Use bikemaps.org to report cycling incidents

Staff from our Vancouver office distributed 500 water bottles to unsuspecting cyclists on June 18th in an effort to help raise awareness about BikeMaps.org -a global mapping system that allows citizens to map locations of cycling incidents and report on the nature of the event, developed by Dr. Trisalyn Nelson’s team at the University of Victoria. Attributes collected are designed for spatial modeling research on predictors of safety and risk, and to aid surveillance and planning. Released in October 2014, within 2 months the website had more than 14,000 visitors and mapping in 14 countries. An Android app is now available with an iPhone version coming in July.
