BriskCYCLE: Understand cyclist patterns

In partnership with Eco-Counter, Brisk Synergies has developed a complete platform to perform data-driven management of bicycle networks: Eco-Visio Maps.

  • Identify the departure and arrival zones of cyclists in your city
  • Map and quantify bicycle traffic on your network with automatic counts
  • Visualize the average speed per direction and per section of the road on your entire network

Eco-Visio Maps is a cloud-based data integration and mapping analysis platform. It is designed to bring a better understanding of bicycle use to active transportation managers. Flexible and modular, Eco-Visio Maps can import a wide range of datasets to quickly perform meaningful cartographic analysis.

With Eco-Visio Maps:

  • Overlay GPS traces on infrastructure
  • Visualize the flow of cyclists per segment of your network (e.g. volume analysis, “desire lines” identification)
  • Visualize the average speed per direction and per section of the road on your entire network
  • Extrapolate your GPS traces with count data
  • Create origin-destination matrices
  • Identify shortest, safest and preferred routes
  • Filter your analysis by demographics and behavioral variables (e.g. cycling profile, trip purpose, gender).

Eco-Visio Maps allows for the easy integration of a multitude bicycle traffic data, such as GPS traces from user reporting apps or bike share systems, accident data, and automatic count data.

  • GPS traces from smartphone apps

Eco-Visio Maps can integrate GPS traces from most smartphone trip reporting applications. Do you need a GPS dataset to start with? We offer I Cycle Here for download on the App Store and Google Play Store. Use the I Cycle Here app, or have one custom-made for your community, to gather a crowdsourced GPS dataset!

  • Bike-sharing system data

Bike-sharing systems can provide useful data on bicycle usage. Data can include trip origin and destination from stations or bicycle trip GPS traces for bicycles equipped with GPS trackers. Eco-Visio Maps integrates your data all in one place.

  • Automatic count data

Automatic counters are the primary source of data to accurately measure cycling volumes and their evolution at key locations. Thanks to our expert team and Eco-Visio Maps, it is possible to extrapolate GPS traces with count data for an optimum understanding of cycling on your network.

  • Accident data

Once you have extrapolated GPS traces with your automatic count data, calculate exposure rates by integrating accident data into the platform. Identify areas on your network that would benefit from a safety assessment.

Want to start collecting bicycle trip information with the help from cyclists in your city? Eco-Visio Tracking is a dedicated service specifically designed to create, follow and run trip reporting campaigns. This service includes online software and the free-to-use GPS tracking smartphone application I Cycle Here. Some of the ways Eco-Visio Tracking can be used include:

  • To launch a trip reporting campaign
  • To visualize trips shared by cyclists
  • To interact through the smartphone application (newsfeed and communication tool)
  • To poll cyclists and better understand their profiles
