Using GIS to help create a network of bike and walking paths, linking residential areas to service (including transport hubs) and business areas.

This will improve peoples mobility using a sustainable approach. Using GIS capability to analyse better geographical data, it is possible to create a network of "green" paths attracting people to move from their homes to their destinations in a cheaper, healthier and sustainable way.
In urban sprawl areas such as my home area (Almada, Portugal) it could make a difference in reducing traffic congestion, car emissions on the air, families budget and healthier population.
