The cycling database of Flanders nowadays mentions more and ever better information about bike paths, with widths and distances. Not only can the functional bicycle paths be inventoried, they can also be tested against the bicycle paths that should be theoretically available. This conformity analysis indicates whether or not a cycle path meets the requirements for a safe cycling path and is therefore in line with the high quality requirements of the government.
A broad group of actors has access to the web application (map visualization, reporting possibilities, offering web services, …). As a result they can be more closely involved in the management of cycle paths. Moreover, all this information ensures that it is possible to decide more objectively which cycle paths should first be tackled.
