Food Safety

by Liang S.


This is a map regarding food safety and business licenses issued from May 1st to the present, as well as food cart locations in chicago area. This subject is particularly interests me because there has been more than three businesses forced shut down due to illegal licensing issues in the past year alone. The red dots simulate food inspections while green hexagons simulate business licenses issued within the past 4 months. There are a few blue dots indicating foot cart locations but from personal experience there is known to be more food carts around chicago so the data set is rather inaccurate and the business licensing as well as food inspection not over lapping some of the food cart location makes use wonder how safe are the food we consume and how many businesses are running illegally.
