Here you go – and for anyone else who’d like it.  I was able to geocode most of the locations to building footprints directly using the City Planning Department’s PAD file, so the locational accuracy is almost certainly better than the Google maps api.  But please take a look and let me know if there are any location issues.

Steve, I'd love to have the .shp if you don't mind sending it.

Way to go BetaNYC - awesome collaboration happening here!

Great, thanks! I am working on combining the different age ranges and then I will map it so we have a first version!

I’ve geocoded the file, in case you’d like the georeferenced version.  See attached.  I added three fields at the end of Chris’s file – GeocodedCategory, Lat, and Lon.  The GeocodedCategory indicates the reference data I used for the geocoding (PAD2013 basically means it’s geocoded to a building footprint; LION indicates the LION centerline file).  I can share the shapefile also if you’d like.

I took a crack at this tonight.  Wrote a scraper in Ruby using the Mechanize gem.  It grabs all the goodies in the details pages for all 2200 daycares and outputs to CSV.  

 

It doesn't grab the inspection results, but that wouldn't be too hard to add at this point.  

 

I hope it helps!  Geocode it and you're ready to map!
