Uses the GPS capabilities of smartphones to save and upload routes to provide basic data on how cyclists navigate the city. Extra features are: the ability to note with photos and textual descriptions of specific locations as either issues. The app also includes the collection of additional demographic data, including cyclist ability and history as indicators of comfort level to allow analysis of route data around an established taxonomy of urban cyclists, and to enable correlation with existing cyclist count and census data.

remarks

other important remarks for the review, links to other projects, …

At the beginning of each trip, the user selected a trip purpose and then the phone recorded GPS coordinates until the user canceled the trip or indicated that the trip was complete. At this point, the user reconfirmed the trip purpose, entered a comment to accompany the trip (if desired), and submitted the data to the web server. Think of it as a travel survey that asks you why and where you are riding, but automatically maps your route rather than asking you to write it down from memory.
