This June, Gloucestershire County Council will be crowdsourcing a condition survey of cycle infrastructure with a mobile game — everyone can participate and earn money by taking part.
By taking part in the event, you have a great opportunity to cycle around the county for a good cause and earn money. All you need is a smartphone, a bicycle and a phone holder attached to the bike’s handlebars. The Crowdsorsa mobile game can be downloaded for free from App Store and Google Play.
Main idea of the survey is to collect virtual fruit and berries from Crowdsorsa’s map by recording video of the highlighted routes while riding. The video data is then analysed and this information will assist the council in understanding where improvements are needed on cycle infrastructure network. Users earn money for every collected object, approximately £2.50 per mile.
If the weather is clear, the survey will start at 10am on Thursday, 2 June. You can have a look at the survey instructions given in the Gloucestershire mission on Crowdsorsa app. Even more information can be found on Crowdsorsa’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/crowdsorsa) and website (www.crowdsorsa.com).
