Biking DC mashup

DC's bike lanes and routes drawn on a Google Map.

Update: This project is not live any more.

Inspired by the Apps for Democracy contest which encouraged developers to build useful applications from DC's Data Catalog, I built a Google Maps mashup which displays bike lanes and signed bike routes. Use the map as a starting to point to plan your ride through the city.

Tech Notes

The 'Bicycle Lane' and 'Signed Bike Route' KMZ files from the DC Data Catalog are used. Data is pulled daily. Before displaying, the files are filtered to display only existing bike lanes.
