Bike Hack Night is a show & tell of bicycle-related apps, data visualizations, and gadgets. We are thrilled to be co-sponsored by REI, which has invited us to the REI Community Space at Wunder Garten as part of the #unitedoutside celebration. And thanks to co-sponsor Mobility Lab for making this event possible. REI will be providing s'mores, and beer will be available for purchase. At this point we are not expecting a food truck on premises, but you are welcome to bring your own food.
Doors open at 6:00. Speakers begin at 6:30. Because we're expecting a large crowd, consider bringing a laptop or tablet to follow along with the presentations. We'll link to them from bit.ly/bike6. We have seven presentations:
• Ryan Abrahamsen will show how Terrain360 maps bike trails to panoramic images.
• Eric Brelsford will show you how to get your city's bike lanes into OpenStreetMap and talk about why you would want to.
• James Graham will present DDOT's new GIS street data, and bicycling Level of Traffic Stress analysis.
• Kate Rabinowitz will dig into Bike to Work Day 2016, By the Numbers.
• Alexandra Ulsh, Nelle Pierson, and Chris Slatt will show how DCFemTech and Code for DC built a map for WABA showing proximity to bike infrastructure.
• Justin Molineaux of Baas Bikes will show how smartphones can create low-cost, data-rich bikeshare systems.
• Tom Lee will show how he collected bike safety data using ultrasonic sensors, ESP8266 wifi microcontrollers and smartphones.
Thanks to Wunder Garten and Google for our speaker swag.
