History of this content:
This documentation project manifested from my love of route planning and map data, and my love of the Ghost Bikes concept. My initial intent was to simply create a KML of all Chicago area Ghost Bike locations, since it did not seem to yet exist, that being the standard map data file format used by common apps and websites.
I exhaustively read all content on pertinent websites and even mailing list history and press to consolidate the information here. Finally, in mid-November 2009 a dozen pals did a tour of those existing at that time to accumulate the initial photos, and this guide has been live ever since.
I currently do not attempt to cover each in much depth on this web version. Just location, date, photo, and sign, then links. A comprehensive PDF several of the victims stories is available for download.
