Boston Development Map

March 2019 – April 2019

The purpose of this project is to show the development of Boston over time since 2009. We used the Approved Building Permits Database found on Boston’s Dataset Website. The dataset was imported into MySQL, our backend database management system.The frontend was coded with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. When a user interacts with the frontend website, requests are made to the backend using Node.js for a particular SQL database query. In particular, we used the Express web application framework. I worked with more than 400,000 permit data.
