A civic software company called Front Seat is trying to rate cities’ walkability through a program called Walk Score that it launched in July 2007. Walk Score works by “gaug[ing] the pedestrian-friendliness of locations.” Basically, it takes your address and runs it through a mathematical algorithm that corresponds to a map of your neighborhood. This algorithm assigns points to amenities – schools, workplaces, shopping centers, et cetera – in your neighborhood. These amenities get more points if they are closer to your home; the points add up to your Walk Score.
