The ALS Service Locator Application
This CDC iPad application, brought to you by the National Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Registry has been designed as a way for users to easily access the closest ALS service providers nearest the user's ZIP code.
The application allows a user to pick a particular type of ALS facility (Clinics, ALS Association (ALSA) Chapters or Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Offices), enter a valid ZIP code and perform a search. Alternatively, a user can use the geolocation feature to find their current location and use the returned ZIP code to perform a search. The results will return a map and table of the five closest ALS facilities nearest the provided ZIP code. The results are ordered from A through E, whereas A is the closest facility and E is the farthest facility. The tabular information contains the facility's name, affiliation, address, phone and the approximate distance from the provided ZIP code. The map is fully interactive and allows the user to pan and zoom into the facilities location. The user can touch a facility point to get information on that particular facility.
