A public engagement tool for planners

To help people of all ages walk, bike or use transit, it helps to

  • Reduce barriers to walking and bicycling
  • Minimize distance to important destinations
  • Maximize comfort

Therefore, planners throughout the US use WikiMapping to

  • Identify barriers, problems or safety concerns
  • Understand where people go and how they get there
  • Maximize benefits to constituents

In 2015, about 75 transportation projects have used WikiMapping to answer important questions.  Over 30,000 people have used WikiMapping projects this year.

Some ways to use WikiMapping

 

Public input - Validated

Home

 View Project

Getting routes – As a planner, you not only need origin destination data, you may also need to know routes and barriers.

People add comments – With this survey, people can draw lines and add points on a custom base map.

People validate comments – People can view comments made by others, and they can add their own comments.

It’s like being at a public meeting and having people show you what they care about.

Public input - Closed Survey

Home

 View Project

Survey on a Map – A survey question pops up when a line or point is added to the map.

Private results – People can’t see comments from others.

Three kinds of surveys – Surveys are attached to the Welcome message, Line, and Point.  

You have choices in how you set up a project.  As part of a survey, people can even upload files.
