Dynamic Connections Map is an interactive project where the public can rate their bicycle routes from safe (green) to unsafe (red) through five simple questions. Although the default location is Berlin, anyone from around the world may participate by zooming the map out and scoring their local area. It’s a great experiment that helps to inform current, and potential cyclists of all riding levels. The information can be used by planners, and councils to understand the community’s interests, and help to improve infrastructure and biking networks.
It took me less than a few minutes to complete. Encourage all your cycling enthusiast buddies to take part. It’d be great to see the world map lit up in colour!
A great project. Share your insights!
