The vision for YSTM was to create a web application to improve on the tedious process of yard sale planning. Paper maps, post-it notes, newspapers, and hours of research seems to be terribly inefficient, especially in larger urban areas where address locations are not completely obvious.
With the advancements in technologies it was obvious that a better way could be found.
Enter Yard Sale Treasure Map. This website was created with the following simple goals in mind:
- Automatically put local sales on a map
- Allow the user to add other sales or stops (sales from newspapers, a stop for coffee, etc)
- Provide the means for the yard-saler to plan and order the route
- Let the yard-saler print a customized map
