This is an ongoing project for CU-CitizenAccess.org to track health inspections for local area restaurants.

The application is built using Python, GeoDjango, PostGres, and hosted on Heroku.

A Python script runs weekly to crawl the Champaign-Urbana Public Health website for changes in their inspection reports.

This has been enormously popular service for our readers. We continue to roll out incremental improvements over time, and likewise use the data to drive scholarly research and analysis for reporting.
