Nearby / Application


Nearby app aims to solve underused Public Open Spaces (POSs) through a network design. Users can explore their surroundings, filtered preferred atmosphere by selected keywords, and obtain recommendations based on descriptions from previous visitors' data. Also, they can register their hidden spots to introduce to others. Through this app service, users can think about POSs as a way that they have never thought of before and compare the options available, and this will help with their thinking of what they want instead of passively going to a place.
