Planners in Montgomery County, MD, created a “heat map” to predict where the need is likely to be highest in the county for bicycling routes. Using a color-coded system, the map is designed to help policymakers prioritize investment in bicycling routes and facilities.
The map is based on a points system, in which population and employment density are given the most weight, followed by proximity to public transportation, recreation centers and schools, said David Anspacher, a senior planner for the county’s Planning Department and co-creator of the heat map.
