Measuring the Pedestrian Streetcape

Thursday, February 13, 2014

3:00 PM - 4:15 PM EST

Walking is the number one physical activity choice for most people, and, increasingly, an important aspect of our transportation system. Yet, much of our built environment does not support safe, routine and enjoyable walking.  Communities are often unsure of which walkability reforms to focus on, how to prioritize investments or clear about what outcomes they can anticipate.

This webinar will introduce participants to the Microscale Audit for Pedestrian Streetscape (MAPS) tool that can help communities assess the activity-friendliness of streets, sidewalks, and crossings.

This webinar will provide an overview of the tool and outline for communities the most promising ways to use it. Some of the studies that have used MAPS will be presented and examples of how the audit results have been used will be provided. The type of training needed to best conduct this audit will be discussed.  Anyone interested in walking and finding ways to create safe, walking environments should join this webinar.

Presenters:

PrJames Sallis, Distinguished Professor of Family and Preventive Medicine, University of California, San Diego

Kelli Cain, MAPS Project Manager, University of California, San Diego

Webinar is FREE and log-in instructions will be sent upon registration
