Pointz is a safety-focused mapping app that leverages crowdsourcing for micromobility riders – think "Waze" for safe bike routes. Our app navigates riders through safe (low-stress, low-traffic) routes in cities. Roads are rated on a 1-5 bike friendliness scale based on the rider’s comfort level. In order to provide value upfront, we built the “Pointz bot” to identify complex sets of attributes from available datasets to pre-rate roads. Our riders can add ratings to unrated road segments and suggest edits for roads that have already been rated.
