With iDOL, users can view inspections by state or by industry (according to NAICS 07 categories), or search by business name, viewing the results on a map. Establishments that have had violations are identified with red pins, and those that have not are identified with green pins. For more information about an establishment, one can select the pin as is normally done in the iPhone Maps application, to display details of the inspection, including the name and address of the business, the date(s) of inspection, type and number of violation, and the amount of fines assessed. Information from the detail view can be shared via email.
