Smarter cycling tools for cities

Smarter cycling tools for cities, a workshop by Angela van der Kloof. Cycling from point A to point B is only getting easier with Naviki planning, an online route planning tool capable of locating the fastest path to a Monday morning meeting or the most scenic loop through the city’s main attractions, depending on the user’s search input.

Angela, Senior Consultant at Mobycon, will discuss the possibilities this customized tool offers to municipalities in a workshop titled, “Improving Planning for Bicycle Traffic Through User Generated Information” at the Climate Alliance International Annual Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands, May 15, 2013.  

Annually, the conference is held to allow cities committed to reducing their CO2 emissions to share ideas. Angela’s workshop will focus on the ways Naviki can aid municipalities in promoting cycling by allowing them to collect feedback from cyclists about their experiences, data about habits and needs of cyclists and the strengths and weaknesses of their bicycle network overall.  

The Climate Alliance European cities, municipalities, districts, NGOs and other organizations united in the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by voluntarily embracing the commitment to reduce CO2 emissions by 10 percent every five years, halve per capita emissions by 2030, preserve tropical rainforests by avoiding the use of tropical timber and supporting projects and initiatives of their partner, indigenous peoples of the rainforests in the Amazon Basin.
