Walk Score (Phila. only)

An online application, which enables users to view calculated walkability ranks and related neighborhood metrics, such as proximity of nearby businesses, service providers, and recreational/outdoor spaces. Users can select geographic parameters (neighborhood names), or search for specific locations (addresses), to access mobility data, which is also visualized on a heat map tool with marked features. In addition to walkability, the application also gauges a transit score, which measures the convenience/proximity to public transit opportunities. Users can also access walkability and transit score through an API.
