Whats up there?

A run/bicycle app where you get a target point somewhere in the city, once your there you get a new one. The city should be an adventure!

The idea is to make an app, simple and clean. There is an map of your location and it is zooming out a bit. Close by there is a dot popping up and a time (no record, just doable) you run/bicycle to the spot and a new spot pops up.
This way you could send ppl to the nice spots in your city, or let them discover there own “hotspots”

off course the info of the routes can tell you a lot of how the urban structure of the city works and how it could improve, but more importantly you give people a way to find there own and probably a new route true the city.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

Everybody. There could be multiple types of people using the app, there could be a “what’s up there?” For runners, bicycles, people in wheelchairs, elderly, children/school class, tourist, workers on there lunch break, people with animals ect. All with there own targets. For children you will avoid routes across busy streets and maybe to little kinder gardens, elderly could go exciting buildings or musea (that they didn’t even know they where there) for everybody! How good you think you know the city, there is always some places to discover

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I think this is an easy job for one developer To make the app and an urban designer that can work with multiple groups of residence to figure out a starting map, other people could contribute by adding extra spots. It is a low key idea with possibly a nog impact

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • $25,000

Rough budget (500 characters)

I don’t know what making this app will cost, but once it is out there people could contribute to make the app more advice

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

I would like to see some short commercials on screens in the city showing some elderly running a round, and a atlete doing the “wheelchair route” and a child behind a big dog doing the dog route with something like, are you ready to challenge? I hope to see some intrest in the idea with simple video’s to see if there is a supporting base for it

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

A website where you can get more info of the coming app?

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

People could register there runs/walks and they a reward % On there health insurance
