New Orleans Cycling on Google Maps

NolaCycle Data Entry Map

This Google Map displays data collected and digitized by volunteers for the NolaCycle Bike Map Project in New Orleans.

The map shows useful information for cyclists about the streets of New Orleans. Roads on the map are colored to indicate road quality, road width and traffic speed. Using the map cyclists can tell at a glance which roads are better for cyclists and which roads are probably best avoided.

I think there are plans to use the collected data to create a map of recommended routes. The data could also be used to create a trip planner with cycling directions avoiding the red roads on the map.
