Crowsourcing Berlin's Bicycle Network

Dynamische Verbindunge is a crowdsourced Google Map assessing the bicycle friendliness of Berlin's streets.

The map, created by the BMW Guggenheim Lab, allows the user to view the crowdsourced assessment of Berlin's streets. It is possible to view all the streets that are thought to be bicycle friendly and all those that are deemed to be bicycle unfriendly. It is also possible to view 'safe crossings', 'streets where the action is', and 'happy' and 'stressed streets'.

Users can add their own assessments to the map by answering five questions about individual streets. The BMW Guggenheim Lab hope that the map will help in building Berlin's future bicycle network.
