Projects

GeoClassy Python package

The geoClassy Python package was developed from the need of using GeoJSON files with OpenStreetMap data to classify points which GPS coordinates are known. Using the GeoJSON format as input, the package can also be used with files from sources different from OpenStreetMap.

Examples of use:

  • - find the neighborhood of the city with most AirBnB beds;
  • - classification of customers by key account area of competence;
  • - filter of road accidents in a certain province;
  • - assessment of the air quality for a specific Municipality;
  • - list of cities affected by the passage of a hurricane.

Amazon best deals about Lego and products for pets

The project is based on reading prices from Amazon e-commerce platforms and to publish the greatest deals to segmented user groups (on Telegram channels and Facebook pages). At this moment there are three groups: users passionate by Lego bricks, owners of cats, owners of dogs. The tool is one hundred percent written in Python 3.x/MySQL and uses several APIs (including Product Advertising API, Telegram API, and Facebook Graph API).

Delivery 74

The website provided a list of shipping fees from several parcel companies in Italy, based on the shipping location, the delivery location, the dimensions, and the weight of the box. Using this platform, casual shipping users could choose the cheapest solution based on the performance level described. I developed every part of the website (mainly in PHP, HTML, MySQL and jQuery) and also project the User Interface with complex controls (for example autocomplete of locations based on geolocation APIs). The project ended mostly because parcel services didn't have affiliation programs so it was very difficult to monetize the user's experiences.
