Spatial Footprint Assessment Method
In addition to the 4 methods that served as the base for the Bicycle User Experience concept, this blog will be translating more human centered design methods to the context of street design for everyday biking. These blog posts are initial explorations.
The twelfth new method we'll explore is Spatial Footprint Assessment.
What: Assessment and visualization of the paths of different users on a street.
Why: See how street space is being used in practice and identify opportunities to improve street environment through design.
End Goal: Street geometry that best utilizes the available space, serves the street’s function and improves safety based on the behavior of the users.
What are your thoughts? How do you think this method could be used in practice, and by whom (planners, advocacy groups, elected officials)?
