Crowdsourced Bicycle Map

The Dynamic Connections Map lets cyclists in Berlin map the best bike routes and let them figure out which routes they should take in the future, based on recommendations from other cyclists.

The website first asks users to use a simple map interface to select a bike route they take frequently. They request data on its bike-friendliness, how central it is, the safety of any intersections, and how happy they feel while riding on it. The end result: a map of Berlin’s streets, sortable by all the factors listed above.

Not only does the Bike Map help cyclists find better routes, it is also a handy guide for urban planners evaluating placement for future biking infrastructure.
