Project Description

I used a general web app building tool called Flatpack Apps (that I created in the past), to develop an app for finding trends in a data set pertaining to recycling.

Data Story

My aim was to upload the three data sources linked to the challenge (three .csv files) to my app, and then use my app to analyse the data. I only managed to get one of the .csv files uploaded however (the Waste Projection Model Actuals file). The National Waste Database was quite large (71k lines), and required a lot of clean up. I spent a lot of time on that file but couldn't get it uploaded.
