Walkscore Getting Smarter

One of the criticisms of Walkscore has been that it used “as-the-crow-flies” distance calculations to amenities, so addresses got credit for access to amenities that might not actually be accessible by foot (on the other side of a freeway for example).

Well, that’s changing. There’s now a beta of a version that calculates actual walking routes to destinations. Very cool to see the results plotted out.

Happy to see my house still scores a 96 :-)
