Walkonomics aims to rate the pedestrian-friendliness of streets
May 20, 2013 Andrey F

Walkonomics / plural noun / 1. rating the walkability of streets, neighbourhoods and cities by combining the views of large groups of people, local communities and public data. 2. art of creating streets and urban areas that are pedestrian friendly.
Walkonomics aims to rate the pedestrian-friendliness of every street in the world. By enabling ordinary people and local communities to add a rating of any street, it is hoped that a realistic walkability score will be created for each street. Where available, public datasets are also used to add ratings and provide more quantitative reviews. By harnessing the power of 'crowd-sourcing', social media and open data, Walkonomics aims to become a self-organising system where users correct any inaccuracies or errors in street reviews.
