“Street Smart” Walk Score calculates a score based on walking routes to nearby amenities. It also calculates road connectivity metrics such as block length and intersection density for any address.
How it Works
For every Street Smart score, we generate hundreds of walking routes to find the nearest amenities. We also analyze the underlying Open Street Map data to calculate the number of intersections and average block length.
We developed Street Smart Walk Score in conjunction with the Walk Score Advisory Board and Dr. Larry Frank, Professor of Sustainable Transportation at the University of British Columbia, and with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
