Developed for the leading bicycle and pedestrian planners, WikiMapping lets the public share their perspectives on a map. For example, someone can show “This is where I live. This is where I go. And these are the barriers to bicycling.”
As a registered project administrator, you’ll be able to create a draft project with limited users and comments. This can then be activated to a paid Professional Project.
How WikiMapping benefits planners
WikiMapping benefits planners who need to get meaningful public input for bicycle and pedestrian projects. It supplements public meeting input, and it saves planners time by capturing map data digitally in a structured way. Planners get better data, from more people and in less time, than they could get in person. The data can be analyzed in GIS. While public meetings have their place, WikiMapping can collect thousands of comments from hundreds of people in just a few weeks when used in conjunction with social media.
WikiMapping works on iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox and current versions of Internet Explorer. Data can be exported into GIS formats. WikiMapping is built to work on open source mapping or google maps platforms. We do not guarantee that google will be an option in the future.
