Google Map will now show the Routes for Cyclists
According to Google, after the outbreak of COVID-19, the demand for bicycle navigation in Google Maps increased by 69%. Now the Google Map will have several useful features for cyclists from some major US cities like it will show the routes for cyclists.
In Google Maps you will now be able to find information about different types of bike paths and convenient for cycling on the street.
In addition, Google Maps will also display more detailed information about the availability of a bicycle-sharing system with step-by-step pedestrian crossings and bicycle routes to and from the docking station.
To implement the function, the company used a machine learning algorithm, crowdsourcing data, and data collected by local municipalities. Whether these features will appear in other cities around the world is not reported.
