The challenges of urbanism are crying out for new ways to approach traffic planning. The bicycle can become a key solution. To ensure that money is invested wisely in traffic infrastructure and that there is a clear focus on demand, GPS traffic data collection via digital applications will play a key role in future traffic planning. Commonly used traffic counters deliver spot-related data relating to what has occured in the past, whereas new data analysis tools using the new possibilities of intelligent transport systems can provide a comprehensive picture of the actual traffic situation.
Bike Citizens Analytics is a GPS data analysis tool designed specifically to analyse bicycle traffic which places bicycle data analyses at the forefront of urban planning. It provides invaluable insights into cycling behaviour. It enables estimations of potential effects of of changes to infrastructure that are yet to be implemented or achieved. Missing links in the bicycle network can be detected and analysed. Furthermore, the digital tool enables infrastructure projects and their impacts o bicycle traffic to be evaluated and monitored.
Bike Citizens Analytics plays a key role in making cities more cycling friendly. It was developed in 2017 by Bike Citizens and the NHTV in Breda and it is beeing continuously developed. Its first version was named Bike Print, the current version is called Cycle Print.
