Pedestrian Network Planning

Does anyone know of any online guides to pedestrian network planning? I am putting together a proposal to do a literature review of international best practice in ped network planning and facilities design. This will lead to the development of a national guide to these things. Most of my experience has been in facilities design rather than network planning so any pointers to useful resources would be appreciated :)

Thanks green lizard, it looks useful. I am still interested, proposal's not in yet, but anyway it's an ongoing area of interest for me.

We won the contract so we've got the work! If anyone knows of any resources, I'm even more interested now!

I realise I originally asked for online guides to pedestrian network planning, what I meant was links to information about guides - but heck, if someone actually has an online guide, I'd be impressed!!

Try looking for articles by John Zacharias, from Concordi University in Montreal. He has done / is currently doing research on pedestrian movements and networks in the underground system in Montreal and a shopping mall in China. He has modles that predict and show routes, key destination locations and other things you might be interested in.

Here is a link to his contact info:
