Since making the first version of the Chicago Offline Bike Map app, a bike map stored in your iOS device and doesn’t need an Internet connection, I’ve made several important changes and added new features. I’ve upgraded twice how train stations will be appearing. I’ve completely changed the way it looks by using jQueryMobile. Also with v0.2 you’ll find more points of interest, locate yourself using the iOS device hardware (results will vary on a variety of hardware and location factors), and zoom to any neighborhood.
I want your help. I want to make a list of at least 20 points of interest. I’ve no qualifications, but this is who I think my target audience is: people who have cycled in Chicago for a while, people who have just started cycling, people who have iOS devices (I will expand to Android eventually), and who know how to use a map.
Current points of interest are:
- All CTA and Metra stations
- All neighborhoods
- Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
- Field Museum of Natural History
- Museum of Science and Industry
- DuSable Museum
- Harold Washington Cultural Center
- Chicago Cultural Center
- Holography Museum
- Museum of Contemporary Art
- Chicago City Hall
- Chicago Velo Campus
- Millennium Park Bike Station
- SAIC Bike Fixit Station
Train stations on the map.
Excluding train stations and neighborhoods, there are 12 points of interest. What else should I add? (Since posting this I’ve added the three largest libraries: Harold Washington Library Center, Woodson Regional, and Sulzer Regional.)
P.S. I plan to make an Android version of this app, but I have no timeline on that. Follow app development at the app’s Tumblr.
