Australian Bike Blackspots on Google Maps
The Bike Blackspot application for the iPhone allows cyclists in Australia to report locations that are dangerous for bike users. The application launched, by the Australian Green Party, will be used by Green Party MP's to identify cycle routes and other areas in need of improvement for bike users.
Green Part MP Scott Ludlum has published a Western Australian Bike Blackspot Map and a Melbourne Black Spot map using Google Maps and data submitted by the app's users. Residents in Melbourne and Western Australia can use the maps to view locations that have been identified as providing problems for cyclists.
