Welcome to the world of restaurants that we have yet to discover. There is so much to venture off too, that what we know so far about food has barely begun to scratch the surface. Thankfully, due to Zomato. A online database that helps inform us of all restaurants around the globe. Its like yelp, but international. They are not as popular in the states, but to those who are interested get a sense of wonder of what has left to be discovered. With Zomato, I was able to construct a shiny app displaying the various types restaurants out there.


Analysis and Improvements

Overall, this dataset has provided an numerous amounts of data to play with to understand how much we have yet to discover with its tantalizing dishes. It would seem that it is still lacking a hidden bulk of its discovery has still yet to be obtain. In due time, I believe that more and more people will definitely help report more restaurants and review them in its entirety. For now, we will just have to wait...



The purpose of this project is to visually see the various types of restaurants using an interactive map in R. With the help of the shiny dashboard, I was able to implement the use of R and leaflet to create the visual analysis of the restaurants around the world.
