NolaCycle is a project aimed to create a high quality cycling map of New Orleans. Cycling maps include information beyond just streets and their names that benefits cyclists. In our map, we highlight the pavement quality, car travel speed, lane width, and special caution areas (busy intersections, man-eating potholes, or high accident areas). Volunteers help to collect this data by attending mapping events.
The information is then digitized to make a map of the data we collected to help cyclists - young, old, local, and tourist alike - navigate New Orleans.

Check out the blog for updates on the project, ways to get involved, and volunteer mapping events!

Digital map working session tomorrow Oct 27th

If you have two free hours tomorrow evening, swing by my place (e-mail for directions) at 7:30pm to help build the data base for the digital map. We need LOTS of help on this since it's a very time consuming process. Please bring a laptop with Excel.

I'll make some of my specialty vegan chocolate cookies for volunteers (and yes, they are seriously just as good as non-vegan cookies. If you don't believe me, then come tomorrow and taste for yourself).
