We are one of the lucky winners of the MobiData BW Hackathon, where we developed “WALKIE” – a prototypic walkability index and an algorithm to calculate potential pedestrian flows. We will continue the development in a 3-month innovation phase.
We are absolutely certain that new directions of our work are necessary to boost the development and application of GOAT. To build more sustainable cities and regions worldwide, we founded our start-up and chose a self-explanatory name: Plan4Better!
We love OPEN SOURCE! It is the heart and soul of GOAT since its start. Driven by this enthusiasm, we have created a new feature in GOAT that provides mapping challenges, encouraging users to participate in the OSM project and fill the data gaps.
GOAT is by far not where we would like it to be. Apart from the on-going professionalization which is seen as crucial to provide a truly useful and stable accessibility instrument, additional features will be implemented on a regular basis.
