The Hexagon Geospatial M.App platform looks like a pretty cool way to build reusable map based applications. We couldn't get access to the full platform itself for this weekend (just the M.App Chest and M.App Reader), so we've done our best to design a M.App, based on the capabilities shown in the INSPIRE video.
The problem we're attacking is smarter cycling investment decision making (and route selection), by combining raw crash data with usage patterns to give more sophisticated insights into cycling risk. A high number of crashes in one place may not indicate high risk if the local volumes are also very high.
We're submitting a concept video rather than a working prototype as suggested by Defkalion at Hexagon Geospatial.
