Bicyclists collect and share information on Cyclopath.
It's the height of summer and bicycle wheels are spinning. For routes with built-in personal preferences and community knowledge, check out Cyclopath, a crowdsourced geowiki built by computer science students and led by Prof. Loren Terveen.
Cyclopath collects information about bike routes from pedal-pushers around the state. Anyone can edit the maps, add notes, tag locations, and more. The result is "the most comprehensive and up-to-date bicycle information resource in the world."
A companion Android app lets users take Cyclopath along as they explore Minnesota's bike trails and routes.
Loren Terveen is a professor of computer science at the University of Minnesota. Terveen currently is involved in a number of projects analyzing social media data and designing and evaluating social computing systems. His two major projects are Cyclopath and CitizenSense.
