Abstract of the Article
Geographical information systems (GIS) offer an integrated platform for relating, modeling and
analyzing multiple perspectives on the road space. They can thus be employed in all stages of
better understanding bicycle safety from an explicitly spatial perspective and provide the basis for
informed decisions in the context of cycling promotion.
In the following it is briefly sketched why safety issues need to be addressed in all cycling
promotion initiatives. It is further shown how GIS can be employed in accident analysis and
integrated safety risk models and how these single steps can be consolidated in a single workflow.
The benefit of employing GIS in this context is demonstrated in a case study where a GIS
modeling approach forms the basis of a routing application which recommends safe routes for
bicyclists. Based on experiences from the case study and findings from literature a brief outlook
describes the road ahead.
