    I also know in Arlington "bike lane" vs "buffered bike lane" but I'm not currently showing that distinction either.
    We just need a simple color chart for the 26 different types of bike infrastructure one may encounter.

    I guess it wouldn't if conventional bike lanes were as wide as a standard buffered lane including the buffer, but with few exceptions they are not, AFAICT.

    Ah. Maps, like data analysis in general, is not neutral wrt conceptual assumptions. FIRST you have to decide what distinctions matter. If someone thinks that flexpost protected bike lanes are great, but that car parking protected ones are unsafe due to visibility issues, then they might want to group the flexpost protected ones, concrete paver protected ones, and properly daylighted parking protected ones together, while putting other parking protected ones in a different category. Those concerned about dooring as a major threat might want to seperate door zone bike lanes from others. Etc, etc.

    BTW, I understand Chris is dealing with existing databases, so can't really get into those issues.

    oh that's easy

    flexposts can be perriwinkle,
    parking protected can be greyish violet,
    concrete paver protected would be light mauve,
    and door zones can be my favorite, pale magenta
