rwalkable

The goal of rwalkable is to look up and summarise some information about the walkability of a neighbourhood. We look at two components of walkability:

  • how many places are there within walking distance that you might want to go to (per hectare)?
  • is there a reasonably dense network of roads or paths to walk on (number of road segments connections minus number of intersections, per hectare)

We use data from OpenStreetMap for both components, via the osmdata package: it provides both a road network and a list of locations ('amenities') that someone has thought worth adding to the map. Most of the heavy lifting is done by the dodgr package.

Installation

#install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("ropenscilabs/rwalkable")

Example

The location can be specified as (the centre of) a geographic area that OpenStreetMap knows about, or as a two-element vector of latitude and longitude

library(rwalkable)
nearby("Paris, France")
#> Within  800  m of Paris, France 
#>    7.6 points of interest per hectare
#>    2.2 road branches per hectare
nearby("Paris, Texas")
#> Within  800  m of Paris, Texas 
#>    0 points of interest per hectare
#>    0.4 road branches per hectare

More detail is better:

 nearby("3rd Arrondissement, Paris, France")
#> Within  800  m of 3rd Arrondissement, Paris, France 
#>    7.1 points of interest per hectare
#>    2.2 road branches per hectare
