bike de boa is an open and colaborative map of places to park your bike. It's focused on being super easy to use and also educative. With the app you can search for bike parkings nearby, and at the same time you learn if they are safe to use and why they are so.
We believe that the bicycle is the future of urban mobility, and that having better bike parkings is a great way of incentivating the bike culture in the cities. This project intends to push forward the discussion of what are good bike parkings, at the same time we collect data about the presence and evolution of this kind of structure in the cities of Brazil.
This project is a (Progressive) Web App, which means it loads and runs fast accross all platforms and device sizes, as well as is fully indexable by search engines.
This web client consumes from an open API. It licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International. It basically means you can use its data to build your own bike app, academic research, as however you want - as long as you give us credit. :)
If you're not a developer you can still easily access all of our data using our web dashboard at https://www.bikedeboa.com.br/dados. Visualize, search, filter and even download all of our data in several formats. Still not what you need? Let us know!
We have dozens of cool things we want to do, from small bugfixes to whole new features. Our tasks are all neatly documented in the Github Issues session (sorry, Portuguese only). Please let us know if you'd like to help us. Feel free to propose new stuff as well! :)
Contributing should be super easy even if you have very basic Front-end skills. The web client was developed with popular libraries like JQuery and Twitter Bootstra aiming to be the most accessible possible for developers of any skill level. Still, always feel free to reach to us if you have any questions.
