The BC Analytics tool allows in-depth insight into GPS cycling data, analysis, scenario building and evaluation of cycling infrastructure projects. The tool visualises data in the form of “heat maps” and answers various questions such as:

  • numbers of rides within a time frame for the entire road net
  • detailed segment analysis (how often, when, and how fast do people cycle on a certain road?)
  • origins and destinations of rides for any given street segment
  • frequent routes (which routes bring cyclists to a certain location?)
  • speed
  • waiting times
  • detours from optimal route
  • what would the heat map look like if everybody took the optimal route?
  • isochrones (how far can one travel by bike from any given point?)
  • travel time improvement by infrastructure implementation (before - after)

BC analytics is a web based implementation licensed per year and terminal. Cities can use the tool to plan and evaluate infrastructure projects and soft policies. The more tracking data available, the better for the analysis.

Bike Citizens uses only self-generated data. We do neither buy nor sell tracking data. For scaling calculation BC Analytics can be combined with data from counting stations.

Good Example

The Bike Citizens Analytics tool is currently (2017) being implemented as integral part of the PING campaign in Brussels. 1000 participants are tracking their rides and mark locations where they feel uneasy, unsafe or in danger as a cyclist. The "pings" are being set into correlation with the overall track data to determine circumstance and relevance.
