Statewide Cycloplan: A Bicycle Planning Tool with Online Participatory GIS

Principal Investigator:

Loren Terveen, Departmental Director, Computer Science and Engineering

Project Summary:

This project extends the Cyclopath bicycle routing system and geographic wiki (which currently covers only the 7-county metropolitan area) to cover the entire state of Minnesota. The researchers do this by working with various stakeholders to acquire relevant datasets and incorporate them into the Cyclopath database. The researchers also will simplify the user interface significantly and speed up interaction, in order to increase the number of people who can interact with the system. The result will be a route finding and information sharing system that can benefit bicyclists and planners throughout the state.
