Mapping Rosario on a bike, Argentina
This project was developed by IADB (Interamerican Development Bank), Rosario’s government (Argentina) and RubiCo. The project was based on mapping Rosario using RubiCo’s technology. The instance was developed in two phases. During the first part, a total of 43 volunteers used a Rubi device during 3 weeks producing enough data for acknowledging where the hot avenues of the city are and give light to what the urban bike user behavior is. Furthermore, during the latter phase, 150 Rubi devices were installed in the public bike sharing system generating sensitive data in order to analyze and improve the system’s activities. A very interesting report developed from data is the transport security report index which shown that more the bike lanes were built the fewer accidents (involving bikes) were observed on the streets.
Mapping Rosario on a bike is a project developed under ICE (Spanish initials for emergent cities initiative) an IADB initiative. It was presented at the 2017 World Bike Forum and since then, many cities have shown great interest in developing a bike data programs on their locations.
