More than a router: creating an ecosystem of products using OSM

A session at State of the Map 2013

Friday 6th September, 2013

2:40pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

Martin Lucas-Smith
CycleStreets was one of the earliest UK users of OpenStreetMap, aiming to create an end- user product that solved the challenge of getting from A-B by bicycle in an unfamiliar area in this country. CycleStreets is now a range of products and projects, backed by key players in the cycling community. This 'ecosystem' of offerings includes white-labelled websites for councils and others, apps on five mobile platforms, an API used by third-party transport information providers, and a core website adding value to the underlying routing. Our focus has been on ensuring the routing really 'thinks like a cyclist'. We discuss our project at a time when OSM and cycle routing are becoming less niche.
