For some time we have been using the Cyclescape cycle campaigners’ forum to report on and discuss consultations and other major campaigning issues. It’s open to everyone and offers features that make it more effective than Yahoo Groups as a way to discuss and reach conclusions about consultations and other issues. One thing we have been missing is a way to quickly discover the issues and consultations that have upcoming deadlines and where they are located.
The Cyclescape Issues Map is an automated tool that acquires information from Cyclescape about all the issues posted (current and past) throughout London, shows their positions and shapes with textual summaries and links to Cyclescape. Options are provided to turn various categories on and off.
You will find links to notes providing information about the map and about Cyclescape on the map page. We hope this tool will enable us to make more effective use of Cyclescape to gather opinions and formulate our campaigning positions.
Cyclescape is also used by LCC staff to announce all major consultations and the LCC website has a copy of the map.
