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.

Location of this weekend's mapping meet-ups

Here's a lovely little map of our study area for this weekend's mapping events. We'll be mapping between Canal St. and Orleans Ave. from City Park Ave. to Basin St. The meeting locations are called out by the red placemarkers.
