Measuring the Pedestrian Streetcape
Thursday, February 13, 2014

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.
