Data Collection Tools
We have come up with a set of data collection tools that can be used by everyone to improve walkability. Our Pathway Measurement Tool (PathMeT) is a proprietary device which can be used (by us or others) to collect high-resolution data at a rapid pace (~2mi/hr).
Our mobile tools allow everyone to volunteer data. pathVu is our app that allows smartphone users to capture locations and pictures of sidewalk defects that you pass by every day.
We aggregate raw data that has been collected with our data collection tools and filter it using proprietary algorithms to develop accurate maps of sidewalks worldwide. These maps include sidewalk topology and sidewalk attributes such as sidewalk defects.
Data Application and Visualization
Our data can be used to locate and monitor sidewalk defects (which reduce walkability) and provide the framework for sidewalk wayfinding tools. We offer access to the data through web and mobile applications, and also through APIs.
