Bergen’s Most Dangerous Cycle Paths

· in Norwegian

We’d previously asked our readers where they feel unsafe on their bicycle. This article takes them on a ride along Bergen’s most dangerous cycle paths.

My favourite part of this project was the data gathering. I built a reusable toolchain that lets users tip us off about places by drawing them on a map.

(It also cured me of my fear of WebGL.)

The Sound of Berlin

· in German

One of my first projects at Der Tagesspiegel takes readers on an auditory journey through the German capital.

I’m especially happy with the virtual audio tours that let readers listen in at any point along a path on a map. I had to find a way to let colleagues cut the audio track while keeping it in sync with the GPS track.
