Clue Ride Glossary

This Glossary is not as up-to-date as the glossary shared as a Google Doc:

Points of Interest

  • Geographic location on the map
  • Unique ID
  • Add locks and keys found at this Point of Interest (can be more than one depending on difficulty level and also to provide variety)
  • Point of Interest may be a business establishment who sponsors

Capture POI

Edit POI

Group POI


  • A Leg is a path from one POI to another POI. These are what the User understands as a single traversal of the course between two POI.
  • A Segment is a road, bike path, trail, or other routable transportation facility that has a start/end (and thus a length) and 1) can be described given a single rating and 2) would have no intermediate nodes. Adding a POI on a given Segment — or sufficiently close to that segment — will cause that Segment to be broken into two Segments.
  • A Leg has an overall rating which is the length-weighted average of the segments making up that Leg.
  • Legs are strung together in a particular sequence to form a Course.
  • The Course can be determined ahead of time, or modified on the fly by choosing different POI and Legs.

Capture Segment

Provide methods for entering the data for a given segment

Rate Segment

Provide methods for determining an appropriate rating for a given segment

Split Segment

Take a given Segment and add a Node which becomes the end for one new segment's start and the start for the other segment's end.

Map Route to Segments

Given a GPS track, find the segments which correspond to that track. Display both the track and the segments so gaps can be reconciled.

Display/List unrated Segments

Lock and Key

POI may have a Lock and Key


Course is a route (linking points of interest and their locks and keys) along with the clues to traverse the route.
This links together Points of Interest into a continuous route. For each pair, Actor will

  • Identify Origin (may not be a Point of Interest to begin the route since people may be riding from somewhere off the course.
  • Identify Destination
  • Provide clues, one or more of the following:
    • Verbal description of the Point of Interest
    • Image or Video
    • Series of turns (coded or otherwise)
    • Route on a map highlighting the turns to make
