It's gorgeous!  Maps made with scraped public data are the 2nd best kind of map...

Here we go, the first map: http://cdb.io/1hcvW98

I combined permits that have the exact same addresses, will upload everything to github later.
Also, it's on cartoDB right now, ultimately, we might look for a different host. But this is for free and was easy to make.

Now we have to work on streamlining the process and updating it and also hosting it.

Thanks to everyone who helped!

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!
