Three months ago, Chicago released OpenGrid, a project which lets you explore data in your neighborhood. This week, we released v1.0.2, which has fixed a number of bugs discovered since the launch, many of them by helpful members of the public.
We’ve improved documentation at a number of points, but the biggest improvements has been to the quick search bar. Now, when you search a point-of-interest, such as “hospital” or “gas station” will return 20 results.
Searching a specific address, such as “50 W Washington” will return just one top result.
This release is only available in the source code at the above link and running on chicago.opengrid.io.
If you feel something isn’t working that way it should, please feel free to submit it on our Issues page.
