Inspired from the discussion on HEMiDEMi, macdog created a service called “Losheng Walker” (corresponding to “Taipei Walker“, a magazine which focuses on food and fun in Taipei), using the API provided by UrMap.
This service allows users recommending featured food, drink, and snacks near the Lo-sheng sanatorium. The idea is to demonstrate that the community around the sanatorium may benefit from the reservation of Lo-Sheng Sanatorium, and to alleviate the resistance from the local residents in Hsinchuang City, where the sanatorium is located.
