Feel free to provide comments / constructive criticism on my website :


Data for the blood bank application is sourced from Open Government Data Platform.

Data limitation:

One of the limitations of this application is that the data is not 100% accurate. If we plot the raw data we see a few blood bank location in Africa. There are close to 82 NA values for latitude and longitude.

Hence when I created this shiny application I ignored these points.
