Cycling-oriented traffic planning
RadVis - Digitalization in cycling
The state of Baden-Württemberg has set itself the goal of achieving a 20 percent share of cycling by 2030 so that the statewide, national and international climate protection goals can be implemented.
For this reason, climate-neutral forms of mobility such as cycling must be given priority. This means a paradigm shift in transportation planning, which has focused heavily on the car in recent decades.
With a traffic turnaround, Baden-Württemberg wants to make its streets more livable and ensure that living spaces become people-friendly again.
A tool for documenting and planning cycling networks
For cycling-oriented planning, data is the basis for designing mobility that is oriented to the needs of the users. In addition to this data, information on cycling infrastructure plays a central role. The Mobility Center Baden-Württemberg has therefore been working intensively on the digital representation of a state-wide bicycle network.
RadVIS, which it developed together with WPS Workplace Solutions, is a unique system for cycling infrastructure information in Germany that creates a clear and comprehensive data basis for cycling infrastructure and thus facilitates cycling planning.
How does RadVIS work?
Where is a cycle path located? And how wide is it? Where is the RadNETZ Baden-Württemberg and where are the district or municipal networks? Many of these questions can be answered, but usually only with difficulty and cause quite a bit of work. Various information on cycling infrastructure is available in the administration, but often not digitally in one place. This makes it difficult to exchange information with neighboring municipalities, higher administrative levels and the public.
With the statewide Cycling Infrastructure System (RadVIS), the state of Baden-Württemberg supports districts and municipalities in designing and documenting their cycling networks. The state's own mobility center contributes directly to digitization in cycling and enables simplified cycling planning. RadVIS is a project that enables the state of Baden-Württemberg to make its contribution to the traffic turnaround.
If you don't know how wide the bike lane is, how high curbs are or what the condition is, you can only close gaps and make improvements to a limited extent. With RadVIS, this data from different sources is unified and presented in one system for the first time. The system offers comprehensive functions for the collection, processing and evaluation of the available data.
In order to reach its full potential, RadVIS is actively maintained by the users, and so that RadVIS starts with a good basis, the Mobility Center Baden-Württemberg is expanding the existing condition recording and evaluation for cycle paths to include other aspects such as cycle path width.
