Bicycle Assessment Safety Index Tool (BASIT) 1.0



The Bicycle Assessment Safety Index Tool (BASIT) uses mobile GIS mapping technology to evaluate streets and intersections from the perspective of cyclists for bicycle route planning and evaluation. 


BASIT is intended for non-technical community groups to use, with a dual emphasis on data collection and community coalition building, but public agencies will also find the tool to be useful. BASIT includes a graphical user interface (GUI), custom data entry forms, and desktop GIS map templates together with tool documentation, a technician’s manual and digital and printed promotional media. 


The tool is designed for use in a facilitated workshop setting with GIS technicians on site to train users in operating the tool and synthesizing and displaying collected data.


BASIT was developed by Prof. Marc Schlossberg Associate Professor for UO's Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM) and Associate Director of Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC).
