Using GIS to Assess and Route Neighborhood Greenways
Track: Sustainable Development
Authors: Diana Smith
Neighborhood Greenways (NG) accommodate a wide array of users by offering low traffic volumes, low vehicle speeds and treatments that ensure bicycle and pedestrian priority. This paper discusses the use of GIS analysis for the assessment of existing NGs; dissecting spatial relationships in environmental and social data in and around successful NGs. Relationships derived in the assessment are then applied in a GIS-based model to identify potential corridors for future NGs.
