TruxMap is a live map of all the roaming food trucks in Washington DC and elsewhere. Once a food truck has scheduled a stop through its Twitter account or one of our interfaces, a marker of theirs will automatically be generated on our food truck tracker.
We get our data a few different ways. The Twitter feed of every food truck we track is being constantly monitored, and whenever they schedule a current or upcoming stop via a tweet, we will map it in real-time. Food truck operators also schedule stops on TruxMap through our iPhone app using GPS. Lastly, some choose to use the web interface to add themselves to the map.
No. Whatever is said in the Twitter feed is the final word. That's why we suggest you click the "Show Recent Tweets" link in order to reveal the latest information about the food truck. The app has been throroughly tested, however, it is not flawless. For this reason, we ask that you use common sense before driving to Nova Scotia to track down a Los Angeles food truck.
When the geocoding service can't find a particular address, it will place the marker next to City Hall. For Los angeles, this is Downtown on 1st and Main. If you see that a food truck is parked near City Hall, be a little skeptical.
TruxMap is designed to be viewed with Google Chrome. It'll work fine with other browsers as well.
