Project Overview

Help make the case for better cycle parking provision in Dublin

#DemandAStand is a project for Dublin Cycling Campaign that enables the cycling community of Dublin to show Dublin City Council where more cycle parking is badly needed. The map clearly highlights an under provision of secure cycle parking throughout the city and can provide a basis for informed decisions and making a case for change.

How does it work?

#DemandAStand is accessible in the Dublin Cycling Project in the Space Engagers app, where contributing to the project is easy.

1  Upload your pictures

Take a picture of a place where you think there should be new cycle parking or better cycle parking.

2 Add Information

Once a picture has been taken the user is prompted to provide information, for example on what have they recorded and why. The picture and information is then posted onto a shared map that everyone can see.

3  Interact with other posts

Contribute to the community by starting or join a discussion on any post that interests you. Users can like, comment on, and share any post, generating conversations locally and further afield.

Collected Information

What about the data?

The data gathered provides an overview of a key issue that affects the cycling experience in Dublin. A lack of secure cycle parking acts as a barrier to cycling in the city. The project will use the crowd-sourced data to directly lobby to Dublin City Council for more cycle parking.

The map is accessible to anyone and it is possible to download the data in different formats from the web app.
