Rat infestations in New York City have long been a serious issue with far-reaching consequences. Key concerns include health hazards as rats can carry diseases and contaminate food sources, property damage, sanitation problems arising from poor waste management, psychological stress caused by rat encounters, and negative impacts on housing reputation and property values.
Rat infestations also affect neighborhoods by reducing overall quality of life, leading to economic consequences for businesses, and exacerbating social equity issues, particularly in low-income areas.
To address this problem we developed a "Rats Reviews App". A Tool for Building Inspection, Cleanliness, and Public Safety.
The "Rats Reviews" app is designed to address the issue of rat infestations in New York City, providing a comprehensive platform for residents to access information about rats in their neighborhoods, buildings, and the city as a whole. By allowing users to browse, report, and review rat-related incidents, this app aims to contribute to cleaner and safer urban environments while benefiting both the public and the city.
Browse Rat Incidents:
Users can easily browse a database of rat-related incidents in NYC.
Each incident is categorized by location, date, and severity.
Incidents are presented on a user-friendly map for visual tracking.
Check if Your Building Has Rat History:
Users can search for their building's history with rat sightings and inspections.
Reports on past inspections and their outcomes are accessible to users.
Review and Reports:
Submit Reports and Reviews:
Users can report new rat sightings in their neighborhood or building.
They can leave detailed reviews, describing the situation and the response of relevant authorities.
Validation Through Upvotes:
The app features an upvoting system for reviews.
This allows the community to validate and make helpful reviews more prominent.
