CicLAvia Tour Integrates Crowdsourcing

As cyclists toured Watts and other parts of South Los Angeles, they were invited to share photographs and record places of interest along the way.

"In addition to riding from the park to the Watts Towers, cyclists were encouraged to take photos for a 'crowd-sourced' map that will feature pictures and recordings cyclists took along the route."

"Many were armed with iPhones and ear buds, but when an organizer assured the riders that they didn't need a smartphone to participate, one man sighed audibly.

'Ooh, that means I can take pictures, then,' said Fred Buggs, who uses a scratched-up Samsung cellphone. "I'm not sure how old it is," admitted Buggs, who lives near the park."
