In a novel use of GPS data provided by users that track their walks, runs and cycles through our cities, city planners can now visualise the flows of these more difficult to track groups at different times of day.
In addition, planners have been able to locate places to create cycle paths and pedestrian bridges and see how quickly they have been adopted into peoples routes, keeping people away from traffic and making our cities safer.
Its a great use of the data we naturally create and we can feel good about our exercise routines helping to shape our cities in such a way that it makes our runs, walks and cycles safer.

Be warned, as the maps are interactive, they are addictive and you can spend hours looking at the runs and cycles people have done in your area and beyond. Don't say I didn't warn you!
