Identify strategic areas for new day-care infrastructure openings !
In France, finding a day-care for a child can be a strenuous task. Waiting lists are often long and there are significant territorial disparities.
With Nurseries Set Up Bot, the goal is to create an interactive environment where one can visualize potentially attractive areas for new nursery locations.
The analyses that mainly concerned geo-spatial data calculations and visualizations, is done using a PostGis database and a geo server, which allows the creation of a hexagonal grid on the studied area.
Used data source: day-care names, locations, and the information on the quantity of available places captured through web scraping, while economic and socio-demographic data is retrieved through open data sites hosted by government institutions.
Three specific scores were created in order to quantify each zone’s attractiveness for the opening of a new day-care:
Finally, the Global score is derived from a mathematical formula that takes the supply/demand score and the economic score to calculate the overall potential appeal of an area.
