I'm working pedestrian connectivity for a guidebook. What quantifiable methods have you used to calculate walkability?
Due to timing & budget this will focus on just the walkability standpoint for streets/paths layout and not a qualitative analysis of the enjoyment of the walk (detached sidewalks, landscaping, architecture, etc.).
We had been using a intersection:street length ratio and a link:node ratio but found it really wasn't providing realistic results. Any other calculations/ratios that help identify walkable and unwalkable areas? Thanks.
