WALKSPANTM is an urban technology and planning firm dedicated to developing technologies and services that direct pedestrians to streets that meet their walking criteria, providing the experience they want while positively impacting their health, the local economy, and the environment. We gather and analyze urban and environmental data to create walkable routes displayed through maps, hyperlinks, and mobile apps.

We also use this data to look for placemaking opportunities to create pedestrian spaces that are suited to everyone’s needs. Below are examples of placemaking measures and how we can apply those to a sidewalk that has low walkability.
