HEURISTIC EVALUATION

WHAT: Examination of an interface (the street) to judge its compliance with recognized usability principles (the “heuristics").

WHY: Tangibly evaluate how usable a street is for everyday people riding a bike and learn about strong and weak points of a street’s usability.

END GOAL: Build a common language for citizens and planners around cycling experience. Move away from planning jargon and towards people’s feelings and experiences.
