Route planners for bicycling are a great tool for cyclists, municipalities and tourism (related) organisations. It makes way finding much more easy and gives cyclists the independence that they often seek. Also, it makes it easier for municipalities, regions and organisations to give information to (potential) cyclists. The interactive route planner and navigation “Naviki” is an even more attractive means of transportation for commuters, citizens and visitors.

  7. 7. 04-11-12One  of  Naviki‘s  most  popular  and  main  func6ons  is  cycle  rou6ng  between  arbitrary  start  and  des6na6on  addresses.  It  is  also  possible  to  add  stops  in  between  the  start  and  des6na6on   8
  8. 8. 04-11-12Ci6es,  regions,  tourism  organisa6ons  and  companies  can  be  partners  in  Naviki  and  provide  their  own  cycle  route  network.  They  get  their  own  landingpage.  This  is  the  landingpage  of  the  city  of  Rome   9
  9. 9. 05-11-12The  official  cycle  path  network  (if  provided  to  Naviki)  appears  highlighted  and  is  preferred  within  rou6ng  results  whenever  appropriate.    So  far  it  is  what  you  would  expect  a  routeplanner  to  do   10

  14. 14. 04-11-12Additional information for landingpage partners is the fact that Navikiautomatically recognizes intersections of all routes and connects themto a network.This network is the base for routing requests.That means: the more people use Naviki, the better it will become intime. It is a self-improving system. 15
  15. 15. 04-11-12Also,  there  are  social  control  mechanisms:    -­‐   Paths  with  high  ranking  receive  priority  in  rou6ng,  paths  with  low  ranking  are  avoided  -­‐   Comments  give  more  detailed  knowledge  -­‐   And  aKer  a  certain  number  of  alerts,  Naviki  automa6cally  excludes  problema6c  sec6ons   16
