BikeMaps.org is a web-map that was launched in October 2014 to capture cycling crashes, near misses, hazards and thefts. With only 30% of cycling crashes captured through traditional means (ICBC or police reports), the goal of BikeMaps.org is to capture a larger share of cycling incidents through volunteer mapping on the website. Dr. Nelson will discuss efforts to promote the project and where the mapping is occurring. She will also present preliminary results from the data collected to date. Technology developments currently underway or planned for the near future will also be shared.
About the Presenter:
Dr. Trisalyn Nelson is an associate professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria, where she also holds a Lansdowne Chair in Spatial Sciences. She is the founder of the SPAR (Spatial Pattern Analysis and Research) Lab whose research has included a wide variety of topics from grizzly bear habitat to urban crime patterns. A keen cyclist, Dr. Nelson embarked upon the BikeMaps.org project upon learning that there were large data gaps in cycling safety research that could be filled with volunteered geographic data.

|11.12.2014 :: QUAD 2015 Update - Investing in our Transportation Evolution
The QUAD Conference is an annual transportation conference held in the Pacific Northwest that provides a forum for transportation professionals to network, exchange ideas, discuss best practices, share research and showcase recent projects. The general focus is on land-based transportation, such as walking, cycling, transit, goods movement and vehicles. A wide variety of topics are covered, including planning, analysis, design, construction, maintenance, operations, safety, technology and financing, among others.
The theme for the 2015 QUAD Conference is "Investing in our Transportation Evolution". Many trends are reshaping the transportation industry‘s landscape, such as social media, autonomous vehicles, and the shift towards active transportation. Discover the innovative ways that transportation professionals are leading this evolution, and how the public and private sectors are investing in this change.
This year, the QUAD Conference is pleased to welcome Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place as our partners. The Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place Conference will be held in Vancouver in 2016 with the theme of “Better Health through Active Transportation.” To provide a hint of what is to come in 2016, a few sessions, tours and workshops will be added to the QUAD Conference to highlight the link between transportation and health.
