I worked on an interactive map which had three types of markers; one to represent runners up, one to represent winners and one for the active marker.

You can filter the map by just takeaways or those with restaurants as well as by region. By clicking on the markers you're presented with more information about that business. When you click on a marker or use one of the filters, the map zooms in and pans to the relevant area, containing the matching markers.

The information, including a photo and a description of the fish and chip vendor was pulled in through a CSV file.

All work featured was carried out through my employment at Whitespace and as part of a project team.
