A Crowd-Sourced Bike Map of Rochester
Field Reporter is a Google Maps application that allows users to post comments related to the quality of bicycle and pedestrian facilities in and around Rochester, New York.
The map includes multiple custom Fusion Table layers including the 2009 Edition of the Greater Rochester Area Bicycling Map, a map showing Multi-Use Trails and the Erie Canalway Trail. It also includes the Google Panoramio, Weather, Traffic, and Bicycling Layers.
Users can add their own markers to the map with comments and photos. This allows users to improve the map by adding locations of bike racks, pedestrian bridges or anything else that they think will help other cyclists and pedestrians.
