Cycle Atlanta is a partnership with the City of Atlanta to broaden participation in the planning of bicycle infrastructure through the use of smartphones and citizen sensing. We are exploring and critiquing new tools for participatory digital democracy while helping the City incorporate a data-driven process for understanding and responding to the needs of cyclists in Atlanta. More details about the apps along with interactive tools for exploring the data can be found at cycleatlanta.org.
