Measurement Instrument for Urban Design Quantities Related to Walkability
The Measurement Instrument for Urban Design Quantities measures five urban design qualities of streetscapes: imageability, visual enclosure, human scale, transparency, and complexity. The operational definitions take the form of statistically-derived equations that link objectively measured physical features of the environment to ratings of urban design qualities. To aid in the dissemination of the measures, a field survey instrument and training manual is available to help researchers understand relationships between the built environment and walking behavior.
