Applications such as Walk Score assess a community’s existing connectivity and mobility. An iterative, customized score for each neighborhood would enable the city’s neighborhood planning group to base a connectivity score on more fine-grained data. This would be gathered into a database and then uniquely applied to the city’s GIS application through this effort, so that the score could be used in a predictive fashion. For example, how would adding sidewalks in a certain area, or supporting connectivity to shopping and education through infrastructure increase the score?
