Walkability is defined as the extent that an environment supports a human’s ability and desire to engage in walking. The reasons to walk are identified as leisure, exercise, or recreation; to access services; or to travel to work.
The maps displayed in this app show walkability measures calculated using densities of destinations, road intersections, population, parks and trails.
Use the Walkability Measures menu in the upper left corner to explore the five maps. When zoomed in, click on a grid cell for detailed counts of the features contained within that cell. Click and hold a location to see it in Google Street View.
