RackSpotter Crowdsourced Bike Rack Map

March 18, 2015

Rackspotter  Rackspotter Page

RackSpotter is a free, crowdsourced tool available for web browsers and smartphones that can be used to identify bike parking locations throughout the greater Washington DC region and beyond!

RackSpotter uses the community to inventory bicycle racks. Contributors login to the application, use the available map or their phone’s GPS to pinpoint a location, and can then place a bike rack on the map. Users then enter details, such as rack type and number of parking spots, and can even add a photo of the rack using their phone’s camera. Contributors can then add any specific comments or notes before submitting the location.

The locations are instantly compiled and added to the map and made available for search. When planning a trip or arriving at a location, cyclists can use RackSpotter to search an area for bike parking. 

Planning professionals will be able to use this information to detail and inventory current bicycle parking. Bike racks are installed by various groups including local government, private developers and other groups, so maintain an accurate inventory is difficult. Using this tool, planners will be able to better identify bike parking need across the region.

Launch RackSpotter!
