Rating Walkability By Combining Open Data and Crowdsourcing

"How do we know if a street or area is walkable?

Is it just about how many different destinations are within walking distance of any particular spot? While that’s a really important factor, its obviously not the only one.

What about other factors like being able to cross the street easily, feeling safe from crime and the steepness of hills? Research has found that these issues also have a big impact on what makes a street walkable and gets more people walking."
