Users can extend the cycle path network / mobile apps Center of this week came news of a new bicycle routing of Internet service provider Google across the Atlantic. What Google now in selected cities of the United States provides, the German Internet portal for a few weeks for all over Germany can naviki.org: provides for the simple input of start and finish Naviki wish route for bicycle traffic. The free system originated in a project at the University of applied sciences (MUAS). In contrast, the non-commercial Naviki relies on the integration of information of users to Google. “Therefore all cyclists at Naviki even GPS can publish recorded way: no one can better map out optimal bicycle connections and characterize as the team cyclists”, Naviki Development Manager Sven Luzar is safe. Naviki includes all paths that are uploaded by users in routing if necessary.
Naviki wraps the routes suitable for the bicycle of the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project to provide a close-meshed network. OSM is also one of users created map in the Internet. Due to this data base, which contains many information about little-known shortcuts, the Naviki routing for bicycle traffic is particularly suitable. So far is a beta version of the system available, which will permanently improve the team of University of applied sciences and expand. Currently uses Naviki of but also cards based on the U.S. giant. We show the Google maps for orientation behind our network of cycle routes, calculate the routes but only with Naviki – and OSM data”discusses Luzar. In April it also free Naviki applications for bicycle routing with iPhone and Android phones give. Achim Hennecke
