The basic motivation for this application is to serve as a travel planner focusing on restau-
rants and bars, around those seven American cities in the provided Yelp dataset. In our
final implementation, major functionality is to search by zip code with preferences on
different categories. Our system will return the highest rated businesses based on user
preference, providing business name, corresponding url link, business image, rating stars,
and with relevant magic verbal description from Bing search.
This application also supports member registration and login, once you have logged in as
a member, it provides more magic features. For instance, as a member, you can add your
favorite business entity from results, and after you come back to homepage, you would be
able to see all your added businesses labeled in real Google maps.
