Louisville, Colo. – 36 Commuting Solutions is pleased to announce the release of the new BikeLinks 36 interactive bike map. The cutting edge map comes as the product of an unprecedented two-year collaborative effort between 36 Commuting Solutions, Esri and Longmont, Boulder, Boulder County, Louisville, Superior, Lafayette, Broomfield, Arvada and Westminster governments to develop a detailed bicycle map for the entire US 36 corridor. The communities collaborated to update bike facilities data and then seamlessly blended them into one all-encompassing product.
The BikeLinks36 interactive map was created using Esri’s new cloud platform called ArcGIS Online. This impressive platform is a cloud-based, collaborative content management system for maps, apps, data and other geospatial information. This system allows the stakeholders to make updates or corrections needed to the map in real-time. The ArcGIS Online platform also allows users to view the map using a special mobile app for their phones, so users can utilize the map as they travel by bike.
“Providing the public with updated bicycling facilities for multiple communities is a terrific way to promote bicycle commuting. As the state celebrates Colorado Bike Month and Bike to Work Day on June 27, we are excited to offer this new resource for our corridor area,” said 36 Commuting Solutions Executive Director, Audrey DeBarros.
“We are proud to have the BikeLinks 36 maps as one of the first projects to use our ArcGIS Online platform locally,” said Esri Solution Engineer, Tom Murray. “We feel it is a perfect fit for the system, and a wonderful project. Watching multiple communities work so well together has been very inspiring.”
A print version of the map will be developed and released later this year.
