An application that pulls from Yelp, Foursquare and existing public landmark information (scraped from the web or given to us by the source) to create an iPhone app that promotes and guides visitors to the city.
We are in the initial phases of this project. We've vetted the idea with the city contacts and gotten their support. In the coming weeks we will start fleshing out the project.
Macon is trying to promote itself as a day-trip from Atlanta and Savannah and worth visiting. The city is full of history and a simple app could be useful in drawing visitors from the larger cities in the state. The platform would be adaptable for other Macon-sized cities as well.
